Vernon 1, 2, and 3, where modern luxury meets industrial chic design. Townhome residences designed from the ground up, located just moments’ to the Long Island City waterfront’s picturesque Gantry State Park. Each townhouse features six upscale boutique residences ranging from spacious studios duplexes to one-bedroom home office, and two-bedroom Duplexes.
Landscaped rooftop sundecks, complete with built-in grills crown every building, perfect for entertaining and sunbathing. The Vernon Condominiums are nestled along a quiet, tree-lined street just off of Vernon Blvd’s Restaurant row and are just a few blocks from the Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue Station which is one subway stop to Manhattan.
The industrial chic aesthetics of the Vernon Condominiums reflect Long Island City’s industrial past. Formerly a hub for factories and warehouses, Long Island City has been transformed into a residential and commercial community. New York Magazine called it “the Country’s Fastest-Growing Neighborhood,” and it is attracting professionals and families, who are seeking stylish and convenient homes.
Comfort and luxury inspired every thoughtful detail, from the high-end finishes to the soaring ten-foot ceilings. Floor-to-ceiling Pella Windows bathe rooms in natural light. Daikin heating and cooling systems efficiently control temperatures to your comfort zone. Exposed Brick along with Natural wood and oak flooring cozy up spaces with vibrant, warm hues.
Kitchens are outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances from Blomberg and Bosch, elegant quartz countertops and backsplashes from Caesarstone, and stylish Scavolini cabinetry imported from Italy.
Bathrooms are elevated to an indulgent spa-like experience with innovative Grohe shower systems, sophisticated Spanish and Italian tile, and sleek imported vanities.
The Vernon Condominiums are so inviting that you will love exploring the great indoors, but you can unwind and entertain alfresco, too. Every unit features private outdoor terraces or balconies as havens for your relaxation.
Location is everything in real estate, and the Vernons are at the heart of up-and-coming Long Island City. In this neighborhood, industrial buildings have been revamped into art spaces. Upscale skyscrapers are transforming the Queens skyline. Just a quick ride from Midtown Manhattan on the 7 subway line, LIC abounds with exciting options for dining, entertainment, culture, a diversity of parks, playgrounds, daycares, and schools.
Waterfront parks are the jewels of LIC. Featuring the best views of the Manhattan skyline, Gantry Plaza State Park is the ideal setting for relaxing strolls and impromptu picnics. Crowds swell the park for outdoor movie screenings in the summer. The antique Pepsi-Cola sign is an iconic landmark on the Queens waterfront. There’s something fun for everyone at neighboring Hunter’s Point South Park. Children love the playground and lush green spaces. Dogs frolic at the dog run. Runners enjoy spectacular vistas of Manhattan along the waterside promenade. The landscaped railway garden is Hunter’s Point’s answer to the High Line, but with better views.
Just a short walk inland takes you to Vernon Boulevard. Hip eateries and New York City’s only Michelin-starred Mexican eatery along this street serve up delicious cuisine to delight the most discriminating palates. LIC Flea & Food is another local foodie favorite. On weekends from spring through fall, the market draws the finest spread of artisan food vendors and vintage treasures.
With the largest selection of art in NYC outside of Manhattan, Long Island City is flourishing as a top arts and culture destination. Film was one of the first major industries in Queens and the medium is alive and thriving at LIC’s Silvercup Studios. Local film crews frequently shoot outdoor scenes in the neighborhood to capture the quintessential NYC vibe. World-class museums, galleries, sculpture gardens, and performance spaces are featured throughout LIC. MoMA P.S. 1, housed in a repurposed 1890’s public school building, displays three floors of contemporary art. The Obie Award-winning Chocolate Factory Theater presents dance, theater, and interdisciplinary performances.
