The NY Times would like you to consider living in Corona, where the ubiquitous presence of moving vans is considered a good thing.
The residential streets north and south of Roosevelt Boulevard, which are quieter than Corona Plaza, are a patchwork of old homes and new construction. “A lot of the houses were wood-framed houses on a large piece of property,” said Richard Italiano, District Manager for Community Board 4. “They’ll take that down, and where you had one or two families, they’ll put up two- and three-family homes.”
...Sandeep Shrivastav, a broker at Century 21 Laffey Associates, says developers might pay more just to knock a house down. “If zoning allows for four or five families,” he said, “it could go for $1 million something, and the developer will build multifamily dwellings.”
Wow, point me to my cash cow now!
