Developers applied to build hundreds of units of affordable housing in Brooklyn and Manhattan through a city program over the course of more than a year but none of them wanted to build in Queens, according to city records.

Because they know when they build 80/20 in Brooklyn, they can charge and GET exorbitant rents for 80% of their apartments.

Queens hasn't gotten enough Starbucks yet.

It's okay. I don't need my neighborhood in Queens to be that hip. As a lifelong New Yorker, I know how to take the subway to a hip neighborhood if I want to do something there. I like the fact that rents have stayed relatively stable compared to all the trendy neighborhoods in Brooklyn.

Queens is already very crowded we don't need more apt complexes.

Wow, my 2nd apartment was on Seventh Avenue next to One Smart Cookie in Park Slope for $325/mo. (1st one was a shared railroad flat on Bleecker and MacDougal with a tub in the kitchen for $825/mo.) It certainly wasn't trendy in 1984! I wonder what that old place is going for these days

How many bedrooms? Probably around $3,000-$4,000/mo.

For that much money I can live in a newly built home in NJ with a pool and big backyard and still see NYC on my horizon.

Dayummm!!!!

It was a railroad flat, starting from the backyard window to front door was living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom off to the side of a long hallway.

I remember waking up to the smells of cookies baking every morning haha

From 14th Street to Wall Street that part of Manhattan is *HOT* in particular the (West/Greenwich) Village right down through Little Italy and into SoHo, Noho and Tribeca. Anyone who isn't well to very well off isn't living down there unless they are in a rent controlled or stabilized apartment.

Yeah, your former apartment would go for *big* bucks in this RS market.
