For those who prefer their own space, clear of Manhattan's looming skyscrapers, there's this charming Long Island City escape. Another of the city's former industrial hubs, LIC is one of the city's most exciting and vibrant neighbourhoods. With rents still within the reach of young artistic types, there's an intoxicating creative energy here, with bold street art, experimental art galleries and innovative eateries around every corner. Spend a cultural afternoon immersed in the exhibits of the nearby MoMA PS1, check out free-form jazz at low-key local bars, and take your pick from Michelin-starred Mexican cuisine or more casual food truck fare at Gantry Plaza State Park. For a new take on a classic, look no further than Long Island City studio.
