About Long Island City
Long Island City is a vibrant community in western Queens, one of the five boroughs of New York City. The neighborhood is home to a rapidly growing and diverse population, attracted by its vibrant arts scene of bold galleries, museums and performance spaces. Long Island City has something for everyone, whether you enjoy dining out at a number of top-rated restaurants, browsing a local gallery or performance space, or admiring the impressive view of the Manhattan skyline from the community's Gantry Plaza.
The History of Long Island City
Long Island City's history dates back to the 1630s, when Dutch settlers established Jarck's Farm, a 160-acre peninsula in present-day Astoria. This farm helped establish Long Island City as a farming community, a reputation it upheld until the 19th century. The Dutch settlers initially lived peacefully with the area's Native American inhabitants, until nearby Dutch neighbors in Jersey City and Manhattan took advantage of tribespeople in their communities, sparking the Indian outbreak of 1643. There was more trouble in the area in 1776, when Congress declared independence from Britain, leading to the Battle of Long Island. British troops invaded Queens County and stayed there until 1783.
Long Island City was an independent city until the late 1890s, when Queens was annexed as a part of New York City. Subway tunnels connecting the area with Manhattan were developed during the 1930s, spurring significant growth. Although many businesses left the area during the 1960s and '70s, redevelopment in the early 2000s brought about a revitalization of Long Island City that's returned it to its former glory.
Long Island City was a predominantly industrial area in its early years, but now many of its warehouses have been converted into restaurants, galleries and performance spaces. As some manufacturing plants have left the region, it's made way for smaller businesses, including artisan food producers and technology startups. These businesses are attracted to Long Island City by its central location and affordable rents, which have in turned helped diversify the local economy. Several movie and television studios call Long Island City home, as does the nation's largest fortune cookie company, Wonton Foods.
While there's a growing number of jobs in Long Island City, its proximity to Manhattan provides even more job options. If you don't find a job that fits your interests or experience in Long Island City, commuting to Manhattan or other neighboring boroughs is extremely easy, thanks to public transit.
