LIC Real Estate Breakfast (virtual event) @ Online event- free to attend with optional donation

Long Island City Partnership’s Annual Real Estate Breakfast is the leading real estate event in Western Queens. For 14 years, we have brought together sold out crowds of leaders in real estate, finance, and the LIC community to discover current projects underway in LIC. For photos of last year’s event, please visit licqns.com/REB2019ALBUM.

After much thought and to ensure the safety of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to host this year’s event virtually rather than in-person. The event will be free to attend, with the opportunity to support LIC Partnership through an optional donation during registration. Our panel will highlight a mix of residential, commercial, retail and industrial projects, reflecting LIC’s unique blend of uses.

NAZIS AND ME
Written and Performed by David Lawson
Hate groups have always been a part of David Lawson’s life, from being a child fearful of a Nazi march, witnessing vandalism and bomb threats at the Jewish Community Center.
