About Us

Long Island City Partnership’s mission is to advocate for economic development that benefits Long Island City’s industrial, commercial, cultural, and residential sectors. The goal is to attract new businesses to LIC, retain those already here, welcome new residents and visitors, and promote a vibrant and authentic mixed-use community. The LIC Partnership operates the Long Island City Business Improvement District (LICBID) and the LIC Industrial Business Zone, among other programs.

Long Island City, located directly across the East River from Midtown Manhattan, is a vibrant mixed-use community. Home to Fortune 500 companies, world-renowned arts and cultural institutions, prominent film and television studios, a large industrial base, and over 70,000 residents, Long Island City is a diverse and authentic NYC neighborhood in the borough of Queens - America's most diverse county.
