Welcome to Long Island City
Sleek high-rises, scenic public spaces, and East River views make Long Island City an equally modern (but much less hectic) answer to downtown Manhattan.
Things to do in Long Island City
Long Island is an expansive, densely populated island in southeastern New York State, stretching east from New York City. Along its Atlantic coast are Jones Beach State Park, Fire Island and Montauk Point State Park, the latter home to the late-1700s Montauk Lighthouse. On the east end, the North Fork is home to wineries and the Hamptons are towns characterized by upscale homes, trendy restaurants and antiques shops.
The ramen here tends to be a little less fatty than at other spots, so you get a ton of flavor without feeling terrible.
High-quality BBQ. Their burnt ends, which are also referred to as Kansas City caviar, may be the best bite of BBQ in the whole city.
Grocery chain with a variety of signature items, plus produce, dairy & more (most sell wine & beer).
Grab-and-go selection of upscale prepared foods attached to a sprawling gourmet grocery store.
For those who think you can’t rock climb in NYC, The Cliffs at LIC will prove you wrong.
