Permits have been filed for a 12-story mixed-use building at 42-62 Hunter Street in Hunters Point, Queens. Located between 42nd Road and the Ed Koch Queensboro Roadway, the interior lot is one block north of the Queens Plaza subway station, serviced by the E, M, and R trains.

    Huh??? Freeman Street subway station??? 2 and 5 Trains?!?! The picture you posted is smack in the middle of LIC. Do yourself a favor, Vanessa, take this article down, do a little proofreading, and then repost it. I don’t think you want your name associated with the article as it stands now.

    • Sometimes I think Vanessa is Yimby’s bot, based on the really glaring errors.

    • I always thought YMBY was authoritative. The only IRT train that I know of in LIC is the Flushing IRT, which young people (anyone under 50 to me) call the number 7 train.

  2. There are NO subway stops on Freeman Street. And even if there were, Freeman Street is in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, not LIC, Queens. The nearest subways to this project are Queensboro Plaza, Queens Plaza and Court Square, all in LIC and a good two miles (at least) from the nearest stop of the 2 train!

    How can one write about NYC real estate and have zero knowledge of NYC geography?

  3. let’s help Vanessa.
    The lot is 3 blocks southwest of the Queensboro Plaza station serviced by the N, W, 7 trains. It is also 2 blocks southeast of the Queens Plaza station serviced by the E, M, R trains, and 3 blocks north of the Court Square station serviced by the E,G,M,7 trains

    Thanks for the help everyone. It was a human error, I’ll double check my work.

    • Vanessa is fantastic and even perfect writers still make mistakes / I do not like the mean-spirited comments here. !

  5. They took down the houses yesterday

  6. Demolish started last week, and right now they’re just about to wrap up debris removal.

    they’ve also just started building the wooden fence around the lot, which seems to include also 27-20 42nd Rd (which hosted Pulsar Technology Systems) — do you have any news about that?
