One Last Remembered Place

A farewell post to Little Neck Patch's history column.

All things come to an end, including Remembered Places, which will be discontinued for the time being, perhaps to return sometime down the road as more history is made out here in Little Neck.

But in case you missed these the first time around, here's a short list of my top picks:

By far my favorite installment of RP—part mystery, part intrigue, all while on the hunt to uncover the truth about the missing Matinecock of Little Neck.

You can’t spell Little Neck without Little Neck Bay, and you'd be remiss to skip our copy on the waterfront.

In our travels, we were lucky enough to be invited inside one of the last standing homes of the long since vanished baymen of Little Neck. The old vernacular style farmhouse along Depew didn't disappoint.

I still can't believe it took me to my 30 years to discover the 400 year old Poplar located in Alley Pond.

We end, where it all began, with the first installment of Remembered Places, featuring none other than the Queens Farm Museum.

We hoped you enjoyed the reading!

Pat, Thanks again for the great work... Hopefully there are more than a few Little Neck residents with a deeper understanding of the area's rich history because of your seemingly inexhaustible curiosity and sense of wonder at the forgotten people and places of a bygone age.

Thanks, Pat! Remembered Places has been a great column, filled with interesting stories and tidbits about Douglaston and Little Neck's history. It's been a pleasure to read.
