Hunts Point Wharf is one of the most popular sites in Queens County. Paintings and photographs of the scenic ocean-side wharf can be seen in local offices and living rooms throughout Queens.
What makes Hunts Point Wharf so popular? Is it the stunning sunsets that hit the shores on those warm summer nights? Or the quant fish shacks that line each side of the slip like two steady arms helping bring in the haul of the day?
The quiet wharf has quite a history, going back to the 1700s. Sitting on the Atlantic Coast, the wharf housed many boats, gear and men over the years and has been battered by the sea on more than a few occasions.
