Saturday, June 17
10:00 AM

Led by Jim Mackin. One of Long Island City's Industrial Corridors that had automobile manufacturing, assorted paper products, parachute production, and gas masks for World War I. The rapid rise of skyscraper apartment buildings contrasts with what is left of the industrial past. The final destination will be the Museum of the Moving Image, known as the Kaufman Studios, but originally an impressive Paramount Studio. Walking distance will be less than 2 miles.

Meet in the Queensboro Bridge Greenway/Bike Path on Queens Plaza North and 27th Street. You can take the #7, or N or Q subway to Queensboro Plaza. Or there is some street parking and parking garages nearby.

Reservations are not needed for this tour.
