If 2016 was the year Queens was named the No. 1 tourist destination in the U.S. — thanks Lonely Planet guidebooks, wherever your are — then 2017 will likely be remembered as the year real-estate developers discovered the borough is an awful nice place to live.
From a new airport to a thousands of new apartments in Western Queens and Flushing, building projects in the borough seemed to be taking off at a neck-snapping speed this year. Grab a shovel, if you want to fit in in 2018.
Here are TimesLedger’s best photos of the year, starting with a record-breaking snowstorm, through a picture-pefect summer, to a nervous autumn in the wake of the first, unthwarted terrorist attacks in New York City.
