LIC & Astoria Love Letter
Photos from "LIC & Astoria Love Letter" at Socrates Sculpture Park on June 24, 2017.
"LIC & Astoria Love Letter" featured true life stories from notable residents Louie Gasparro, Jim Hawkins, Gary Lucero, Yvette Ramírez, and Roxanne Shante, who told stories about growing up in Long Island City, Astoria, and Queensbridge and discussed the changes they’ve seen in their neighborhoods. Lou performed the original song “Astoria Park,” and poet Joan Becht Willette recited poems inspired by her life in Astoria and LIC.
A Five Boro Story Project program, "LIC & Astoria Love Letter" was made possible with support from Socrates Sculpture Park.
