It wasn’t that long ago when I would walk by Long Island City in Queens and the only skyscraper around would be, what seemed at the time, a very odd place to put a Citibank building. There was nothing but old beat up buildings, warehouses and remnants of a time when the area was an industrial hub. Fast forward to present day and some of those industrial building were repurposed into lofts, schools, offices and many demolished. What now takes up that space is a construction boom of skyscrapers. You can’t walk a block without seeing a new building go up. Long Island city is truly becoming a sister city right across the river from Manhattan. Claim your condo now because this is where the action is at in Queens.
