Great satisfaction was expressed by
real estate, owners when tho assessment
books were opened for Queens nml it was
found that of the $21,003,817 Incroaso In
valuations nlnoty-nltio per cent. is on
new buildings. This fact was commented
on throughout that borough whero ono of
the biggest developments In ltn history
has been under war during tho pant few
months. It wild that In levying the
assessment the assessors took Into no
oount the many newly pared strecta,
the regulating, grading and the laying
of sldowalks and building of sewers which
will have to lx paid for by assessment on
the adjoining property owners, and In
oonsequenoe land values were left at
their former rates. This consideration
will give dovolopors a chance to put their
property Into the market without the
announcement of Increased taxation.
Borne idea of the manner In which
Queens Is forging ahead can lie obtained
from the following table, which gives tho
assessment by ward, together with the

Owing lo t lie fart that "Id I-nig Inland
City, now the l'irst ward of Queens, is
considered the manufacturing district
of that Itorough it shows tho largest
percentage of increase in ussessod valua
tions, although it is credited with the
lowest number of new buildings.
The Fourth ward, which includes tho
Richmond Hill ami .lamaiea districts,
continues to bo the highest assessed ward
in Queens, and this is duo to the great
number of tine residences which liave
been erected in Hichinoud Hill, Kew (Jar

Some idea of the automobile industries
that are locating in Ixmg Island City can
be obtained from the following figures

The tremendous advances In the value

Indicated in the amount of the claims

In the claims, represents an increase of
100 per cent., n somewhat excessive es

Only a small part of the property In
this triangle Is to be acquired by the
city. Ashland place, a street of no par

tho new subway Is to run. Tho ad

Is Pulton street, carrying a grent part
of the traffic that crosses Brooklyn

direct approach to tho Manhattan Bridge,
also the Long Island depot, Atlantic
avenue, and Its car lines, while within
a block or two are the stations of the
old subway, the now subway stations
and tho elevated railroad etntlons. All

In the history of building construction
it is doubtful whether any one typo of

widespread success as the new studio
