Living With Construction

Living With Construction



Looking at construction is not, it’s not my favorite sight but it beats looking at a brick wall.
As New York City’s long awaited subway burrows up Second Avenue and new towers arise on Manhattan’s far west side, some intrepid homebuyers are putting up with perpetual noise and dust for the sake of long-term profit.
I have plenty of Swiffers on hand just in case, umm, and they get used pretty quickly.
Documentary filmmaker Emily Driscoll bought her one-bedroom overlooking the future Second Avenue, 72nd street subway stop in September, 2013.
At 2 a.m I hear all these trucks barreling down and also because of the construction, there’s lots of traffic jams, so I hear lots of honking all the time and people getting very frustrated.
When I looked at this apartment I had already put offers on three other apartments, and each time someone with an all-cash offer came and bought the apartment even though I was in negotiations. Sorry, do you want me to, was that too loud?
While construction zones may be more accessible and sometimes more affordable, amenities can be hard to find in the short-term. That’s the case around the Hudson Yards, a large construction project on Manhattan’s west side.
I had heard of Hudson Yards before but I didn’t really know the extent to which the area was being developed. Right now I think it’s lacking a lot of great neighborhood establishments like restaurants, bars maybe. It’s missing a lot of local character, I guess you would say.
But brokers say, in the long-term, the services will come. Robin and Jeremy Stein, both brokers with Sotheby’s, predict that what’s been happening in their transforming neighborhood, known as Hudson Square, is certain to happen around Hudson Yards.
One of the first signs is you start to see empty storefronts fill in with small boutiques or little cafés or tiny restaurants. Clearly the more new development or rental construction that’s going on, you know that more amenities are coming to the neighborhood.
Certainly when you start walking around a neighborhood if you see scaffolding, if you see empty lots, if you see people wrecking garages, that’s a tip-off that something is changing in that neighborhood. You know, developers will buy garages, they’ll buy parking lots, they’ll buy gas stations and they’ll level them and you know that they’re going to look to try and sell them.
With the recent completion of the High Line and the coming extension of the Seven Train, it’s not surprising former Mayor Bloomberg dubbed this cacophonous pit, Manhattan’s Gold Coast.
It was definitely a great thing to know that values in this area will be going up.
