Flushing Queens NYC next new thing ?

Amid the crush of Main Street in Flushing, Queens — a highly trafficked strip considered by locals as one of the neighborhood’s main arteries — the sounds of active construction from nearby developments add a buzzing pitch.

Yet as buzzy as it may be, the area’s volume is likely to rise even further as a slate of new area projects come into the pipeline.

Take the mixed-use building dubbed Tangram — a 39th Avenue structure developed by local heavy-hitter F&T Group — now in the excavation phase.

Or consider the 5,500-square-foot, six-unit building nearby at 41-14 Haight St., which was recently approved by the Department of Buildings. Once completed, it will stand five stories and include a healthcare facility and daycare center, records show.

If you thought bustling residential development in Queens was limited to Long Island City, it’s time to widen your scope. Builders are also targeting Flushing — the farther-flung home to New York’s second-largest Chinatown.

This one will last long after the last hipster leaves NYC even if there's no mention in english media and no need for any new hottest neighborhood labels. Lots of white collar Asians buying in Flushing nowadays with large down payments, though mostly in the new higher end condos. The land where Macys sits on was recently leased for $1 billion for 99 years and that's just for the land with a two story building on top.

Seriously? From when I lived there most Asian Americans prefer to buy in Bayside and drive to flushing for commerce. The majority of buyers in flushing were overseas Chinese looking to store their cash in apartments. The old run down apartment building had many middle to lower class FOB chinese who bought into co-ops and would not be able to afford bayside.

I live in Bayside dude, and the reason is I grew up near the border of Bushwich and hate living in crowded areas in apartments and/or attached homes. I much prefer a single family detached house over an apartment where I can work on my cars, do some gardening, and etc, but still want to be able to walk to restaurants and have access to great schools hence most of NJ/LI was a no go for me. But h1Bs or former H1Bs nowadays don't like to buy houses cause it's a hassle. Know a doctor, finance professionals, software engineers that brought in skyview. But I was told by some of them that there's lots of young kids there living by themselves that seemingly don't have to work yet can put down hundreds of thousands of dollars in down payment or outright pay cash. Also a lot of elderly Asians that might have downsized living there.

Flushing is right next to LGA, if you don't mind listening to airplanes landing every 30 seconds, all day, every day, for 20 hours a day, than this is the hood for you.
