FROM Long Island City
Jeff is a New York City Public School Teacher who has lived in Western Queens since 2011. In his spare time, he loves to explore all that New York has to offer, but scoffs at the notion that New York is just “the city” (Manhattan). He loves showing people the hidden gems of the outer boroughs and how the “bridge and tunnel” folks live. One of his favorite items to explore is the ever-changing dynamic of change and gentrification that is occurring across most neighborhoods.
Discover how Long Island City went from a sleepy farm town, to manufacturing hub, to a commercial, residential and artistic “it” community.
