⁴ᴷ Walking Tour of College Point and Downtown Flushing, Queens, NYC



Google Maps Route: https://goo.gl/PMndYo

I exit a (7) Train at the Main Street-Flushing subway station, and walk through Downtown Flushing to the neighborhood of College Point.

From Wikipedia:
College Point is a working-middle-class neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens. It is located north of Flushing on Flushing Bay and the East River also part of the Queens Community Board 7. Willets Point Boulevard and the Whitestone Expressway are often the neighborhood’s approximate boundaries with Flushing and Whitestone, respectively; College Point also borders Willets Point at the Flushing River at the extreme southwest corner. The 109th Precinct of the New York City Police Department (NYPD) serves College Point. College Point is a diverse community, mostly residential, with some industrial areas.”

  2. Omg, you walked right by house. You walked by all the stores we go to regularly, I’ve been on all those roads and I’ve lived there my whole life. It just feels so surreal to see someone else on YouTube walking through my town

  3. I lived in College Point 67 -77 you walked by the house lived on 127 st between 22nd ave and 20th. We were I think 2nd Puerto Rican family in town then. I spent most of my teenage years at the park we used to call the park Chislom don't know why. Thank you for the video I showed this to my family

  4. Should’ve gone to 20th Ave – 15th Ave. it’s nice there, it’s almost like another main st but wayyy smaller, but LOTS of stores/places to eat. especially the All Nation Food Market, highly recommend

  5. Enjoyed this walk. When you were walking toward Petco, I thought you were going in..Also made me think you were on a geocaching adventure. Have you ever done that? Maybe that would be a cool video to make
