Living in Long Island City, NY

Long Island City is one of the oldest and most storied neighborhoods in the New York area, dating back to the 1630s when a land grant awarded by the Dutch set aside a 160-acre peninsula just across the East River from the burgeoning isle of Manhattan. By the 1800s, Long Island City became a popular community for many well-to-do New Yorkers who were trying to escape the crowds of the city after the Great Migration. One of the biggest families in the United States that called Long Island City home was the Steinways - the famous piano manufacturers. Long Island City has always been a connecting point to the greater New York area, whether by ferry during the 19th century or by the Queens Midtown Expressway and many subways that residents here take today.
