A Fine Blog recently spoke with Robert Knakal, Chairman and Founding Partner of Massey Knakal. Here's a sample of the conversation:
Q: Outside of Manhattan, but in the 5 boroughs, which emerging neighborhoods do you see as most promising?
A: I believe that the Bloomberg administration has come up with a very fundamentally sound long range plan for the city. This program calls for increasing development density around transportation hubs throughout the boroughs. This is a common sense approach to development and will enhance the efficiency of those living and working in the City. Given this long term perspective, I would be inclined to invest in areas immediately surrounding mass transportation hubs such as Jamaica in Queens.
Which sounds great plan except that it's hard to fit on the subways as it is. Wait til thousands more units are built and inhabited.
