Whitestoner (inhabitant of Whitestone, Queens)

"Whitestoner” is the name of an inhabitant of Whitestone, in the borough of Queens. The name “Whitestoner” has been cited in print since at least 1902.

“Whitestoner” should not be confused with “white stoner."

Wikipedia: Whitestone, Queens
Whitestone is a residential upper middle class neighborhood in the northernmost part of the New York City borough of Queens. Located between the East River to the north and 25th Avenue to the south. Whitestone is surrounded by College Point, Flushing, Bayside, Auburndale, Linden Hill, and Murray Hill.

The Reel Queens:
Blackout made filming a horror for Whitestoner

By Nathan Duke
Shot during a period of three weeks amid the 10-day blackout of July 2006 in a sweltering warehouse at the corner of 38th Street and 23rd Avenue in Astoria, “The Sickness” is a horror film that tells the story of five lab technicians, all played by borough natives, who suffer dire consequences when the dangerous chemical they are studying is accidentally spilled. Paolino, a Whitestone resident who has worked on special effects and prosthetics for feature films since the late 1970s and teaches makeup and visual effects at Manhattan’s School of Visual Arts, said he has put the finishing touches on the editing of his feature debut and is now in the process of screening it for distributors.
