Long Island City: Vibrant, Up and Coming New York City Neighbourhood
Known for art galleries, museums, and quirky studios, Long Island City, or simply LIC, was once an epicentre for manufacturing until the late 1970s. Filled with authentic 19th- and 20th-century industrial buildings, the now transformed neighbourhood is home to world-class tourist attractions like Socrates Sculpture Park. The park boasts views of the famous Manhattan skyline and some of the very best picnic spots.
The list of fast-growing restaurants, high-end shopping outlets, and performance venues make this city one of the top tourist destinations in the world. If you’re after something a little less hectic, but equally as modern as New York City’s Manhattan, then picturesque public spaces, sleek high-rise buildings, and East River views makes Long Island City a great option for your next break.
Live, Work, and Play in Long Island City
You’ll notice even the locals are on the go in this spirited neighbourhood. With laptop-friendly corner cafes and coffee shops, it’s easy to get business meetings out of the way while you enjoy a meal and a cup of coffee at the same time. If you are keen to get out and about, then rock-climbing at The Cliffs might be the way to go, but if history and culture sounds more exciting, then Hunters Point is a must-see. You’ll catch a peek of original Long Island City houses along 45th Avenue, quite a memorable experience for most. If you’re really not in the mood to spend money, the Queensboro Bridge offers a pedestrian walkway as well as a bike lane. You can take your time absorbing the awesome views of Gantry Plaza State Park, the East River, and Upper East Side of Manhattan.
If you get a little peckish while you are out-and-about, you’ll notice there’s no shortage of LIC restaurants either. Popular eateries like Casa Enrique serve traditional Mexican cuisine, and it’s conveniently child-friendly too.
