The Queens Plaza located in the Hunters Point neighborhood of Long Island City, Queens is a 10 story residential condominium building completed in 2004. The building offers 66 one and two bedroom residences in a convenient location that is changing rapidly and expanding into a cultural center. The neighborhood of Hunters Point has recently experienced a revitalization due to the presence of the Contemporary Arts Center.

Queens Plaza is easily accessible by a myriad of subways and buses, making it just minutes away from midtown Manhattan. The area has been said to be known as a new Dumbo, which is a sought after neighborhood in Brooklyn.

The area of Hunters Point has a deep history, and was first incorporated into the city of Long Island City on May 4, 1870, along with several other surrounding areas. Because of its geographical area on the peninsula surrounded by waterways Hunters Point became a highly industrialized area during the 19th century. Industrialization declined in the area in the 1970s and 1980s, leaving many abandoned warehouses and factories. The area now is an exciting, up and coming neighborhood with a historic charm.
