Dwarfed by the glass and steel giants of the modern age lies the Long Island City Courthouse. Once the most important building in Queens County, the courthouse once was home to the District Attorney, two jails, and the Criminal Courts. It is now home to a Civil Term of the county’s Supreme Court. This little gem of a building is quite possibly the most beautiful structure in Long Island City. Its Beaux Arts architecture is a reminder of Fusion era New York, when anything and everything seemed possible. When cities and governments took pride in civic duty and and their structures showed it. When Manhattan was joined with the four outer boroughs in 1898 it was seen as a grand occasion. New York, capable of anything, was worthy of only the most exquisite and grand architecture for its new, massive city government. The first 40 years of the new, five borough city was filled with immense promise and potential. Anything was possible, any problem solvable. It makes today’s New York City pale in comparison in many ways.

Queensboro Bridge. Less photographed than the Brooklyn or Manhattan bridges, but always extra busy. Also known as the 59th Street Bridge to older generations, has recently been renamed again!

What’s been happening on Long Island City the past decade is something of an amazing achievement. What was once chop shops, red light districts, dilapidated factories, and empty waterfront has been transformed into a small city of its own. LIC has more skyline than most small cities, and as of this writing there are six towers going up with about ten planned for the foreseeable future. The development and gentrification of the city is most visible here, mainly because of these epic towers. With the city at a crossroads, we need to establish a sustainable medium between development, growth, and city beautification and culture, community, and heritage. That’s another day’s discussion. Long Island City and it’s people have a special place in my heart.
