When, months ago, I scheduled my Long Island City walking tour for May 21 (via the Municipal Art Society), I thought the annual LIC Arts Open would be occurring the previous weekend, in the middle of the month.
Instead, it's a great synchronicity, and an opportunity to see a lot of good art. I encourage visitors to get to LIC early and see some studios before the 2 pm walking tour.
I especially recommend visiting the LIC Art Center on 23rd Street near 44th Avenue, which has a great concentration of studios and is not too far from the starting place for the tour.
