Skyway

Queens, New York, 2013-2014

Western Queens is the home of New York’s two major airports, La Guardia and JFK. The flight traffic overhead is a daily part of the landscape and life in Queens, a constant reminder of the transient nature of life in the city. Over the course of several walks, I explored the landscape between these two airports, navigating the pedestrian infrastructure that connects them to the diverse neighborhoods. While it may not be possible to take a flight from one airport to the next, walking between them offers a unique perspective on the Queens landscape.
