Long Island City

Good transportation On the rise Young crowd

Long Island City is an up-and-coming neighborhood (unlike most, LIC deserves that label) in the westernmost region of Queens, which is in the process of evolving from an industrial wasteland to a cultural and creative hub.

Despite a longstanding reputation for grittiness, the community has more recently become known for its thriving arts community and growing collection of hip restaurants and cafes, often operated as satellite establishments by hot Manhattan restaurateurs.
