Jackson Avenue, Long Island City - Retail

Fast-changing LIC presents a rare opportunity for retailers. By day and by night, it offers a customer base eager for an eclectic mix of stores, cafes, galleries and more.  Innovative, modern residential buildings house thousands of young professionals, entrepreneurs and artists, with many more apartments coming on the market in 2014.  Local businesses, including Citibank, Silvercup Studios and JetBlue, draw a work force of thousands to the area daily.  In addition, CUNY School of Law draws a student population to LIC.

A thriving cultural scene enlivens this growing community around LIC’s Court Square. The area, shaped by its heavy industrial past, is now populated with studios for musicians, painters and sculptors.  It’s a magnet for the film business, galleries and museums like MoMA PS1, which houses the two-star M Wells Dinette.

Jackson Avenue provides a seldom-seen ground-floor opportunity for smart retailers who bring something beyond the ordinary.  Renovated retail space is now available in storefronts of well-preserved traditional buildings along Jackson Avenue.  Original tenants will attract notice as the buzz builds about New York’s newest neighborhood.
