ORD [The Oracle of Real-estate Development] Appears Outside NY Art Book Fair 2018

Sunday September 23, 2 - 4:15 pm
Outside the NY Art Book Fair at PS1 MoMA
225 Jackson Ave, Long Island City, NY 11101

Ever wonder why the local landscape is dominated by construction sites? Whether you can afford a new place if you need to move? What ULURP means and why you should care?

Come ask the Oracle any question you have about real estate, affordability, development, residential and commercial property, displacement, gentrification, and NYC's construction-dominated landscape!

Together we'll compile questions asked with the Oracle's answers to make a collective oracle poem at 4pm. This is a drop-in event - come for part or all!-)

You can also take a self-guided walk/tribute to 5Pointz, the former graffiti mecca of the world, now a construction site for luxury apartments, like much of Long Island City. Instructions and map available.

ORD [The Oracle of Real-estate Development] WILL APPEAR IN L.I.C.
Saturday May 19, 3:00 - 6:00 pm

ORD is a new mobile participatory project that will appear in Long Island City, Queens, NYC, on 46th avenue (between Vernon Blvd & 5th st) and on Vernon Boulevard (between 46th Ave and 44th Drive). Somewhere around there - just ask any psychic.

Long Island City is the most rapidly-developing neighborhood in the United States. ORD answers your questions on real estate topics including zoning, rents, studio space, displacement, infrastucture, speculation, property values, etc.

Our questions and ORD's answers will form a collective poem to be read at 5:45 pm in the vicinity of 4-40 44th Drive (the Anable Basin Event Space).

This project is part of the LIC Arts Open.
