Virtual Walking Tour: The Hidden History of Little Neck: Session II
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Located on the North Shore of Long Island, the eastern part of Queens, Douglaston–Little Neck is composed of two main sections. Little Neck is generally used to refer to the area east of Marathon Parkway and/or north of Northern Boulevard, while Douglaston is the rest of the neighborhood. The history of Little Neck is very rich and diverse. Situated on the Eastern frontier of Queens County, the neighborhood is one of the oldest in the city. Today, there are still many sites of historical interest hidden in plain sight.
On August 1st, join Queens Historical Society on this unique virtual tour as we explore old homesteads, Native American history, and a hidden train station! We will be exploring the neighborhood on foot and learning about its intricate histories from our tour guide, Queens historian, Jason Antos.
The tour will be a real-time live stream event via Instagram Live. Click here to go to our Instagram page, and follow us to get notified when we go live! You will need an Instagram account to view.
