From creative types to investment bankers, people are drawn to Long Island City, a sprawling area with amazing views, plenty of waterfront parks, and most importantly, conveniently located, affordable, and stylish units. With Gantry State Plaza Park’s historic Pepsi-Cola sign, volleyball court, soccer field, basketball court, children’s playground, and sandy beach-like area, it’s easy to see why so many people are flocking to LIC—including businesses like JetBlue, Lyft, and Uber. It’s a vibrant art and cultural hub here with the SculptureCenter, Noguchi Museum, Chocolate Factory Obie-winning Theater, and MoMA P.S. 1 (where you can partake at the summer Warm Up Parties). This lively neighborhood also hosts a wide variety of great eateries, so be sure to stop by Mu Ramen for a steaming bowl of noodles or the eclectic Mundo at the Paper Factory Hotel for one of their international dishes.Apartments Roommates
