The community stands on land granted to Samuel Hunt in 1759. Mr. Hunt was an important figure, serving in a myriad of functions including coroner, schoolteacher and Justice of the Peace.
Hunts Point is one of many communities in Queens with a Harbour Authority and is a hive of activity during the lobster season, which in Queens runs from the last Monday in November to May 31st. The first day of lobstering is known as "dumping day", where fisher's families will come out at dawn to the wharves to see the boats off and to celebrate the start of the season.
Hunts Point is on Highway 3, about 10 minutes west of Liverpool.
