Appropriately Scaled

Queens Crossing - Flushing, New York

Queens Crossing – Flushing, New York

I’ve been critical of the overly cluttered, sign-festooned facades of many of Flushing’s stores. It’s visually overwhelming and adds to the noise of living in New York City. Occasionally, however, there are buildings that I appreciate. Even modern ones that are appropriately scaled to match the surrounding structures.

Queens Crossing is one of these. I find it attractive and appears of sufficient quality. This six-story building matches the height of the 90+ year old structures across the street.

I like that it’s not a plain box. Setbacks and a gentle curve add character to a modern building — something you don’t often see in value-oriented developments. You can tell the developers put more effort into this building than the typical Flushing stores.
