East Island City is a neighborhood in western Dukes, Liberty City. It is bordered to the north by Walton Lane, Harrison Street, and the East Borough Bridge and to the northwest by Yorktown Avenue (Steinway); Franklin Street to the west (the Humboldt River); Hooper Street and Livingston Street to the south (Cerveza Heights); and San Jacinto Avenue to the east (Meadows Park).

Character

East Island City is a primarily industrial zone with pockets of urban areas. The western part of the neighborhood is dominated by the Dukes portion of the East Borough Bridge, which terminates in EIC, and features a number of warehouses. The Humboldt River promenade, linking Dukes Park in BOABO, Broker, and Steinway Park in Steinway, Dukes, runs through a tunnel underneath EIC in this area. The center of the neighborhood is home to even more warehouses, as well as repair shops and small grocery stores. Brownstones are present in the eastern portion, which is also the location of most the neighborhood's attractions and commercial businesses.

Points of interest

The neighborhood is home to the National Union of Contemporary Arts (NUCA) at P. 45, near the intersection of Hancock Street and San Jacinto Avenue, as well as the LC24 Tower, across the street from NUCA. Both areas are in the northeast extension of the neighborhood. A police precinct can be found at the intersection of Livingston Street and Bunker Hill Avenue. There is also Silverback Studios, a parody of Silvercup Studios.

Influences

East Island City is based on the New York City neighborhood of Long Island City in Queens.

Transport

The Liberty City Subway has a stop at the intersection of Dukes Boulevard and Morris Street (at the border with Steinway); however, it is under construction, so it is not in service. The closest in-service LTA station is Huntington Street, in Cerveza Heights.
