Last day of Queens Art Express is the first day of Live at the Gantries
Long Island City. The name alone inspires thoughts of hip bars, trendy restaurants, amazing condos and a true, old school Queens neighborhood feel. While visitors and residents enjoy all of these elements of LIC, they also appreciate Gantry Plaza State Park. This serene gem at the waters edge of the East River in Hunters Point allows you to take in magnificent views of the big city (which appears to be an arms reach away from the pier) while finding a quiet moment in a place lined with peaceful walkways surrounded by natural habitats and gardens. Whether you want a minute of private solace, to stretch your legs with your family and friends, let the kids run around the park, or simply want to take great photos of NYC, Gantry Plaza State Parks provides the location to achieve all of this!
This summer Gantry Plaza State Park becomes the host for the Live at the Gantries festival! This is a series of free, outdoor performances that range from dance troupes and theater to a variety of musical entertainment!
The 2010 season kicks off June 13th.
QCA is proud to be one of the producers for this entertaining and exciting Queens festival!
