I totally knew that was First Reform Church! The side building there is still recognizable. I went to Saint Fidelis but I have fond memories of the FRC's summer camps.

At 1:52 some guy strikes a funny pose.

Great video. Thanks for posting! I can't help but think I would have loved living Queens at that time.

Truly amazing video. We need to work really hard to ensure that College Point and the rest of Northeast Queens retains its character and charm. We live in a special area that many powers are trying to destroy!

Happy Easter everyone!

I wonder what folks will think of us when they see old footage in 80 years or so. I hope they will see good, honest and patriotic American because that is what most of us are. Have a Blessed Easter Sunday!
