Long Island City

This burgeoning neighborhood draws interest from the city’s pioneering art community and Manhattan professionals alike, and has transitioned from factories to fabulous. Just one subway stop from Midtown, LIC is the destination neighborhood with its many cultural hubs and legendary Manhattan skyline views.

The revitalized waterfront is known for its brilliant views of the Manhattan skyline and close proximity to Parks, and is now home to 5,000 residents. Vernon Boulevard is vibrant with activity including great restaurants, bars and shops. In the center of LIC is Court Square, which has quickly emerged as one of the best places to live. With Jackson Avenue, galleries, new chefs, and 7 subway lines within walking distance it is the new hot spot.
