Long Island City is the western-most neighborhood of the borough of Queens in New York City. Historically, it was one of the three cities whose approval was needed to create the City of Greater New York. Long Island City is the eastern terminus of the Queensboro Bridge, also known as the 59th Street Bridge, which is the only non-toll automotive route connecting Queens and Manhattan. Long Island City was once home to many factories and bakeries, some of which are finding new uses. The former Silvercup bakery is now home to Silvercup Studios, which produces notable works such as HBO's The Sopranos. The Silvercup sign is visible from the 7 Train going into and out of Queensboro Plaza. Long Island City is also home to: P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center SculptureCenter The Academy of American Studies Frank Sinatra School of the Arts Aviation High School Information Technology High School International High School Middle College High School Newcomers High School Robert F.
