Long Island City: Top 10 Date Night Picks
You might know the Pepsi Cola sign, or the Amazon HQ debacle that happened earlier this year, the “other MOMA”, either way, chances are you know Long Island City. Once a hub of manufacturing, this modern borough is a quick train ride over the East River (or bike ride coming from Brooklyn) and now, a hub of condo buildings and renovated warehouse apartments that no-one can afford in Manhattan. LIC, as it’s fondly referred to, has been curated for living, with a good selection of great bars, highly rated restaurants, museums and galleries. Also, clean-lined architecture and serene public spaces that feel modern and sleek, but still charmingly under the radar.
