Believe me when I say one bowl of Dan Dan Noodles is not enough. You’ll be asking for more so top off that heat with Spicy Cold Noodles and Sliced Pork Belly in Chili Garlic Sauce. Little Pepper in College Point serves up the best Sichuan food I have ever had in NYC.

A boat long decaying in College Point’s northern shoreline with the Whitestone Bridge in the background.  The boat can be found as you walk along a public waterfront path of the Powell Cove Estates.  You can also see the remains of previous piers. 
College Point was once home to numerous factories, allowing raw materials to come in and finished products to ship out with ease in the late 19c and early 20c.  The neighborhood was also a recreational getaway.  Ferries from Manhattan would shuttle people who would arrive to spend time in the numerous outdoor German beer gardens.  Unfortunately, none of those beer gardens exist today.  Even Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia spent the summer of 1937 in College Point, conducting the city’s administrative business in a mansion by the water, eventually dubbed “the Summer City Hall”.
