    Parts of Western Queens (besides LIC) have done a really good job fighting the rezoning and having people show up to CB meetings putting their feet down. From Sunnyside out to Jackson Heights there has been so much proposed development that's gotten shut down. The big one is Sunnyside Yards..basically like a Hudson Yards in Queens built over the existing LIRR tracks and huge Amtrak yard. They wanna build a whole new neighborhood over it, and the people in Sunnyside are going ape shyt. I think those areas in Queens, despite being so damn close to the city (depending on where in SunnySide you can get to Grand Central in less than 15 mins) are going to be slow to gentrify only because there is still a big working class contingent there, and a large selection of them are single family home owners and co-op owners who want to preserve what they have. Everyone saw what happened in LIC and said "not here"...

    Idea being pitched is having private management companies come in and manage different developments ( 60,000 apartments )

    If a recession comes, how much are we expecting apartment prices in Manhattan to drop?
