Long Island City

Long Island City recently became my favorite neighborhood in a city full with favorites. Sure, having one of my best friends calling it home now, and showing me around all the nicest spots might have had something to do with it. But enjoying Long Island City is an inevitability; the place just has an infectiously happy atmosphere that sticks with you long after you’ve left.

Yet the neighborhood has a distinct identity and atmosphere, fully removed from hectic Manhattan

Long Island City is only one subway stop away from Manhattan, so it’s still close to everything
