I don't know why I always get Long island confused with Staten island.

 

Long Island City is not Long Island. Brooklyn and Queens are physically on Long Island, but when people say "Long Island" they almost always mean only Nassau and Suffolk Counties.

LIC is an interesting choice, but it's already in the middle of an absolute explosion of development right now.  My office is in Astoria and I pass through LIC every day, and the amount of owrk that's gone up in the last five years is incredible.

 

Still wondering when the south Bronx sees the same kind of gentrification/redevelopment that happened in Brooklyn, midtown west, and LIC.

it's gonna be awhile before The South Bronx sees any gentrification... too far from Manhattan i suppose. But anything is possible.

more gentrification for LIC

 

Is there even room for more gentrification there? I lived there for about four years out of college and it was pretty gentrified then and got even MORE gentrified after I left. A company I worked for in Manhattan just moved there last year.

Maybe it's from the German version of the Wikipedia article?

New York City is a great place to visit, and to live outside of, but I would never live there. I've been in NYC's proximity to one degree or another my whole life and not once have I ever felt the need to live there. Also too many streets/sidewalks and metro/subway stations smell like piss. 

 

The fact that Philadelphia has been on the rise this last decade to the point that some NYC'ers are calling Philadelphia "the sixth borough" is a bunch of horseshit though. They looked down on us forever but now because Philly has become awesome they want a piece? 

 

I don't think so. :p

Jersey City and Hoboken share the 6th borough title for a while now.

 

I think that's much fairer to say. Also those places are thankfully outside the city and affordable.

So if the city gets half a headquarters, do Amazon get half the tax breaks?  

 

The good news is that the commute to LIC from North New Jersey isn’t easy so I hope the impact is minimal for us.

I just want to know what Richmond promised Bezos to land this thing.

That HQ2 would be its own nation state?

Even without Amazon, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments estimated that the region needs to add 235,000 housing units by 2025 to keep pace with expected job growth. Amazon’s arrival could push the goal above 267,000, according to a recent analysis by the Urban Institute. Right now it is on pace to add about 170,000 new units by 2026.

Per WaPo 

 

Lol you boned NoVA. Hopefully the state gets the HSR from Richmond so that some crazy people can commute there and Richmond gets the benefits with fewer of the downsides.
