One Last Remembered Place

A farewell post to Patch's history column on northeast Queens.

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 northeast Queens.

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

My favorite installment of RP—part mystery, part intrigue, all while on the hunt to uncover the truth about the missing Matinecock.

You'd be remiss to skip our copy on the Little Neck Bay's waterfront.

In our travels, we were lucky enough to be invited inside one of the last standing homes of the long since vanished baymen. The old vernacular style Douglaston 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 reading the column!

About this column: Remembered Places highlights the historic venues, buildings and homes even longtime northeast Queens residents might have missed.

Pat thanks for keeping our local history alive. It was a great column and will be missed.
