Eh, there will always be somebody crazy enough to buy them at even higher prices later on...

No, there will not ALWAYS be such a person.

There will however be a person who would buy such a property and convert it into a room-by-the-hour hotel or contract it out as a halfway house for the NY DOC (for which the QP area is perfect).

They're still better looking than most of the pre-war single family stock in most of the borough.

Only because they are new. Wait a few more years.

Those older single-family or two-family houses that you mock are sustainable for that kind of neighborhood and there will always be buyers who want them, will raise a family in them and will renovate and improve them.
They will ALWAYS be in demand. Especially with the solid immigrant families and their kids who have always made Astoria/LIC great.

They don't require new sewer, water and power infrastructure or new schools and hospitals.

They are the foundation of places like Astoria/LIC.
