This sub-section of Long Island City is located one subway stop across the East River from Manhattan, so it’s only about a five-minute ride from Grand Central Station. As such, while the borough of Queens might sound remote to those unfamiliar with New York, the once-industrial and working class ‘hood of Hunter’s Point has been gentrifying for years now.
