Long Island City Sesquicentennial (1870 – 2020)

150 Years in the Making

With Bob Singleton

From colonial tide mills to the one time heart of American industry, LIC remains the ‘Cradle of Creativity.’ Walk past quaint blocks, gleaming towers, monuments to industry, art’s cutting edge. Long Island City never disappoints! To paraphrase Jane Jacobs “(If) a neighborhood shows an ability to update itself, enliven itself, repair itself, or be sought after, out of choice, by a new generation,- it is alive.” A perfect description for Long Island City today!
