We know what happened when the city rezoned the Williamsburg waterfront. But have you seen how a similar rezoning has transformed Hunters Point in Queens?
A former industrial area on the waterfront has become a jewel, aka Gantry State Park. The area is also home to The New York Architectural Terra Cotta Works, although its spectacular terra cotta-adorned building is currently shrouded in netting, as the nearby Silvercup Studios is restoring it.
Above, a former metal foundry covered with ivy has been transformed into a place for magazine and video shoots by DuVal Enterprises.
There’s lots more to see — and even a place to get a bite. And a tour of the area is scheduled for this weekend. Read all about it on Brownstoner Queens.
