This sunbather was relaxing on the lawn of 805 27th Avenue in Astoria when she was snapped by Berenice Abbott in 1937. Nowadays, the formerly pictured freestanding mansion with a gracious lawn appears to have been replaced by a larger apartment building. Which larger apartment building at the given intersection is pretty unidentifiable; the address no longer exists. If building residents today wanted to sun themselves on the lawn, they'd be confined to a rather slim strip surrounding the building which is probably verboten to enjoy.
