The Neighborhood

Description: 

In the early 1960s, Isamu Noguchi relocated to Long Island City from his studio in Manhattan. He was one of the first artists to move to the area in direct proximity to the artisans, stone carvers and metal workers who were critical to the realization of his works, and who still represent an integral part of the fabric of the neighborhood. After more than twenty years in Long Island City, Noguchi established and designed his Museum directly across from his studio.
