The NY Times reports with evident awe that a 1,000-foot tower may replace the building Junior's now inhabits. That could be close to 100 stories filled with new residents.

They also describe the ongoing incredible buiilding boom in Downtown Brooklyn:

* Some 33 new apartment buildings have risen recently Downtown, with 5,351 apartments,
* Another 11 are under construction and 16 are in development, with an expected 12,500 units.
* The 515-foot Brooklyner, a 414-unit tower opened in 2010.
* 388 Bridge Street, completed this year with 378 apartments, is 590-feet tall.

They don't mention the similar explosion in development in DUMBO and the new towers going up in Brooklyn Bridge Park and Brooklyn Heights.

 Question: Is this the time to close Long Island College Hospital?
