I've lived in Flushing for a few years now and I've always been around it. I want to know why there are so many crazy, mentally ill people in Flushing. I want to know why there are so many crackheads. Why does Flushing suck so badly? I heard it used to be much poorer. And I am talking about only a certian section of Flushing, I know some sections are much better and much richer.

^^^ What part of Flushing are you talking about? Flushing is a HUGE area of North-Central Queens. If you mean the downtown area, I only see some homeless people around Main St. There is also the Bland Houses close to College Point BLVD. there is some crime in that area, but not enough to give the whole Downtown area a bad name. I know Sanford Ave., can be a little bad at times, but that is all the way down.

Any where there are projects there are problems. My son at 21 yrs old was shot in the head in Bland Houses Elevator on Halloween, my only child. 2011 at 5 pm ... projects will always bring problems in the community . My world has been torn apart... Best advise , stay away and let them kill each other

I'm hearing that 2 bedrooms at skyview is going for around high 800s to mid 900s in the presale for the mid to low scale building. They expect the couple of hundred apts to sell out. Me personally I'm a detached house guy and apts are like girls with skinny butts. So nothing I smoke would make me want to buy them.

They just reported half of the new development is sold out.

Onex Real Estate Partners held an “exclusive preview event” in which they released listings for 120 apartments at the first tower, dubbed “Grand One.” This is where things got crazy — as Michael Dana, President of Onex, puts it: “The event drew a tremendous response from attendees — many of whom already own in Sky View Parc — and resulted in our team selling out of our limited initial release in only six hours.” (In case you needed reminding, the first phase of Sky View Parc was the number one condo sale site in New York in 2013 due to an influx of Chinese buyers after the recession.) Prices on the studio, one- two- and three-bedroom units range from $489,000 to over $2,000,000. Square footage ranges from 492 to 1,965 square feet.
