Loving this Long Island City video from NYCgo

Gantry Plaza State Park

NYCgo has produced a really lovely video called This is New York City—Long Island City, Queens – and yes, it’s all about LIC. It really shows off how awesome LIC is – this is a gem of a neighborhood (we’ve already shown you why we love to eat, have fun, and live here).

We noticed a lot of familiar faces and spots in the video, over two dozen in under two minutes – Gantry Plaza State Park, Sweetleaf, Chimney Cake, Dutch Kills Green, the East River Ferry, MOMA PS1, the Museum of the Moving Image, Noguchi Museum, Socrates Sculpture Park and the floating buddha, Malu, Domaine Wine Bar, and more.

    No features of 5 Pointz, which is one of the most iconic building in LIC.. drowing hundred of thousands of people every year , featured in travel guide such as lonely planet , le routard, le guide vert ..
    A must see spot named by skymiles magazine in 2012 as one of the best FREE outdoor exhibit in the world.
    The location for the finale of Now You see me by Louis leterrier, a multi million dollars movie coming out in June 2013.
    The host of free events every week ends from May to october illustrating the true hip hop culture as a cluster of talent.
    5 pointz is a community, platform for creativity and art expression catering to all ages, races, and culture ..
    Please recognise us : we are New York city , aerosol art and hip hop were born in queens .. we are an essential part of LIC.

    • Thanks for this great comment on 5 Pointz, marie. How are you guys handling the imminent demise of the building? We understand that the space will become residences in the relatively near future.

      I like looking at 5 Pointz whenever I ride the 7 train. I’ve always loved the lightbulbs, too. Thanks again for your comment.

  • LIC Boathouse, The Foundry Event Space, LIC Market, Lisa DiClerico, Krypton Neon, Dutch Kills Bar, Gantry Plaza State Park, Bricktown Ceramics, Matted LIC, The Creek & Cave and The Chocolate Factory Theater are some of the other great LIC icons in this video!!!! Thanks!
