Virtual Walking Tour: The Hidden History of Little Neck: Session II @ online | New York | United States

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.

This concert is dedicated to the Delano Family.
Ransom Delano (1827-1891) & Charity Demarest Delano (1826-1898) at Maple Grove.
Ransom R Delano was born into a large family in Cortland County New York. The Delano family can be traced back to the 2nd ship to arrive at Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts in the 1600’s and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is also descended from this family through his mother. Ransom Delano met Charity Demarest in 1844 when he came to the New York Institute for the Blind in Manhattan at age 20. Charity had also come from upstate New York to the institute two years earlier. They had both lost their sight due to illness. In 1854 they married and continued to live on the West Side of Manhattan not far from the Institute which was at 9th Ave. & 34th St. It is now known as the NY Institute for the Education of the Blind and is located in the Bronx. Ransom is listed in the Manhattan directories as working at several different trades from the 1860’s to the 1880’s and is listed as an upholsterer, mattress maker and brush maker. There is an article called Double Eagles for the Blind in the New York Herald in 1887, where the couple were among 500 blind people who came to the office of the Commissioners of Charities and Correction to be given an annual gift of $40 in the form of two twenty dollar gold pieces. The Superintendent knew almost every face and “pleasantly greeted them in turn.” Most of the men were employed as mattress makers, brush makers, piano tuners and musicians.
