I remember LIC pre-residential tower boom, when it was just a bunch of auto mechanic yards and strip clubs. Like many things that have happened in NYC over the past 20 years, the pace of change is shocking.

Yes indeed....when we first moved here we were on Jackson Ave and one the tallest buildings on Jackson Ave in Hunter's Point. Now it's dwarfed by everything else. We now live on Center Blvd (40 story building) with the best view of Manhattan. Not looking to leave anytime soon but we'll need to see how things play out over the next couple of years with everything that's still developing.
