Queens Real Estate Information
Astoria and Long Island City (part 1)

Providing the spectacular views of Manhattan's looming skyline, Long Island City is known as a waterfront industrial complex that also hosts a surprising variety of artistic communities and educational institutions.

Who's moving to Astoria? The answer used to be Greeks, Italians, Yugoslavians, Arabs, Moroccans, Colombians, Cubans, and Puerto Ricans. "They don't come anymore," says Steve Valiotis, the owner of Alma Realty. "Astoria now gets the overflow from Manhattan." L.I.C., on the other hand, is a story of dreams deferred. In the past few years, dot-com mania drove the conversion of industrial buildings into office space, and illegal live-work lofts quietly multiplied, with artists moving over to live near the expanded P.S. 1 art museum, which was revamped two years ago and now draws crowds for events like the summer D.J. series. But the late-eighties gambit of placing a huge glass Citicorp skyscraper over the E-train stop didn't make it any less of a low-rise warehouseland. Somehow, "Cyber City" and "NewHo" never materialized.

The Sopranos and Sex and the City were born at L.I.C.'s Silvercup Studios, and if studio head Stuart Suna has his way, Queens will become Hollywood East. Silvercup nearly doubled in size in 1999 and plans to expand even more. "Every day you see somebody," says Ted Kouris, owner of Metropolis International Realty. "You see Woody Allen, you see Al Pacino, you see Robert DeNiro. Most people don't recognize them because they’re all immigrants. Pacino could walk around and no one would recognize him."
