College point is a very calm neighborhood area if you're looking to get out of the loud busy areas. In college point you will find many people with different nationalities however, it is not as diverse as it is in Astoria or Jackson Heights. College point is relatively far from the rest of the borough of queens, but college point blvd provides more diversity and activities for the people of college point. With different restaurants and bakeries as well as salons and convenience stores, college point blvd provides it all. However, certain salons over price their services and certain delis also over price their products compared to other delis in the borough of queens. College point provides many bus services however it takes long to get to the nearest train station which is in flushing. Any bus can take you to flushing and to other buses where you can transfer for another bus.

College Point is a diverse neighborhood with people from all around the world. But that adds a distinctive experiences for the people. People can come to College pt for the various food that are served in local restaurants, one of the biggest thing here was festival. Few months ago, we had a festival for Hispanic culture people I very much enjoyed the event. From corn-dogs to cultural goods that I never seem before I felt I was in a new world, fascinated by all the new things happening around me. Also, they provided horseback riding but unfortunately I wasn't able to participate because the crowds gathered to this event. On that day, the entire street was closed for this special event that celebrates the Hispanic culture, customs, traditions, and songs, made me appreciates for all the things I never had a chance to experience.
I've lived in college point ever since 2006? Things sure are changing around here, since they constructed a new Audi Dealership right next to the New York Police Academy. College point closer towards main street has always been known as the power plant area, lots of factories, a home depot, a con edison. Then about half a mile will be a movie theater, party city and a closed down toys r us (not sure what they"ll change it to now). But, it is a growing and changing small neighborhood. Deeper in college point is where you"ll start seeing alot of small shops, markets and other services. College point can be very quiet while peaceful. There are docks and parks that are available for anyone. The only bad side about college point... would have to be the Q65 bus service, super crowded and slow at times.
