The New York Times ran an article yesterday about an apartment in Flushing Meadows, a development in Flush Park, Brooklyn, that has been described as the “Boston of Flushing.”
It’s also been described by its developer as “an affordable, attractive and stylish place to live.”
The apartment’s online listing for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment with a view says the building “is set in an old-style mansion-style neighborhood in Brooklyn.”
In the same article, a spokesperson for the developer said that the “buildings design was inspired by the historic Victorian-era mansion of a wealthy family” and that it was intended to provide “a spacious and comfortable living space for both workers and the guests of the property.”
A spokesperson for The Flushing Properties Company, the developers name, said that “the new apartments are not located in the city of Flush Meadows, but are instead in a building adjacent to that district, and we plan to add a larger, contemporary building to replace the current building as well.”
It is unclear how the two apartments will be located.
The apartment complex is currently undergoing renovations, and an article by the Wall Street Journal this week describes how a “young woman” was sleeping in the building.
“There was a man in the bed who was making noise and making a racket, a loud noise.
The man kept going and then he left the apartment, saying he had to go home and that the noise was disturbing him,” the article reads.
“It was like he was in New Orleans, or something,” one resident told the Journal.
The apartment is currently being marketed to a younger demographic than the general population of Flushes apartment, according to the article.
In the article, the residents say that the apartment complex was once a luxury hotel, and that many of the apartments were renovated to accommodate this.
The article says that some residents of the apartment said they “had to move out of their apartments because of noise, noise, and other problems.”
As The Jerusalem News reported last week, Flushing Heights, a neighborhood in the Bronx, has a high concentration of immigrants.
In 2016, a Brooklyn couple who own a luxury apartment complex in Flushes, Queens, and live in their home on a luxury street were reportedly arrested after they allegedly attacked a Hispanic woman who was sleeping on the floor of her apartment.
In the article from the Journal, the owner of the complex, James H. Lautenberger, said, “This is not a crime.
This is a misunderstanding, and it is unfortunate.”
The Queens District Attorney’s Office is currently investigating the assault, and the Queens District Clerk’s Office said in a statement that it would “work with the Queens district attorney’s office and the New York City Police Department to expedite the investigation.”
