Once known for being an epicenter of the manufacturing industry, Long Island City was rezoned as a residential neighborhood in 2001 — causing the area to undergo significant gentrification as new developments such as Hunter’s South Point were erected. Today, Long Island City is known for its stunning waterfront and thriving arts community — being home to MOMA PS1, the Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Museum, and Culture Lab LIC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the development of art in Western Queens.
In Long Island City, the new Hunter's Point South Park section has opened bringing visitors to a previously inaccessible section of the waterfront with a naturalistic design.
