College Point Real Estate

Picture of College Point

College Point is one of several enclaves that makes up part of Whitestone, a four-mile-square residential neighborhood in the northernmost part of Queens, surrounded by the neighborhoods of Flushing, Bayside, Auburndale, Linden Hill, and Murray Hill (in addition to College Point), with three miles of shoreline fanning out between the Bronx-Whitestone and Throgs Neck Bridges. Within it are the enclaves of Malba, Malba Gardens, Whitestone Woods, Beechhurst and Robinswood. Malba is known for its large, expensive homes. Centrally-located Whitestone is the main shopping district; Beechhurst offers apartment towers along its shorefront. Parts of Whitestone resemble the communities of eastern neighbor Nassau county, though Queens county taxes tend to be much lower.

Whitestone's reputation for good schools as well as its quiet neighborhoods, residential streets and beautiful views of the Midtown Manhattan skyline from its highest points keep housing prices and community pride high. Whitestone was developed as a summer home destination for wealthy Manhattanites in the late 19th century, and highways brought the first suburbs in the first half of the 20th. Though much of Whitestone is modest and tree-lined, homes get bigger and grander near the water. Though the nearest New York City subway and Long Island Rail Road stations are 15 minutes away in Flushing, residents feel that their community gains in privacy and suburban character what it may cede in commuter convenience.

The neighborhood's two beaches—open only to residents with permits—resemble smaller versions of Long Island landmark Jones Beach. Boat moorings can be bought at the Beechhurst Yacht Club. Little Bay Park near the Throgs Neck Bridge affords stunning bridge views and is popular with joggers and strollers. In the town center at 150th Street north of the Cross Island Parkway, you'll find several restaurants and local "Main Street" shops that have more small-town character than those in many actual small towns. Several major shopping centers in College Point offer the modern convenience of stores like Target, Home Depot and T.J. Maxx.

College Point, a 2.3-square-mile slice of land extending into the East River is treasured for its waterfront views. The small, spirited community holds an annual Memorial Day parade and hosts summer street fairs along College Point Boulevard, the main shopping street, and concerts and other community events are held at the 29-acre Hermon A. MacNeil Park.
