March 4th, 2013



is just a bit behind where I'm standing on Hillside Avenue; this is the only sign marking the border.

    Man, you’re making me so homesick, I was just in that Walgreens 3 weeks ago…but anyway this is actually not the easternmost point of Queens. The easternmost point is about a mile north at Union Turnpike and 271st Street :)

      I’ve heard that before about 271st. If you look at a map, however, you can see that this point is definitely farther east. People probably make that assumption because 271 is the highest street number.

    Union Tpke and Langdale St is the eastern most point in Queens and in the city itself. Consult a map and you’ll see. This is a non debatable fact.

      I certainly have consulted a map. Langdale Street is angled slightly to the east as it runs south, meaning that Langdale and Hillside is a few hundred feet farther east than Langdale and Union. The city boundary, by the way, does not run along Langdale, but parallels it about 100 feet east.

      Actually Union Turpike & Hillside Avenue is situated slightly further east
