A new nine-story residential building at 41-18 43rd Street in Sunnyside has been approved by the Department of Buildings, the Sunnyside Post reported. The new project, which began construction two weeks ago, was reviewed by the agency to ensure it met maximum height limits of 80 feet. It will contain 38 rental units and 17 parking spaces. Separately, a stop work order was issued to developer Hooshang Nemat on May 21 because he lacked a shoring permit, necessary for protecting a building when columns and walls are removed. Construction is expected to resume in the first week of June after a permit is obtained.

Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City, Queens

Both the NY Post and the Village Voice have written about a desire among some to change the name of Long Island City to LIC permanently. Apparently, the name “Long Island City” is bad for real estate, hotels, and morale, according to some in the community. Rob MacKay, head of the Queens Economic Development Corp. Tourism Council (and who also lives in Long Island City), says says, “It puts us out on Long Island, and that’s inaccurate – we are urban and hip.”

Have you ever heard of Nassau Heights in Queens? Today, it’s known as Middle Village. Did you know that Woodside was once called Woodside-Winfield? Welcome to 1940s New York, when the Queensbridge Houses were a new development, and Astoria was a predominately Italian and German neighborhood (the Greek population didn’t peak until the 1970s).

We all know NYC is known for its walkability: the grid makes the city easy to navigate, it’s become much safer in the past few decades, and there’s 24-hour public transportation. But while NYC is most walkable city in the US, Sunnyside and Hunters Point in Long Island City top the charts (ranked 95 of 100) in Queens on Walk Score, a site that ranks cities and neighborhoods based on on-foot access to amenities. For example, can you grocery shop without a car, walk to a nearby park, or is it safe for your kids to walk to school?

Walkable Neighborhoods in Queens_Walk Score Rankings

Next are Jackson Heights (93), Kew Gardens (91), Elmhurst (91), and Ridgewood (90). All of these neighborhoods rank higher than NYC’s average of 85. It’s easy to stay on your feet in these neighborhoods: Sunnyside’s greenmarket is an easy walk from most of the surrounding streets, 15 CSAs abound in the borough, and you can find many yoga and fitness classes near Astoria and Hunters Point. Even though prices are rising for condos in LIC, the Hunters Point neighborhood is poised to be middle-income, family-friendly community.
