Last Days at the Iron Triangle is a hand made risograph book of watercolors painted in the streets of Willets Point, Queens, alongside digitally colored ink drawings, archival photos and oral histories. The images were created between September 2022 and September 2023, and the book released just before ground was broken on Phase I of the area’s redevelopment. The book is a snapshot of a moment in the passing of a unique New York City neighborhood.

Book available from the Studio Kitses Shop
