Good friend, Paul Soulellis, has a knack for acquiring some of the best views of the city. Eventually I make a photo or two from these locations. This view is from Paul's artist studio in Long Island City.
A meat and potatoes sort of building. Large industrial windows checkered in various types of lovely glass block. Looking out over the mixture of old and new, with the never ending skyline of midtown Manhattan in the horizon. It's a killer view.
My thanks to Paul for having me to the studio. Make sure you check out Paul's very exciting new studio Counterpractice, which is part of the inaugural set of artists opening the New Museum's New Inc. incubator.
