The Court Square Civic Association (CSCA) is a local civic group in LIC that was formed in 2015, largely in response to the rapid development taking place in the Court Square and Queens Plaza. With most of the neighborhood allowing “as-of-right” development, little consideration needed to be made to the overall livability of the neighborhood. This realization prompted both new and old residents to join together and advocate for holistic development, that takes into account crucial infrastructure such as transportation, green space, and schools, as well as neighborhood character defining factors such as cultural institutions and businesses.


Industry Gymnastics was born out of the desire to create a nurturing and warm “home” where kids and adults are inspired to learn gymnastics.

We consider our “home” a place where you can connect with your community, make new friends, challenge yourself and learn some pretty cool gymnastics.
