Around Whitestone

Whitestone has a very residential feel, with most of the housing in the area being single or multi-family homes rather than condos or co-ops. Many of the area’s homes offer the full suburban experience, complete with yards, gardens, driveways, and garages. If waterfront views are on your checklist, be sure to check out properties along the neighborhood’s northern border, the East River.

Whitestone has a variety of restaurants, delis, and coffee shops; however, the area is most well-known for its Italian cuisine. Here you can find everything from casual pizzerias to white tablecloth restaurants serving classic Italian fare.

When walking through the neighborhood of Whitestone, be sure to take in the peace and quiet of its residential nature. As you walk the tree-lined streets, take a moment to admire the beauty of your neighbor’s gardens and yards. Although you’re less than an hour’s drive from Manhattan, you may forget you’re in New York City.

While Whitestone is a very residential area with limited nightlife, there are still several local bars and pubs in the area to grab a drink with friends. If you’re looking for a more vibrant nightlife scene, the neighborhood of downtown Flushing is only a short drive away and has many bars, clubs, and lounges for a night out on the town.

Due to Whitestone’s residential nature, there are not many attractions directly within the neighborhood. However, the neighboring area of College Point offers a variety of stores and parks to enjoy. If you’re looking to do some Sunday shopping, College Point Center offers a variety of stores to choose from. Within walking distance of College Point Center, both Frank Golden Park and Powell’s Cove Park offer an opportunity to relax and take in some nature.

While there are a multitude of MTA bus routes in the neighborhood, most locals own their own vehicles due to the residential nature of the area.
