Silver Cup, Long Island City  a new 20x200 edition by William Steiger
From Sara’s newsletter introducing the edition: 
But for all the glimmering futures that this territory may hold on its sturdy, once oyster-strewn cement and tar streets, it is in the outskirts, in Queens, at Silvercup Studios, where new dreams are spun. The space, previously a bakery, now single-handedly serves as a Hollywood of the East, housing the production of shows like The Sopranos, Sex in the City and, now, Girls, as well as films The Savages and The Devil Wears Prada—furthering the lore (for better or for worse) of the city—what it means to live, to love, to build and otherwise make it here. The studio and its sign, like William’s works, nods not only to what we have done, but what we might—filling in for what was, and what will be.
