Long Island City

Once considered the most heavily industrialized area in Queens, Long Island City has seen a growing arts and cultural movement take root. The area is home to a slew of arts and cultural institutions, among them PS 1, the Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum, the American Museum of the Moving Image, the Sculpture Center, the Holocenter, the Thalia Spanish Theatre, and Socrates Sculpture Park. Both the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and the Museum for African Art chose Long Island City for their temporary homes as well.
