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.

Located one quick subway stop from midtown Manhattan, Long Island City is one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Queens - and indeed, in all of New York. Once a manufacturing hub, the neighborhood has undergone an astounding transformation in a few short years. Old factories have been converted into lofts; warehouses have come down and luxury apartments have gone up.
Long Island City is now a major cultural center with a wonderful mix of cafes, art galleries, bars, boutique retailers and restaurants. It's home to a large and thriving artistic community anchored by MOMA PS1, one of the oldest and largest non-profit contemporary art institutes in the United States. It boasts Gantry Plaza State Park, a riverside oasis with awe-inspiring views of Manhattan and recreational facilities like basketball courts, playgrounds, gardens and fountains, even a fishing pier. People flock to LIC for all sorts of reasons. Visitors come for the museums and the waterfront parks, artists for the creative community, and residents for quality of life and convenience. In a city that often feels overcrowded and over developed, Long Island City has a special neighborhood vibe - a city within the city - and the perfect place to call home.

HIGHLIGHTS Why bother with the hassle of the city, when you can enjoy its skyline from western Queens! A quick subway ride from Midtown, Long Island City has quickly become the suburbs inside New York City with the best view of the famous Manhattan skyline.

Long Island City is flanked by the Midtown Tunnel to the south and Queensboro Bridge to the north. It runs along the East River waterfront runs and extends inland to 51st/Hobart Street. Quaint shops, trendy bars and restaurants entice passersby with a range of atmospheres from cozy to contemporary. A major cultural center, LIC is replete with museums, artist lofts as well as many outdoor and indoor galleries.

The history of Long Island City is part of its intrigue. In 1898, 28 years after the original villages and hamlets consolidated themselves into one, Long Island City officially became a part of New York City when the city expanded its borders to include Queens.

The opening of the Queensboro Bridge and other transportation additions made this area even more accessible, which furthered industrial growth here. The decline of manufacturing in the U.S. in the 1970's helped begin to turn this area into a major cultural center with world-class art and working artists. This trend continued in the 21st century with the renovation of warehouses into luxury condos. Today, businesses and residents alike seek out the convenience of Long Island City.
