A survey conducted by Margolin, Winer & Evens LLP found that Long Island real estate professionals believe the new LIRR station under Grand Central and the addition of a third track between Floral Park and Hicksville will have the biggest impact on the island’s real estate property values.
“The pending mass transit improvements, including the Eastside access tunnel and new LIRR station under Grand Central and the addition of a third track between Floral Park and Hicksville, were the top choices of 91 percent of those surveyed to boost real estate values here.
