If you think that the end is in sight for construction “pollution” in Long Island City, think again. Everywhere you look (and hear and breath) something is being leveled and built from scratch.
At what point will it be enough? Well, if you look at our sister neighborhood, Williamsburg, the answer is probably never. As long as someone is trying to sell their lot off a main road for a billion times more than what they bought it 50 years ago, there will always be developers ready to jump in with all-cash offers for their residential golden geese.
The question is, what will Long Island City look like in 10 years?
