Before we get to an analysis of the NY Times “Living-In” article from yesterday’s real estate section, I owe all you readers with an interest in the LIC school situation a small apology. It seems that the meeting Wednesday evening may or may not be open to the public. Fear not, for while yours truly will not be attending, I will be getting a full report from someone who is, and will pass all the information gleaned from the meeting on to you. I am not really sure what the agenda of this meeting will be, but I think the idea is to summarize what the options are, and come up with a concrete plan of action to present at a meeting open to all in the very near future. One problem they supposedly ran into was finding a meeting place big enough to accommodate all comers.
And a lot of them there are sure to be, as the NYT article mentions that the final two TF Cornerstone buildings are going to have 820 and 586 apartments respectively. Furthermore, when Hunters Point South is finalized, it will add another 5000 apartments, and the first phase is going to be completed in 2014(in parents speak “The Class of 2032”). All of this is fairly well known data, as should be most of the news in the article. Then again, not everybody is a reader of LICtalk …yet. That’s the way it should be I guess: locals find out first via LICtalk, Manhattan and the rest of the planet after in the New York Times. It is the natural order of things, who am I to question it?
