Long Island City

Neighborhood Image

Although no longer a city, Long Island City still retains a vibrancy all its own. Until 1898, the city encompassed what is now known as Astoria, Ravenswood, Hunter’s Point, Blissville, Sunnyside, Dutch Kill, Steinway, Middleton and Bowery Bay. Once singularly known for its industrial zones, Long Island City has revamped itself as a creative community, where the arts, culture and small businesses flourish; Silvercup Studios, the Naguchi Museum, Sculpture Center and P.S 1 Contemporary Art Center all call Long Island City home. The area’s affordable apartment housing, easy access into Manhattan and character is a perfect match for those with an independent Bohemian spirit.
