The neighbourhood of Whitestone is situated in the North of the borough of Queens and is linked to the Bronx by the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge which crosses the East River. Every Sunday the Italian residents of the community fill the Roman Catholic church of St.Lukes, which has become a local landmark, to listen to the mass being delivered in the Italian language.

Whitestone is regarded as one of the more affluent areas of Queens, especially the Malba neighbourhood which is located on the waterfront. The most expensive private homes in New York City are actually located in Malba which has a high percentage of Italian American residents.
