Once an epicenter of manufacturing, Long Island City is now home to one of the City’s most exciting art scenes. The neighborhood is dotted with late 19th- and early 20th-century industrial buildings that have been transformed into galleries, museums and studios, and there’s a fast-growing list of must-visit restaurants, shops and performance venues. It’s home to PS1, the Museum of Modern Art’s Queens outpost, along with Socrates Sculpture Park—an open studio and outdoor gallery whose view of the Manhattan skyline makes it one of the City’s best picnic spots.
This neighborhood, just one subway stop from Midtown Manhattan, offers great art, food and adventures.

When this bridge—which connects Queens to Manhattan and runs above the East River—opened in March 1909, it was heralded with major parties and events, dubbed the "Queensboro Bridge Celebration." Although horse-drawn carriages were the first vehicles to cross the bridge on a regular basis, today the toll-free 59th Street Bridge (as it is also known) is flooded with cars and trucks, has two levels and 10 lanes, passes over Roosevelt Island and is nearly 3,800 feet long.
