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.learn more about this neighborhood

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.
