DAILY NEWS --Woodside, Jackson Heights, Elmhurst become more desirable neighborhoods
February 7, 2014
Young professionals and families moving further into Queens as they are priced out of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Long Island City and Astoria
Call it Long Island City East.
As city housing prices soar higher than the waterfront towers rising in Long Island City, more young professionals and families are moving into nearby Woodside, Jackson Heights and Elmhurst, real estate experts told The News.
“People are following the subway lines,” said Michael Tortorici, vice president of the brokerage firm Ariel Property Advisors. “Prices are pushing people to explore areas of the city they wouldn’t previously consider.”
