Fun Facts and History of Long Island City

The official coat of arms for LIC depicts the Native Americans, Dutch, and English that once called the area home. LIC was its own city from 1870 until it became part of the Greater City of New York in 1898. Afterwards, LIC earned the distinction of being the First Ward of the Queens Borough. LIC was a bustling commercial and manufacturing hub as various factories opened up in the area.

In 2001, the city changed LIC’s classification from commercial to residential. Since then dozens of new luxury apartments have been built here to support the growing population. LIC has become known as an artist haven as many museums, galleries, restaurants, and bars open their doors to do business here.


Long Island City Buildings

Long Island City has a mix of both residential and commercial-use buildings. Some buildings are even a combination of two, especially in newer luxury homes. Apartment complexes in this area are generally smaller to mid-rise buildings, although some high rise apartment and office buildings have recently been completed, giving LIC it’s own dazzling skyline.

With one of the highest concentrations of artistic institutions in NYC, Long Island City is a popular neighborhood for young creatives to live in. Due to it's convenient location, residents in the neighborhood have extremely easy access to Manhattan, which also attracts many white collar executives looking to make this up-and-coming neighborhood their home.

Essentially, Long Island City has been growing for the last twenty years and shows no signs of slowing down. With new entertainment, artistic, and commercial venues opening up every year, LIC is quickly becoming the “it” neighborhood in Queens.
