Has Long Island City Become the Work/Play Hub Some Say It Has?
Mitch Korbey was quoted in Bisnow ahead of its Long Island City State of the Market event, where he provided insight on Long Island City’s dramatic revitalization. Following Former Mayor Bloomberg’s 2001 rezoning of the area, Korbey notes that LIC is still in its formative stages which still has swaths of vacant manufacturing-zoned land. “It’s a solid, growing residential community, but it needs to mature as a live/work community,” he told the publication. “It’s lacking a genuine sense of community or 24-hour life on the street.”
