Long Island City: Cradle of Creativity

Janes Walk

Led By Robert Singleton, Executive Director, Greater Astoria Historical Society

LIC has always attracted people of imagination: making marsh into millponds launched NY into a 375-year arc of success – acknowledged by flour barrels on the city’s flag.

Business and the arts always worked well together here. High-end weaving, musical instruments production, and architectural crafts provided an economic base while contributing to its artistic and innovative character earning the community’s title as a “Cradle of Creativity.”
