Being the first of your group of friends to rent one of the many Long Island City apartments may just give you endless bragging rights.
Given how close LIC, in Queens, is to Manhattan, only one subway stop from Grand Central on the 7, the rent is not cheap, but not expensive either (all things NYC real estate being relative.) Studios will run between $900 and $1,200. One bedroom apartments will range from $1,100 to $2,000. And two bedroom apartments will run from $1,600 to $4,000. If you want a luxury, new construction, apartment for rent in Long Island City, you’re looking at the high end and beyond of those ranges.Find Long Island City apartments
