Hunter's Point South - New neighborhood in Long Island City New York

Hunter's Point South


Hunter's Point South is located on the waterfront of Long Island City in the borough of Queens in the city of New York. It is a newly developing neighborhood with high -rise apartments, an incredibly beautiful park and unobstructed views of the world famous New York skyline. Just one stop away from Manhattan on the NYC subway, or 5 min by cab over the Queensboro Bridge and through Queens Plaza, it is literally a stone’s throw away from the magnificent Manhattan skyline.

With the $66 Million dollar Hunter's Point South Park already opened,  and two of the seven proposed high-rises over 35% complete, there is mounting excitement about the prospects for this community.  Already city officials are expecting the application period for rental of the units currently under construction to  start  as early as the first quarter of

 2014. Information regarding the application process can be found here

Regarding the Hunter's Point South Park, it currently sits on a mere 5.5 acres of land, but will ultimately grow to over 17 acres in size on completion, covering along with its sister Gantry Plaza State Park no less than one mile of riverfront in Long Island City.

As plans emerged over the last few years to develop a new and exciting Long Island city waterfront community, a decision was taken to create a new park along the waterfront. The brownfield environment  that then existed was replaced by this beautifully designed park that could be described as another  ‘jewel on the East River’.

For visitors, Hunter's Point South Park is an extraordinary place that marries the majestic New York skyline to the East River peacefulness and tranquility. The park now sits like an oasis of serenity for park goers in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the greatest city in the world. 

For residents, the surrounding area of Hunter's Point Park is quickly being developed as a prime New York neighborhood, with high-rises sprouting from the Park’s  borders, to offer amazing views of the park, the East River and the New York Skyline. It’s a truly breathtaking package. Small wonder that thousands of New Yorkers are already flocking to the area to make it home..

With the advent of a growing residential community and the influx of more and more visitors, the arrival of the business community at Hunter's Point  Park is also in full stride. To this end, a slew of new restaurants have already emerged, some on the waterfront itself and many others on Vernon Boulevard, just two blocks away. Nightlife is also coming alive with a few dance and comedy clubs springing up in the area.

In addition to businesses, there are many other compelling community projects underway. In this regard, at least three new schools are under construction and a uniquely designed public library that promotes community is also being built on the waterfront.
