Queens, NY Sholom & Zuckerbrot Realty LLC (S&Z) has been appointed exclusive leasing agent for three contiguous industrial buildings in Long Island City, totaling 101,000 s/f, with access to the Long Island Expressway the Queens Midtown Tunnel, and the 59th St. Bridge, according to the Long Island City-based industrial and retail property brokerages.
The leasing team will consist of S&Z partners John Ritter and Lawrence Smith, and newly hired leasing and sales associate Michael Deutsch.
The three properties, formerly occupied by Linear Lighting, are situated a few blocks from the Van Dam Street entrance to the L.I.E. and the Midtown Tunnel. LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy airports are both less than a half-hour’s drive. The #7 subway train is 3 blocks north on Queens Blvd., and the M67 bus line to Midtown is a block away.

They also can be great locations for service industries focused on Midtown Manhattan.”
