What’s New In Long Island City?

Another walking tour by Jack Eichenbaum, this time taking you through Long Island City.

We’ll walk from Queensboro Plaza to the East River waterfront. Rezoning and demographic change stemming from Manhattan spillover spark revitalization in this once stagnant industrial neighborhood. A lively arts community and restaurant scene has developed. The Plaza, where transit lines intersect, has been rezoned for hotels, condos and offices. Gantry Park, on the East River, is the perfect place to view the midtown Manhattan skyline.

The tour takes place on October 22nd and goes from 11am to 1pm.

The cost of the tour is $15 and no reservations are required. If you would like to participate in this tour, please meet at lowest level of the Queensboro Plaza station (fare booth), N,#7 trains.
