Angelina Lucheux: aesthetician extraordinaire and owner of Tailormade For You Skincare
"The thing about Long Island City is, you have these original owners who have been her forever. My old landlord bought his building when he immigrated from Italy, and the neighborhood still has that very old fashioned kind of tightness feeling. Through the evolution of Long Island City that feeling has stayed as a foundation. You have old people and you have new people and it’s nice. I feel very safe here"
"I think I'm fairly intuitive to these kinds of things. I saw that it would be happening a very long time ago. I used to work on 57th Street in the city and when I’d be driving through here at night, you just kind of felt, ‘It can't stay like this forever’. It was only a matter of time. I mean who wouldn't want to be here with the skyline like that and open area to build and be able to make money and make things grow.”
