  This was painted in 2006 in Long Island City, NY. A short time later, I saw that this watertower was on the ground at the foot of the building, waiting to be dismantled and hauled off. It was sad and also strange to see this structure  just lying there.    Here's an excellent article and video for my watertower fans out there.    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/27/nyregion/inside-citys-water-tanks-layers-of-neglect.html?_r=0
