As prices continue to skyrocket in Brooklyn and Queens, developers have set their eyes on Staten Island. In the coming years, the borough’s North Shore will undergo a massive transformation, with the arrival of one of the world’s tallest observation wheels; the city’s first outlet mall, Empire Outlets; and hundreds of new apartments.
But the North Shore isn’t the only part of the borough undergoing major changes: In the center of the island, what was once the world’s largest landfill is slowly becoming the 2,200-acre Freshkills Park. The largely neglected New York City Farm Colony and Sea View Hospital campuses are being turned into new developments targeted towards seniors. And a massive planned rezoning effort could bring 2,500 new apartments to the borough in the next decade or more.
Doesn't it suck to be "discovered"?
