10 Court Square in Long Island City
Long Island City’s Court Square may be experiencing a residential boom, but the area still suffers from a lack of retail development, DNAinfo reported.
More than 3,500 residential units are set to rise in the area over the next five years, and housing prices have shot up by nearly 30 percent in the last three years. But the neighborhood, lacking basic residential amenities such as pharmacies, grocery stores and retail stores, still gives off an industrial vibe, those familiar with the area told DNAinfo. “In this particular neighborhood, past 10 o’clock, it’s sort of a dead zone,” said Hector Medina, who works in the high-rise office tower Court Square Place.
