Halo is located at 44-41 Purves Street on the northeast side of Long Island City’s Hunters Point District, just a couple blocks from the 7, E, M, R, and G trains. A mere ten-minute commute to Midtown from the Queens Plaza and Court Street stops, the locale also offers access to the highly efficient NY Waterway and NY Water Taxi services. Weekend in the Hamptons? Avoid the headache of heading all the way up to Penn Station and depart from the LIRR Hunters Point Long Island City Terminal instead.
Once home to LIC’s elite bankers and elected officials during the 19th Century, today the Hunters Point Historic District includes a unique juxtaposition of original 1800s brownstones, charming cobblestoned streets, and polished modern high-rises. Prominent art galleries and quaint shops add to the local charm.
Home to multiple galleries and one of city’s most relevant art spaces, MoMA’s PS1, it’s easy to see why LIC has become such a city destination in recent years. Locals and tourists alike flock to the area year round, with fantastic restaurants to indulge the pickiest of foodies, and celebrated art galleries weaved all throughout the neighborhood. Enjoy live performances at The Creek & the Cave, scour for unique finds at LIC Flea & Food, and maximize your summer agenda with weekly “warmup” parties inside PS1’s massive courtyard.
Surrounded by booming culinary and arts scenes, Halo is mere minutes away from a vast array of fantastic eateries, galleries, and practical conveniences. Local haunts include Dutch Kills and The Baroness—both housed inside beautiful speakeasy-style dwellings circa the early 1900s—and the list goes on and on.
