College Point City Guide
College Point, New York is a mostly residential neighborhood in Queens with a population of just 20,790. Of course, the last time it was polled was 2000, so it may be quite a bit bigger or smaller. If you like irony, you’ll love the fact that College Point hasn’t had a local college since St. Paul’s College was closed in 1850. German industrialist Conrad Poppenhusen (famous for founding the first free kindergarten in the US) opened a rubber goods factory here in 1854 and from that point on, College Point became an industrial town.
A great way to get to see College Point and the surrounding area is to take a guided jetski tour from Tugamotorsports Jetski Rentals which goes along the East River all the way down to the Statue of Liberty. Enjoy a delicious lunch at LuLu Seafood Restaurant for the freshest seafood in the area or Ben’s Best, a popular deli in nearby Rego Park, and stop in for a beverage at Presso Coffee in neighboring Flushing.
If you decide to buy your own jetski but live in a tiny bachelor pad, rather than annoy your neighbors by parking it in the hallway, rent a storage unit at a local self storage facility.
College Point may be small, but it’s easy to travel just a short distance via subway, car or bike for plenty of activities. Be sure to visit the New York Hall of Science in nearby Corona, which is a fun, interactive science museum (including a radar gun that measures how fast you can throw a baseball). If you’re in Flushing, don’t miss the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center which has hosted the US Open each year since 1978.
Venture out just a bit further and you’ll find yourself in Manhattan where there is no end to the things that you can do. Aside from the big and obvious—Times Square, Broadway, the Empire State Building—there are plenty of less touristy attractions, such as: take a Grand Central Partnership Walking Tour, enjoy a cocktail at famous speakeasy Raines Law Room, have a laugh at the Comedy Cellar, cycle along the Hudson River Park, and don’t forget to stop in at Levain Bakery for the most popular cookies in town.
To ensure that you don’t clutter up your tiny apartment, make like a true New Yorker and store your bikes, tennis rackets, and other outdoor equipment at a local self storage unit.
