IS LONG ISLAND CITY PLAYED OUT?

Where's the guy with the inside scoop?

Where’s the guy with the inside scoop?

SO, the annual LIC Partnership Real Estate Breakfast took place this morning.  There is not a lot to share.  While it’s still a great event to network at and meet the big local RE players – many of whom were in attendance, the presentation and panel were a little stale.  Now in fairness, I’m not sure there’s much meat left on the bone in terms of the LIC transformation.  At this point we can tangibly see a lot of the growth, and that which is on the drawing boards has already been revealed.  Furthermore, there are few, if any, undiscovered gems, as most landowners are aware of what’s going on, some a little too optimistically.

Real estate recaptures the headlines this week.  Notably the LIC Partnership held it’s 11th Annual Real Estate Breakfast this morning.  I’ve noted before how it’s always a sold out crowd, and how it’s become more about networking1 than knowledge, as the rest of the city/planet has caught up with the Long Island City phenomenon since I first started reporting on this event four breakfasts ago.  Thus it’s largely a victim of its own success.
