Commerce and economy

Long Island City was once home to many factories and bakeries, some of which are finding new uses. Long Island City's turn-of-the-century district of residential towers, called Queens West, is located along the East River. Redevelopment in Queens West reflects the intent to have the area as a major residential area in New York City, with its high-rise residences very close to public transportation, making it convenient for commuters to travel to Manhattan by ferry or subway. The tallest building in both Queens and Long Island, the 778-foot (237 m) Skyline Tower one block away, was architecturally topped-out in October 2019. The Queensbridge Houses, a public-housing complex, comprises over 3,000 units, make it the largest such complex in North America. The former factory built in 1919 now houses the Jim Henson Company, Society Awards, and a commercial rooftop farm run by Brooklyn Grange. The Standard Motor Products Building was put on the market by Acuman in 2014 and acquired by RXR Realty, LLC for $110 million. The largest fortune cookie factory in the United States, owned by Wonton Foods and producing four million fortune cookies a day, is being converted to residential luxury lofts. The site is now the Noguchi Museum, a space dedicated to his work. The first tower, the 42-floor Citylights, opened in 1998 with an elementary school at the base. Other buildings on the campus originally served as the location of the Ford Instrument Company, which was a major producer of precision machines and devices.

History

Astoria is the primary city name, but also Long Is City, Long Island City are acceptable city names or spellings, Queens on the other hand no longer accepted or obsolete and are no longer used as a designation. The area now known as Astoria was originally called Hallet's Cove (also spelled Hallett's Cove), after its first landowner William Hallet. The area was renamed for John Jacob Astor, then the wealthiest man in the United States with a net worth of more than $40 million, in order to persuade him to invest in the neighborhood. He only invested $500, but the name stayed nonetheless, as a bitter battle over naming the village finally was won by Astor's supporters and friends. During the second half of the 19th century, economic and commercial growth brought increased immigration from German settlers, mostly furniture and cabinet makers. One such settler was Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg, patriarch of the Steinway family who founded the piano company Steinway & Sons in 1853. The family eventually established Steinway Village for their workers, a company town that provided school instruction in German as well as English. Astoria also figured prominently in early American filmmaking as one of its initial centers. That heritage is preserved today by the Museum of the Moving Image and Kaufman Astoria Studios.Astoria and several other surrounding villages, including Steinway, were incorporated into Long Island City in 1870. It remained an independent municipality until it was incorporated into the City of Greater New York in 1898. The city's farms were turned into housing tracts and street grids to accommodate the growing number of residents. The name Astoria is now used to refer to a neighborhood on Long Island, New York.
