The young hipsterati have recently discovered this unlikely paradise—more Dr. Seuss-inspired water park than urban day spa—but the traditional customers at Spa Castle are as old-school as they come. Tucked away in College Point, this local version of jimjilbang, the traditional Korean 24-hour bathhouse where families soak, steam, dine and even nap together is a five-story, 60,000-square-foot "spa and water park" that almost defies description. It's open 'til midnight, too.
