Between the 1890s and the 1930s, new bridges and trains made access to Long Island City quicker and easier than ever before. The community grew as people and industry moved into the neighborhood. These changes were captured in postcard images that served as an inexpensive, mass-produced means of communication. Long Island City features hundreds of postcards that provide a unique chronicle of Long Island City and its communities, including Old Astoria Village, Steinway, Ravenswood, Dutch Kills, Hunters Point, and Blissville/Sunnyside. This book offers a rare glimpse into the soul of a once and future city of promise.
