From the Daily News:
Neighbors gossip when a newcomer moves onto their block, but rarely does a community react with the type of buzz that has accompanied Dominic Stiller's arrival in Dutch Kills.
The 45-year-old engineer is believed to be the first to move into new housing in the industrial patch of Long Island City since 1961, when the city barred new homes in favor of manufacturing.
Civic leaders are so elated by Stiller's planned move - the result of a recent zoning switch - that they sent out a news release last week hailing a "milestone in their decades-long battle."
They feel it signals an end to a half-century when Dutch Kills kept out new homes like Stiller's and witnessed an influx of auto body shops and car dealers.
"Hopefully he's as happy as we are to see him," said Jerry Walsh, 59, the president of the local civic association and a 34-year Dutch Kills resident.
Curbed has more.
Wonder if this is "new house" is Queens Crap or something more interesting.
