The Miami-sounding Casa Vizcaya in Long Island City was born during the boom and racked up some pretty impressive sales, including a $2 million penthouse. It might also be falling apart! How did we learn this? Exactly how you think: through a photo caption on the Facebook page of a state senator. The photo above, posted today on the wall of Sen. Michael Gianaris, is labeled: "With the 24 families of Casa Vizcaya at Hunter's Point. Their homes have severe infrastructure problems and I am helping them get the developer to respond and fix the problems." Which begs the question: Shouldn't these people be running for their lives, not standing around smiling?
