This March 6, 2013 photo shows "Raymond & Toby," a 1994 sculpture by John Ahearn at Socrates Sculpture Park in the Astoria section of the Queens borough of New York. The waterfront park is one of several art-related attractions in Astoria and the adjacent neighborhood of Long Island City. A boom in moderately priced hotels in Long Island City has begun luring tourists to the area. Along with museums, parks, hotels and ethnic restaurants, the area is still home to a large industrial base, from auto shops to factories. (AP Photo/Beth J. Harpaz)
