For close to a century, J. Josephs & Sons Co. has sold furniture and appliances out of three storefronts on Manhattan Avenue in northern Greenpoint. Now, the shops and their distinctive metal signage will bite the dust for a new apartment building at 1056 Manhattan Avenue.
The residential, mid-rise street wall around McCarren Park in northern Brooklyn is receiving its latest addition as the six-story apartment building at 544 Manhattan Avenue nears exterior completion. Permits indicate Nicholas Notias of Flushing-based Neptune Mechanical, LLC as the owner and the firm also serves as the construction manager. LMW Engineering Group, LLC is also involved with the project.
Long Island City is hot. If you want one gauge of how hot, consider that YIMBY has written close to two dozen stories about or involving Long Island City just this year.

We last checked on the condominium development at 172 Madison Avenue, at the northwest corner of East 33rd Street in Midtown East, only two weeks ago.
