It's great that the people of LIC marked their noteworthy structures with plaques so that the demolition guys can learn the history of the neighborhood as they tear it down.
The Star Building, which was home to the LIC Daily Star newspaper and is steps from Queens Plaza, is a-comin' down.
And guess what's replacing it? Yes, that's right. Luxury condos like the ones in this cheesy drawing. Is this Queens or the Vegas Strip?
The site has already been shut down once. The developer has submitted a plan for 180 units to further overburden our infrastructure, but so far DOB hasn't approved the plan.
