The Newcomers Club of Long Island City was founded in 2009 as part of OurLIC. We are a social club dedicated to making the transition to life in Long Island City easier by providing the opportunity to meet new friends and participate in activities with others who have similar interests. Joining LIC Newcomers is an outstanding way for people to meet other new residents and get together for social, educational and community events.
We can bring you inside and behind the doors in a way that no other service can do, or has ever done.
Members will be able to access the resources of all of the best things that make LIC a good place to live. You will be able to interact online and offline in a way that will bring you together with other residents, and will bring you together with merchants and professionals in the community.
Each new member will receive a LIC Newcomers Club Welcome Gift Basket filled will samples and EXTRA special offers to get you started.
