Long Island City blooms in April. Brighter, warmer days are on the horizon and this beautiful neighborhood is bursting with good energy. Gotham Point Luxury Rentals are the perfect launching pad for your springtime adventures. Located in the western tip of Queens, LIC holds so much opportunity. Here is a list of exciting things to explore in Long Island City in April:
Gantry Park, located only a couple of blocks away from Gotham Point Luxury Rentals, hosts its annual Easter egg hunt and festival on Saturday April 8th with time slots between 10am-12pm divided by age. An event by and for the neighborhood, this is a great event to bring the community together. And who says the kids get to have all the fun? With carnival games and live music, there’s plenty on offer for all ages. If you’re really feeling in the spirit of Easter, there are also opportunities to volunteer and help with the hunt! Learn more here.
The Culture Lab is an important player in showcasing local talent in Long Island City, and features a stacked calendar year round. On April 7th, 14th, and 21st, a NYC musical trio known as the pioneers of the ‘Ambient Country’ genre, will play live concerts at this iconic venue. The group makes vibrant ambient music that captures the immensity of America from a distinctly urban perspective using traditional Americana instruments as well as loops and electronics. Show your support for our local artists, and pencil in SUSS Concert.
The Afterschool Collective, in partnership with Snapology, is bringing LEGO based real world robotics to Long Island City this month. Snapology provides several interactive robotics classes and coding programs for children ages 3-14 using LEGO® bricks. Here, kids can learn all about robotics, gears, sensors, simple machines, and programming when it comes to LEGOs! Encouraging a classroom style approach to teaching and learning, there is an emphasis on group work, which makes for a great opportunity for the kids to meet those in their neighborhood. Classes are available at $75 per person, with a $25 sibling discount, running throughout April from the 5th-26th. Sign up here.
On Friday April 7th, visit the Noguchi Museum and take advantage of free admission. Located in Long Island City, this museum and serene outdoor sculpture garden exhibits an unparalleled collection of Japanese American artist Noguchi’s work. There is a wide array of his pieces including sculptures, drawings, stage designs, architectural models, and so much more. Art is good for the soul.
