There is more to NYC’s art scene than big museums and small, expensive galleries in Lower Manhattan. Come and see where artists really live and work just across the East River. In Long Island City, you can visit artists and interact with them directly. Talk with gallerists that are welcoming and engaging. Understand how you can be an art collector within an affordable budget.
Our LIC Gallery tour will take travelers on a real adventure through old scruffy buildings and re-purposed manufacturing sites where art is being exhibited and made. End your tour on Vernon Boulevard, LIC’s main drag where you can browse new boutiques, shop or enjoy a meal in any number of LIC’s great restaurants.
- See experimental and provocative contemporary sculptures, photography and paintings
