We had a discussion quite recently about it. Look up "housing in Queens" or something, I forgot exactly what the name of the thread was. All about oversized single-families.

If you stop to think about it, it's not anyone's business whether people choose to live in large single-family houses or not. Maybe the residents of Whitestone (and neighboring College Point, for that matter) don't want a sea of apartment buildings.

I agree.. not every area of the city needs apartment buildings. Maybe it's more convenient for some people, but it takes away from the character of certain areas.

Whitestone is by far the most beautiful neighborhood I have ever seen. What sets it apart are the gorgeous new mediterranean homes being built there. Nowhere else in the country have I ever seen anything like it. Especially how the far majority of new and remodelled homes in Whitestone are all the same style. It gives the neighborhood such a distinctive feel. Not to mention most homes in Whitestone have meticulously landscaped lawns. Show me a neighborhood like Malba. I dont think there are any. Certainly not with those style houses. Maybe in Portugal, Spain, or Italy but not in the US where idiots think putting siding on their house equates with a stylish reodelling job. Dont try to make this beautiful neighborhood like the rest of nyc. Cramped in dirty apartment buildings and all the scum that goes with it. Have some pride that NYC still has some neighborhoods to be proud of and work to ensure they are preserved.

I think they're trying to downsize the MacMansions going up in North East Queens... 6 family houses? Keep crowded houses in crowded neighborhoods!
