Long Island City has been experiencing a major transformation for quite sometime now, even before a certain tech giant became momentarily interested in the neighborhood.
Ever since its 2001 rezoning, thousands of apartments have been added to the Queens enclave, making it the city’s fastest growing neighborhood. (If you look at this before and after photos, you’ll see the stark difference in the area’s skyline over the course of ten years.)
Part of a massive city-led megaproject, Hunters Point South, new affordable residences and a new waterfront park have been added to the neighborhood over the past years. But that megaproject has recently entered its second phase, which means several other developments are currently in the works.
