NYC Street Scene

Think of The Local as your New York home.  We’re your best friend in New York but you get to sleep in stylish and clean bunk rooms instead of on our couch.  Our fridge is always stocked, we always know what’s happening, and we’ve been waiting all year for your visit.  We’re the newcomers to the edgy LIC neighborhood in Queens.  Our skyline views are the best and we’re just a couple of subway stops from Manhattan and Brooklyn.  Our neighbors are artists, gymrats, actors, and mechanics.  The city never sleeps but sometimes we like to.

When you stay with us, you’re local

Lee comes from Chicago but has since lived in Philadelphia, Manhattan (Battery Park City), Barcelona, Paris, and now LIC.  She speaks Spanish and you can put her French and Catalan to the test.  She is always on the hunt for a killer cocktail and looks forward to sharing her favorite spots with you.



Lauren’s roundabout journey to LIC has included Chicago; Washington, DC; Chile, London, Hong Kong, Milan, Barcelona, and Philadelphia.  She’s a woman of the world and quick with neighborhood advice.  If you’re looking to eat the best of anything, get Lauren’s attention.  She speaks Spanish and can fake it pretty well in French, Italian, and Catalan.  Just try her.
