Much like City Island, Throgs Neck and its traditionally middle class Irish and Italian community resisted the abandonment and disinvestment that swept across the Bronx in the ’70s and ’80s. And even as property values have risen in the southeastern Bronx neighborhood, a 2004 rezoning has stunted most new construction.

Staten Island’s North Shore is preparing for four big developments and the 630-foot-tall New York Wheel, which will draw thousands of new residents and a huge influx of visitors to the sleepy industrial waterfront.
