Queens directories and history books
Map of Queens

Queens Directories – of New York City – were, before 1898, an assortment of village directories, Queens County directories, Long Island Directories, and add-ins or partial inclusions to New York City directories. In 1898, 30% of the western part of the old Queens County was absorbed into New York City. Before 1898, Nassau County covered the eastern 70% of the old Queens County. The older, larger Queens County was mostly agricultural, and within it were several towns, villages, and hamlets. In the mid- to late-19th century, cemeteries constituted one of the larger industries in Queens, Kings ( Brooklyn), and Westchester (north of The Bronx) Counties. As of 1898, Queens County, New York, and the Borough of Queens, New York City, geographically, have been the same. Both Queens and Brooklyn are on Long Island.

Long Island A Native American name for Long Island is Paumanok, meaning "The Island that Pays Tribute". Long Island was known as "Nassau Island" during the Colonial Dutch era, [1] and later, the "Island of Stirling" after the Earl of Stirling (c. 1567–1640) acquired it, with other lands in North America exceeding ten million acres in 1621 and 1625 from Charles I. However, The Duke of York (who became James II), bought back the land for seven thousand pounds, but failed to pay the debt to Charles I. Ownership, namely for Long Island, reverted to the Earl of Stirling, although, the Plymouth Colony claimed it. King Charles, on April 22, 1636, instructed the Plymouth Colony to give Long Island to the Earl of Stirling. On April 20, 1637, the Earl of Stirling gave James Farret power of attorney to sell his land on Long Island. In 1641, James Farret, on behalf of the Stirling Estate, sold most of the eastern portion to the New Haven and Connecticut Colonies. [2] (see Robins Island) Farret was allowed to choose 12,000 acres (49 km2) for his personal use. He chose Shelter Island. [3] Grantees on behalf of the New Haven and Connecticut Colonies:

1652: Elmhurst Elmhurst, Queens, chartered in 1652 as Middelburgh (aka Middelburg) by settlers, English Puritans, from nearby Maspat (today's Maspeth). The name changed to Hastings when the British took over New Netherland in 1664, then New Towne (Newtown) in 1665. [10] In 1896, two years before Queens County was incorporated into the Greater City of New York, the town was renamed Elmhurst. The namechange was influenced by Cord J. Meyer (1854–1910), who owned and developed real estate in the village. [11] [12]
1683: Province of New York On November 1, 1683, the British colony of New York – aka Province of New York – was organized as twelve counties. Queens, one of the twelve, included current Nassau County.
1683: New York City wards New York City was divided into wards between 1683 and 1938. These were used for the election of various municipal offices, and would later be used to define the boundaries of larger electoral districts. Prior to the formation of the so-called City of Greater New York in 1898, what is now New York City comprised multiple municipalities that had different histories with wards. (see Wards of New York City)
1785 New-York Manumission Society The New-York Manumission Society, an abolitionist advocacy group, was founded in 1785. New York State, on February 22, 1788, passed "An Act Concerning Slaves," that authorized a slave owner to free any slave in a procedure called "manumit." The procedure required the owner to procure from the Overseers of the Poor a certificate certifying that the slave is under the age of fifty years, and of sufficient ability to provide for themself, and the certificate shall be registered in the Clerks office of the town. [13]
1799 Gradual Emancipation Act of New York New York, in 1799, passed a Gradual Emancipation Act, a law that freed no living slave; but after the date of passage, children born to slave mothers were required to work for the mother's master as indentured servants until age 28 (men) and 25 (women). The last slaves were freed of this obligation on July 4, 1827 – 28 years after 1799. African Americans celebrated with a parade. (see History of slavery in New York & § Slavery in New York).
1836: College Point In 1836, about 33 years before being incorporated as College Point, Rev. William Augustus Muhlenberg (1796–1877), an Episcopal Priest, began working to establish St. Paul's College and Grammar School to train priests. The college opened in 1839 and closed in 1847. Before 1836, William Lawrence (1622–1680), a slave owner, had owned nearly 900 acres – all of Tew's Neck – as grantee of a patent from the Dutch in 1645. [14] Tew's Neck had been named for Michael Tew, the first settler. [15] Eliphalet Stratton (1745–1831), in 1789, purchased 320 acres from the descendants of William Lawrence and established the village of Strattonport. In 1851, one of Stratton's daughters, as trustee, sold 141 acres – south of 15th Avenue – to real estate developers John A. Flammer (related to John G. Flammer; Johann Gottlieb Flammer; 1807–1886) and Peter W. Longley, who established Flammersburg. Stratton's daughter retained the balance of one hundred and eighty acres for the Stratton family. Flammer and Longley subdivided the property into 80 building lots. By 1856, the three subdivisions – Strattonport, Flammersburg, and College Point – were commonly referred to as College Point. [16] College Point was incorporated in 1867 or 1870. At the time, because many residents had immigrated from Germany, College Point was sometimes referred to as the "Little Heidelberg". Flammer was one of the original directors of the Third Avenue Railway and, in 1869, one of the original incorporators of The West Side Bank at 464 Eighth Avenue in Manhattan. [17] [18] [19]
1837: Panic of 1837
1837: Village of Flushing Village of Flushing was incorporated on April 15, 1837. [20]
1861–1865: Civil War No major battle occurred on Long Island during the Civil War. [21] But, the State of New York lost suffered an estimated 39,000 deaths, more than any other state, Union of Confederate.

William Andrew Boyd (1850–1918) published a directory in 1864 that included Astoria, Flushing, Jamaica, and Newtown. (see § Boyd's directory, below)

1865: Blissville Blissville was named for Neziah Bliss (1790–1876), who, with Eliphalet Nott (1773–1866), in 1837, purchased what then was the Hunter farm, which included Hunters Point. [22] Blissville also included Francis Duryea's farm. [23] [24] One of Neziah Bliss' sons, Archibald Meserole Bliss (1836–1923), became a U.S. Congressman.
1870: Long Island City Captain Levy Hayden, superintendent of a marine railway formerly at Hunters Point, predicted, as early as 1853, that the area around Hunters Point would become a city. He even proposed that it be named "Long Island City." Thomas H. Todd (1835–1901), who, on October 20, 1865, published the first issue a newspaper bearing the name The Long Island City Star. [25] Long Island City, on May 4, 1870, incorporated as a city from the merger of the Village of Astoria and the hamlets of Ravenswood, Hunters Point, Blissville, Sunnyside, Dutch Kills, Steinway, Bowery Bay, and Middleton – all separating from the Town of Newtown. At the time of its incorporation, Long Island City had between 12,000 and 15,000 residents. When it consolidated with New York City in 1898, it was 27 years, 7 months, and 28 days old. [26]
1882: Ozone Park As in "fresh air," not "ozone layer." Benjamin W. Hitchcock and Charles C. Denton, who bought farmland and created building lots after a railroad opened in 1880 from Long Island City to Howard Beach. They decided to call their development Ozone Park to promote the idea of cool, clean breezes blowing in from the Atlantic Ocean. Fresh air is one of the meanings of ozone [27] [28]
1886: Bowery Bay Beach Bowery Bay Beach, later named North Beach, opened in 1886 on the shores of Bowery and Flushing Bays. It was known as the "Coney Island of Queens."
1889: Murray Hill Murray Hill in Queens, geologically, has no hill. Albeit, its namesake is from William King Murray (1839–1918), [29] [30] a Flushing horticulturist and nurseryman who, with Robert Bowne Parsons (1821–1898) (also a horticulturalist and nurseryman), sold property in the late 1880s to a real estate development firm headed by Frederick William Dunton (1851–1931). Dunton, by way of his mother, Lois Dunton (née Corbin; 1819–1893), was a nephew of Austin Corbin (1827–1996), President of the LIRR from 1881 until his death. On November 2, 1898, Robert Bowne Parsons was struck and killed instantly by a westbound LIRR train at Newtown while attempting to cross the track to catch a departing eastbound train home to Flushing. [31] The original Murray Hill neighborhood in Manhattan is the namesake of Robert Murray (1721–1786), [32] a New York City merchant and shipping tycoon [33] and wife, Mary Lindley (maiden; 1726–1782). William King Murray, by way of his mother, Mary Ann King Murray (née Mary Ann King; 1790–1872), was a nephew of Joseph Harris King (1811–1887), who was married to Anna Lawrence Bloodgood (1810–1843), daughter of James Bloodgood (1781–1826),("Inscriptions" → St. George's Episcopal Church Yard, Vol. 4. 1912. p. 85. → § Families and genealogy) a widely-known horticulturist and nurseryman from Flushing.
1890: Trow Settlement John Libby was, in 1890, one of the four buyers of the block between 28th and 29th Streets and 14th and 15th Avenues in Beechhurst. This block was originally settled by employees of the Trow City Directory Company (see Jonathan Leavitt and John Fowler Trow) and was called for many years the "Trow Settlement." The house which was originally the Libby home, on the corner of 14th Avenue and 28thy Street, was later owned by Mrs. Charlotte Phayre. [34] [35]
1893: Panic of 1893
1897: Consolidation authorized The New York City borough of Queens was authorized May 4, 1897, by a vote of the New York State Legislature after an 1894 referendum on consolidation. [36] The eastern 280 square miles (730 km2) of Queens that became Nassau County was partitioned January 1, 1899. [37] Queens Borough was established on January 1, 1898. [38] [39] [40]
1898: Consolidation occurred On January 1, 1898, New York City absorbed East Bronx, Brooklyn, western Queens County, and Staten Island. [36] [41] From western Queens, all of Flushing, Jamaica, Long Island City, and Newtown, as well as the Rockaway Peninsula portion of Hempstead was included. The rest of Hempstead and the Towns of North Hempstead and Oyster Bay split from Queens County to form Nassau County in 1899. Prior to consolidation, Lloyd Neck, which was then part of the Town of Oyster Bay and had earlier been known as Queens Village, seceded from Queens County and became part of the Town of Huntington in Suffolk County in 1885. [36] [41] [42] [43]

Hunters Point Dominie's Hoek – named after Everardus Bogardus, dominie of New Netherlands – was divided into Hunters Point and Ravenswood. Jacob Bennett (died 1817), a descendant of Jan Bogardus and of one of the settlers of Dominie's Hoek, acquired sole ownership of the tract in 1767. The land, an extensive farm, upon Bogardus' death, passed to his daughter and son-in-law, Anne and George Hunter. [44] [45]
Jamaica The "Jameco" tribe – or "Yam-may-ko" [46] or "Yamecah" [47] – in the Algonquin language, translates to "place of beaver," [27] whence, as chronicled by some, Jamaica derived its name. The Jameco natives lived on the northern shore of what became known as Jamaica Bay and along Beaver Stream and Beaver Pond, which was filled in 1906. [48] [49]

Post-consolidation (after 1898) neighborhoods

Post-consolidation (after 1898) neighborhoods
1901: Auburndale Auburndale, east of Flushing, was originally 90 of a 117-acre farm of Thomas Seaman Willets (1853–1909), whose family had owned it since 1745. Willets, in 1901, sold it to the New England Development Company (New England Development & Improvement Company), a syndicate of East Coast investors that developed several residential projects in the Eastern U.S. The company subdivided Willets' farm into lots and streets and renamed it Auburndale. The LIRR opened a station there in May 1901 and named it Auburndale Station. The original Auburndale station was moved and converted into a church that survived until 1973. The name comes from Auburndale, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston, and home of Lewis Henry Green (1868–1941), who then was President of the company. [50]
1909: Jackson Heights Jackson Heights, until 1909, was known as Trains Meadow.
1925: Rego Park Rego Park and Middle Village was settled by Dutch farmers in 1653 as Whitepot, then part of Newtown. "Rego" is a portmanteau of "Real Good Construction Company" that began developing the area in 1925. [27]
1970: Flushing Flushing is host to one of three large Asian American communities in the New York City. The other two are Chinatown on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and Sunset Park in Brooklyn. [51] Outside of New York City, but within its metropolitan area, Bergen County, New Jersey – on the other side of Manhattan, just across the Hudson River – has the second largest concentration, per capita, of Asian Americans in New Jersey. Manhattan's Chinatown, the city's oldest Asian American neighborhood, began to flourish around 1870. [52] Flushing, the second oldest, began to flourish in the 1970s, with the first wave of immigrants from Taiwan. Sunset Park, the newest in Queens, began to flourish as an Asian community in 1990.

The city is home to about twelve Asian communities, [53] including one in Corona, one in Whitestone, and one in Eastern Queens. [54] Other city neighborhoods with emerging Asian communities include East Harlem, Manhattan. Outside of New York City, but within the city's metropolitan area, Edison, New Jersey, has a sizable Asian community.

Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, is reputed to have the largest China-born population in New York City, but the neighborhood is not so densely populated as the Asian neighborhoods of those of Manhattan, Flushing, and Sunset Park.
