    Thanks for your reply... I am glad to see my thinking is not totally off .


    But to get back on topic of LIC.. has anyone here taken a deeper look into the upcoming properties.. The Gantry, Arris Lofts, Powerhouse or even the Rockrose and Avalon Rentals..

    That's really an incredible number. Most central business districts have less office space than just this one company has in New York.

    It is amazing the sheer space that Citigroup occupies. I believe 10 million square feet of office space translates to roughly the entirety of Cincinnati's CBD.

    I think Citigroup should be commended for not moving backoffice employees to Jersey City like many other New York Financial Services firms did in the late 90's and into post-9/11. Same goes for American Express.

    I commend citibank by having all my banking accounts with them. Im appauled at the fallout of J.P. Morgan Chase Manhattan.

    Well, Citi has a pretty large prescence in NJ as well, just not JC. But, it is great to see them commit to NYC and build up LIC. Too bad more NYC companies don't/haven't followed suit.

    Chase is a disgrace and a train wreck. People are getting RIFed (Reduction In Force) and moved all over the place. Wilmington, DE is booming. Sad. And the amazing part is that Chase BOUGHT Bank One. Bank One was nothing comepared to Chase. Shows what a load and agressive CEO can do.

    My credit card is Citi, but my checking account here is at Chase. I chose to open it there due to every Duane Reade having a Chase ATM. (Although sometimes I cant find a Duane Reade.)

    You don't really think about it, but the Credit Union building shows you how low-rise Queens really is near Manhattan. One can easily see the building being constructed from Manhattan.

    Any cladding yet on that East Coast Tower? I'm curious to see it....
