New Courtyard at the Museum of the Moving – A Peaceful Haven Comes to Astoria

Museum of the Moving Image CourtyardThis weekend was the celebration of the new Queens Council for the Arts space in Astoria Queens. It was also an opportunity to see the newly renovated courtyard and outdoor space at the Museum of the Moving Image. Covered in soft pale astroturf and peppered with green trees, this space is a welcomed open space in a side of Astoria that is typically laden with film studios and industrial spaces. The sparse furnishing and wide open space is perfect for anyone looking to get out of the city while still in the city. The Museum hopes to open the courtyard to museum goers in July on the weekends and we are certainly looking forward to it.
