Speaking of Long Island City, we'd hate for the day to end without us showing you the latest and greatest from the dear folks who brought East Houston Street the glory that is Avalon Chrystie Place I & II. Yesterday, ground broke on Avalon Riverview North. According to specs posted by our pals at QueensWest, the 39-floor tower will offer 602 apartments just a stone's throw from its sister building, the already extant Avalon Riverview. At the speed Avalon builds these things, we expect the Riverview North to be ready for occupancy late next week.
