About Our Building
Hunter's Point Community Middle School occupies the third and part of the first floor within the newly constructed Q404 Hunter's Point Campus located at 1-50 51st Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11101. We are between Center Blvd and 2nd Street.
The environmentally designed building features natural light and views of the East River and Manhattan. We collaborate with the two other schools located in our building: The Academy for Careers in TV and Film and The Riverview School, a 6-12 District 75 program.
Excerpt from Architectural Record:
The facility can accommodate more than 1,000 students dispersed among the three schools. In addition to the high school, the building contains the newly created Hunter’s Point Community Middle School, with an ecology focus, and the Riverview School for special-education students. Located on a former industrial site, most classrooms—along with the light-filled hallways, library, and cafeteria—treat students to a sweeping panorama of the Manhattan skyline. “Even though it’s an urban school, we’ve tried to make it feel as if it’s part of a dynamic landscape,” says FXFOWLE senior partner Sylvia Smith. “The challenge was creating a narrative that reflected this amazing site.” Read more about the origin of our building.
