Long Island City
Long Island City, or LIC, is a neighborhood in western Queens with waterfront on the East River. It is bounded by Hazen Street, 49th Street, New Calvary Cemetery, and Newtown Creek. The neighborhood contains the eastern terminus of the Queensboro Bridge, also known as the 59th Street Bridge, and the Queensbridge Houses, a massive government-subsidized housing complex controlled by the New York City Housing Authority. The formerly industrial waterfront area of LIC has become the site of redevelopment into luxury residential condominium and rental buildings. These include the Linc LIC and One Murray Park. Property Markets Group and the Hakim Organization are in the process of developing the 914-foot-tall residential building, dubbed, Queens Plaza Park, scheduled for completion after 2018. LIC is home to the tallest office building of the outer boroughs, One Court Square, also known as the Citigroup Building. -TA
