Building Continues in Long Island City Despite Amazon

Hershey Farms?

Must all news in Long Island City continue to be framed by Amazon?  Sadly yes, at least for the next few months.  Life goes on, though somewhat drearily (and cold), as does building.  The Court Square Blog updates us on two super-large towers coming to Court Square and Queens Plaza respectively.  Like the flowers weeks away, they are starting to spring from the earth.  One will be 78-stories and the other 63.  Both will be taller than the Citi Building when they top out, at which time we’ll probably be referencing Spring 2020, though hopefully not Amazon.

      Projected by Amazon, over many years, if you think you can trust them and want 25,000 developers moving here from out of town.

        You’re right. We shouldn’t trust anyone and should turn our backs on any change at all. Maybe we should tear all the buildings down built in the last 10 years and abandon plans to build anymore. Forget change and forget this website that tracks how LIC changes day to day. Sounds good.
