"College Point Shore Front Park"

Wow! All I can say is what a park to go to. I was there and trust me it is beautiful. It was well kept and so peaceful. If you really want to go somewhere that is quiet and serene, this is the place to be.
Pros
  • Beautiful looking area
  • Beautiful park at end of road
Cons
  • Too many kids around during summer
  • Too many people at times

"I SEE NICE STREETS SHARE THE SAME VIBE"

Again, one of the best streets I've visited in Queens so far. Family- oriented place with much fun and excitement. This is one of the streets I looked into as far as buying a house. A great place for me and my family to grow and evolve into happy human beings and appreciate the positive side of life knowing there are ups and downs, and taking the good over the bad.

"GREAT AREA TO RESIDE IN"

When I visited here, I noticed it was full of life in every being of life. There's plenty of kids, so there''s much laughter and play. I visited around winter time, so I got the pleasure of watching the kids play and sled down kills. I watched domestic as well as wildlife animals act as if they were in the perfect tranquil, but adventurous street. I would suggest this area for retirees, couples, families, everyone.

"On Summit Place"

Summit Place in Queens has some really beautiful housing options. It's in one of the nicer residential neighborhoods in this wonderful borough. On the nearby streets, you might be able to find more in terms of places to eat, but all in all I think that this would be a wonderful place to raise a family nce you're a bit more established.

"Poppenhusen and 5th Ave. WATERFRONT!"

I had to add a post for 5th Ave. here because it would only search, 5th Ave. Manhattan.
This is still one of the nicest streets in College Point. 5th Ave. becomes Poppenhusen Ave. going west. 5th Ave. hugs McNeil Park. Only one side in that area then is residential. There are multi-family residences as well as single family homes.. It is also close to a city bus route. This street is waterfront property. The view is of Manhattan and also much closer, Rikers Island Correctional Facility. On the 4th of July this is an awesome street to view the Manhattan fireworks. This street is a bit wider in places than other streets in College Point. Rent is a little more because of location. College Point is loud because of the air traffic from LaGuardia Airport. You may have to get used to it. A low flying jet may even rattle the house windows!

"Historic Poppenheusen Avenue"

Poppenhusen Avenue is a street that runs through College Point to McNeil Park. The street is named after Conrad Poppenhusen, the founding father and benefactor of College Point. The highlight of Poppenhusen Ave. is McNeil Park. The park has a playground, plenty of green grass and tress for picnics. A waterfront walking, jogging or bicycling path. There is a ballfield and in the winter a great place for sledding!
