It’s in Queens

More than 150 local residents — representing about 70 countries — gathered in front of the Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Corona Park for a photo by Jonathan Kane on June 9, 2018.
Entitled “A Great Day in Queens,” the image demonstrates the borough’s incredible diversity, unity, and tolerance. It also pays homage to Jonathan’s father, Art Kane, who took a world famous photo of 57 legendary jazz musicians in front of a brownstone on 126th Street in Manhattan 60 years ago.
Last week, Jonathan presented a signed copy of the “Great Day in Queens” poster to Borough President Melinda Katz.
The Queens Tourism Council, a division of the Queens Economic Development Corporation, organized the photo shoot and is selling the poster for $10 each ($20 with shipping and handling). To buy a copy, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are three photos below this text. The first one is Jonathan Kane’s image from 2018. The second one is Art Kane’s photo from 1958. The third one depicts the poster presentation to Borough President Katz, which shows (from left) QEDC Deputy Director Ricardi Calixte, QTC Director Rob MacKay, Kane, Katz, QEDC Marketing and Communications Manager Erika Campoverde, QEDC Executive Director Seth Bornstein, and Peter Mendez from Mendez Printing.
