"Look at where Long Island City was a few years ago. Not many people knew it was there. Today, we're at a tipping point for this neighborhood where growth could go from steady to exponential."
Not many people knew it was there? Um, what? Are you talking about just among your friends in the ivory tower?
Exponential growth, eh? And has infrastructure been upgraded to accommodate this? No.
LIC may also be getting fan-muffling equipment. See, not one of our genius city planners or the administration's favorite developers thought a noisy fan would be an issue if the area became residential, so now we're scrambling to fix it.
Why is everything so ass backwards in this city?
