Not surprised to see LIC, Queens as #1. That whole neighborhood has been a giant construction site for the past few years, with nothing but new high rises.

I knew Williamsburg was up there too but I didn't expect it to be ahead of Downtown BK.

The listings start at 2010 and Williamsburg saw the boom far earlier. There's a lot more construction in downtown BK in the last few years, but there wasn't the same kind of fervor in 2010 by a long shot. Of the 9 skyscrapers currently under construction in Brooklyn, downtown Brooklyn has four of them (including a supertall), North Brooklyn (Greenpoint and Williamsburg) have three and the far south of Brooklyn have two (Russian oligarch money!).

With North Brooklyn, LIC, and downtown Brooklyn booming, the G train is going to get real busy.

Yes the G train is going to become much more important. Maybe we will see higher frequencies or at the very least full-size trains.

I didn't know South BK was getting skyscrapers too. That's kind of crazy. I'm having a hard time picturing that.

I still can't even believe Brooklyn's getting a skyscraper taller than the Chrysler building.

Get that sweet oligarch money. One of the two is being built on freddy trump land, so if you got the connects, let them know now.

Or Miami.

It's all about the sizes of the geographic areas used...some are neighborhoods, some are large swaths of city.

Seattle made the #12 spot (Broadway) and the #16 spot (Lake Union) so it almost made the top 10.

Miami's neighborhoods do tend to be small geographically. Plus, much of Miami's new housing stock in its core is condo, not rental. Even then, I find it really hard to believe that no single Miami neighborhood cracked the top 50. Something isn't adding up

With the Loop in the top 20, I kinda expected to see one of Chicago's other downtown neighborhoods like River North in the top 50 as well. None of them made it though, which means the rest of the city certainly wasn't even close then considering how much of the large developments happen downtown.
