Fun Facts and History of Whitestone

Whitestone began its colonial life as the estate of founding father, Frances Lewis. Said estate was even ransacked during the American Revolution. After the war, the land was sold to wealthy families so that they may also build large estates there.

Urban development didn’t begin until the 1920’s when railroads and bridges were constructed in the area. A separate, more upscale part of the neighborhood, known as Malba, remained larger family homes with yards, many of which still stand to this day.

Further development from highways connecting The Bronx to Queens and the rest of Long Island helped develop the neighborhood further. Today, Whitestone is a calm neighborhood with a wide variety of living spaces.

Atmosphere of Whitestone

Whitestone is an area that has a lot of people, yet it doesn't feel crowded. That’s not to say the streets are empty. Far from it. There are a ton of stores, restaurants, and schools that keep people busy here. However, these things are spread out, which means the crowds are as well.

This is not a party neighborhood. Most spots in this neighborhood quiet down around 10 or 11, meaning the families that live here enjoy a sense of calm. It’s a bit out of the way from the rest of the city, and that’s how the residents like it.

Family Score for Whitestone

Whitestone is great for families. There are plenty of schools, easy access to hospitals, and it’s close to plenty of green, outdoor spaces. The one concern might be the noise levels, not from the residents, but from the major highways. That said, the noise from these streets is at its peak during rush hour, and is almost never an issue late at night.
