I would support this if it was a real promise for rents that are truly and permanently affordable for all residents, not just rich kids.

What is the timeline for this project?

Hi, Monica. We're expecting the plan to enter the city's public review process later this year, with construction beginning in 2023 if it's approved. The first phase could be complete as soon as 2025.

No. Stay out of our neighborhood. I can barely afford rent as it is. Please don’t destroy this great neighborhood, nobody needs another Williamsburg.

In addition to supporting Astoria's existing shops and restaurants, what types of new retail and entertainment would you like to see?

Bars, restaurants, coffee shops, museums, fashion, stationary, home. All mom and pop shops - no chains!

How important is it that new development includes open space, such as lawns, playgrounds, dog runs and places to sit?

Very important. We need to take back the streets and create common spaces for everyone!
