This month the Department of Health's 4,000 employees will begin moving into 2 Gotham Center, the 21-story office tower in Long Island City's Queens Plaza that 7-train riders constantly e-mail us about. (Typical query: "What the hell is that glassy new building in Queens Plaza?") The 662,000-square-foot tower, which also has retail space and 180 parking spots, is the first phase of the 3.5-million-square-foot Gotham Center, which is something that might one day exist. Above, a photo of 2 Gotham Center taken last month. Restaurateurs, now you know where your 'C' grades will come from.
