What we're about
Hurra and welcome, the Long Island City Parents Group is now in its 11th year with over 1000 members!
Since 2007, we have organized play dates, parties, readings, workshops and events. We have advocated for better parks, improved playgrounds, family-sized apartments, and more and better schools.
We are located in Long Island City ("LIC") in the borough of Queens in New York City - the fastest growing neighborhood in the United States for several years running.
We are an economically and ethnically diverse group of parents united by a strong desire to raise our children in an urban environment that is family friendly, that allocates resources and taxpayer's money equally (instead of reserving them for specific geographic areas), and that promotes true diversity (instead of excluding faith-based groups, middle class parents, and political centrists of varying party affiliations).
Membership in our group is limited to parents and their children. Single adults without children are not eligible. Adults not accompanied by their own kids can not attend a Meet-up designed for kids. At the time of your application, your family should reside in the LIC zip-codes 11101 or 11109 or neighboring Astoria, Greenpoint, or Sunnyside.
By joining our group you give us permission to publish all photos taken at any of our events and you agree that you and your kids are attending all meet-ups at your own risk. Hosts and organizers are not responsible for any harm or damages. You, your family, and your guests attend all events at your own risk.
In order to keep this Meet Up safe please do the following within 48 hours of joining:
• post a personal photo
• please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your first and last name, physical address, and the number and age of your children
Commercial messages and events should be sent to email@example.com.
Businesses can become a sponsor of our group.
We hope to meet you in person soon!
