Queens College is in Flushing, and Pomonok is across the street... explain? Is it on the border?

164th st is considered the border, so Pomonok is in Flushing. I mean, there's no REAL borders, they're basically like folklore borders, passed down orally through generations, but the post office considers everyone with a 113 area code to live in Flushing, technically. It would just be easier if we wrote "Queens, NY" on our addresses like every other borough, wouldn't it be? The big Creedmoor tower uses a Queens Village address even though it's north of Union Turnpike, which is the border between Douglaston and Queens Village/Bellerose.

what parts? i have never felt danger in flushing at night, and i've walked through bland at 2 in the morning, went to a party there. and i walked thru pomonok to get where my friend lived in electchester. even kissena blvd is a tad bit ghetto but cetainly nothing to get worried over.

I used to ride my bike through Pomonok all the time when I was a kid, haha. I didn't know they were projects then.

I saw a homemade rap video that was shot there on Queens Public Access a few years ago. The dude was cooking crack in his kitchen and shooting dice with his boys in front of the 'Welcome to Pomonok Houses' sign. Kinda funny.

I take the bus from in front of those houses everyday.. it took me awhile to realize they were projects.. there's no "seedy" people walking around, and they don't look all that bad either.

Flushing seems nice so I might look out there. Does anyone have any idea what trains I can take to Flushing ?

The 7, or the LIRR.

7 to either Willets Point or Main Street.. there's always the LIRR, but there's not much point to that if you're near the subway.

Do you guys know any trains other than the 7 to get to flushing ? Where i am located at i would have to take a train to Manhattan to get the 7 .. because i live in Brooklyn and There are only 4 trains in the station i go to the Q,R,B,M and i would like to not past Manhattan when going to my job in Brooklyn. Just because Manhattan is a crowded place and it could take me forever to get to my job.

The 7 is the only train to get to Flushing.
