Where can I find/buy/build the light-industrial warehouse bat cave I want to build out for my new wife and myself -- and hopefully soon, our brood. I'm thinking big garage door(s)... 2-3 stories, mostly empty on ground floor for workshop/rock-out-space... with one or more Rocio Romero pre-fab boxypod stacked on the roof. See attached rough sketch I made last year based on an LIC building. But LIC now seems totally fucked from a RE value perspective, with all these condos popping up everywhere. Where do you think I can do a project like this in NYC on the cheap-ish? While still being on a major subway line for daily commute, and in a neighborhood one can live in, safely and ideally quietly, with wife and kids etc.
