Long Island City has been one of those segments of the New York City real estate market that has quietly experienced fairly broad consumer acceptance in a short period of time. This is evidenced by the large level of purchase activity over the past several years in response to new development efforts. As a result, residential support services are entering the market at an impressive pace.
Located in Queens, Long Island City has signifiant linkage to Manhattan. The new residential condominium developments in Long Island City are generally selling for roughly half the price per square foot of similar product in Manhattan and yet is only a few minutes away from Manhattan via subway. (That’s how I plan to get there tonight.)
At 6:30 this evening, Dottie Herman , CEO of Prudential Douglas Elliman  and I will first speak at The Powerhouse Condominium  and then at 7:30 we will speak at L Haus Condominium  to the brokers attending the event. Her firm’s New Homes Development Group  is handling the marketing of both developments plus a nearby property that is already being marketed called The Foundry  and they are included in the event as well.
Should be fun.
