Private and common furnished rooms, free utilities, fast wi-fi, and a great community are just a few of the things you’ll find at our Long Island City Home in Long Island City — named one of the best places to live in New York. We’ve designed our home to mirror the creative vibe of LIC — the local’s name for the area — with eclectic touches and a cozy feel. Murals of Italian villas are scattered about in the three-story home complete with two open kitchens, stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar, and spacious room for potluck dinners. The open living space is perfect for movie nights or for relaxing after a day in the hectic City. That’s the beauty of LIC, it’s equally exciting but much less hectic than Midtown Manhattan.
Once home to big factories like Pepsi-Cola and Steinway Pianos, Long Island City has reinvented itself, transforming the industrial to the creative with artist lofts and funky art spaces like MOMA PS1, Noguchi Museum and the Sculpture Center.
