This is Program B in a series of three programs of sevenlocalfilm.com docs of mine, mainly about Queens and immigration. The content and form of each program is distinct, but they each were shot in Jackson Heights-Elmhurst where they will screen at Terraza 7, inaugurating its new outdoor screening room.

BETWEEN NEIGHBORHOODS (2018, 81 mins) works between original and archival footage in split screen to contemplate the present and past of immigration and imperialism that orbit the Unisphere since the last NY World's Fair.  It audiovisualizes the confrontation of two forms of globalization, one social and the other corporate, that are at odds in Queens between the age of Robert Moses, who built the giant stainless-steel armillary and that of AOC, whose district surrounds it.  You can read more about the film and the entire evening's program, as well as the other events in this series here:

The entire series, 23, 24, 30 October @ 6:30 pm @Terraza 7, is free and open to all, thanks to a City Arts Corps Grant from the NY Foundation for the Arts, NYC Dept of Cultural Affairs, the Mayor's Office for Media and Entertainment, and the Queens Theatre.

The content and form of each program is distinct, but they each were shot in Jackson Heights-Elmhurst where they will screen at Terraza 7.  And the Time of Covid has only made, I feel, the themes and issues they address and evoke very relevant now.  I look forward to the postscreening conversations .

Yes! Let's funnel this money into the community center we all need and deserve. It's certainly a lot of cash on the table here and there is available real estate in the nabe. Let's do this!!!

Reminder: This forum has no power in the real world.

First world problem?  ;)

Well better than another chain or a bank. There's a steam table in the back, so it's good for lunch/dinner too.

Yeah we were disappointed about this, because it was our top choice for Indian food in JH, and it was a nice, sit-down place with an extensive menu. Too bad.

New bakeries...just what we need! Seriously, how does anyone stave off diabetes and heart disease around here? Temptations everywhere.

It appears this project is on ice. And I doubt it'll go ahead. Hooray!
That air train was going to run along the Flushing Promenade...which would more or less have wrecked the beauty of that path, with elevated trains running back and forth.
