The Poppenhusen Institute is considered a cultural hub in College Point.

BY MELISSA MOTT

The Poppenhusen Institute is one of the many gems of College Point.

The historic heart of the community — one of the oldest centers in the neighborhood — was established even before the area got its name in 1868.

“The Popps,” as the center is often called, hosts activities for people of all ages, including events and parties. At the 114-04 14th Road site, children and adults can find everything from karate and music lessons to historical exhibitions, concerts and shows.

Also known as the “Doorway of Opportunity,” Poppenhusen relies largely upon volunteers to keep the cultural center up and running, officials said.

It is open almost every weekday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., except on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and is open for events on Saturdays and Sundays.
