Read more about this public art project here.
Locost Queue is on view every evening from dusk to midnight through March 13, 2013, located here in Queens, NYC. Take the N/Q/7 subways to Queensboro Plaza and walk east to see the projection from street level – look up! Or take the N/Q trains one more stop to 39 Avenue and you can view the tower from the elevated tracks.
Below are additional shots that did not appear in the original article:

And, for the record, the world’s first punk rock band was from Forest Hills, Queens.

A curious thing about the clocktower at Queens Plaza that I’ve never noticed before, not until I was up inside it last night, is that the roman numeral for the number 4 is actual IIII instead of the more common subtractive IV. I can only assume this was a stylistic decision, since their numerals rotate visually from the center (thus V is upside-down for 5). This would have looked awkward, with IV upside-down, given where the supporting bar is how the other numbers were laid out. Of course I’m intrigued by the fact that I hadn’t noticed this for over 7 years, despite being visually curious in general and usually recognizing these things.
Anyhow here’s a spectacular view of the Sunnyside Yard from the tower:
