9780738598338: Jackson Heights (Images of America)

At the turn of the 20th century, the neighborhood known as Jackson Heights was originally called Trains Meadow, a sprawling area covered by acres of farmland and rolling hills. Its only inhabitants were homesteaders who lived in their ancient wood-framed dwellings with spreads occupied by barns, horse stables, cabbage patches, and beehives. Overgrowing populations in Manhattan and Brooklyn led developers to Queens County to transform that landscape into Jackson Heights. Headed by Edward Archibald MacDougall, the ambitious Queensboro Corporation spent nearly $4 million buying properties, molding roads, and constructing buildings of great architectural merit. Jackson Heights provides an in-depth look at the history of America’s first garden apartment community with the use of never-before-seen photographs culled from local archives and private collections. Images featured show the neighborhood’s progression from rural farmland to the highly populated economic center it is today with memorable businesses like Jahn’s Ice Cream Parlor and the cultural splendor along Thirty-seventh Avenue and Eighty-second Street.
