The Denton House of 1795 is now a McDonalds Restaurant known to locals as the McMansion, owned and operated by Jack Bert. This historic building was purchased by McDonalds in 1986 and went under a full restoration. The outside of the building was brought back to its original

splendor using pictures as guides. Inside a lot of the beautiful original character is still in place. In 2017 current owner, Jack Bert, remodeled the iconic building again. The outside was restored with historic accuracy and the inside very elegant with a little McDonalds flair.

Thomas Dongan was born in Castletown, Ireland in 1634 of a very old Catholic family. His brother William was made Viscount Dongan in 1661 and Earl of Limerick in 1685. Dongan entered the French army at an early age and made colonel in 1674 and recalled to England in 1677. In 1682 Dongan became New York’s fourth Royal Governor. One of Dongan’s first official acts was to convene the Assembly of Community Representatives from New York and Southern New England (then part of the New York Province). The 1683 assembly drew up the “Charter of Liberty and Privileges” which became the basis for the New York State Constitution. The assembly created the counties of New York State. Long Island was divided into three counties: Kings,Queens and Suffolk. Present day North Hempstead and Hempstead were part of Queens County which included Queens and Oyster Bay. Dongan also set up the Queens County Courthouse in what is now Jericho Turnpike and Marcus Avenue in Garden City Park Soon after the 1683 assembly, the towns of Flushing and Hempstead presented Dongan with a gift of land south of Success Pond. At the Nov. 12, 1684 Hempstead Town Board meeting, Dongan was gifted 200 acres of “woodland” adjoining the 400 acres given to him by the Town of Flushing. The large property,later spanning 672.5 acres, would become known as the Dongan Farm. The Dongan Farm was located west of Lakeville Road from south of Lake Success down to Jericho Turnpike. This 1918 map of the property was drawn by Frederick Van Wyck for the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. Dongan built a manor on the west side of Lakeville Road in the area now about 1,000 feet north of Hillside Avenue. An anti-Catholic aristocratic revolution pushed James II off the British throne in 1688. As a result, Dongan lost his governor-

ship and “retired to his farm in Hempstead.” Following a warrant for his arrest, Dongan escaped to New Jersey and then to Boston. Dongan returned to England in 1691. Upon his brother’s death in 1698,Thomas Dongan became the Earl of Limerick, although the Dongan land had already been confiscated by the Crown. Following Dongan’s death on Dec. 15, 1715,the Dongan Farm and manor were inherited by his nephews Thomas and Walter Dongan. In 1724,the heirs sold the Dongan estate to George Clark. Born in 1676 in Somersetshire, England, Clark was a nephew of William Blathwait who held significant power over colonial appointments. After practicing law in Dublin, he came to America in 1702 as Secretary of the Province of New York. While visiting England in 1705, he married Anne Hyde, who was related to Queen Anne and Lord Cornbury who was then governor of the Province of New York. Clark would become a member of the Provincial Council in 1716 and served as lieutenant governor from 1736 to 1743. To honor his wife (who died in 1740), Clark named his Long Island estate purchased from the Dongan heirs Hyde Park. At first the name referred just to the Clarke property, but after he returned to England in 1745, it was used for the entire area. Although the Clark property was sold off and sub-divided into several farms, the area for the next 165 years was referred to as Hyde Park. In 1871,John C. Christ and Phillip J. Miller applied to the Post Office Department for establish a post office in Hyde Park. The postal authorities refused to allow them to use the name since Hyde Park had been recently assigned to a Dutchess County village, later the birthplace of Franklin D. Roosevelt. The revised name New Hyde Park was approved by the postal authorities and the Long Island Rail Road changed the name of its station in March 1871. New Hyde Park became incorporated as a village on Aug. 17,1927.

· The Lily Theatre on Jericho Turnpike would cost $.25 for an all-day show; the theatre is now a retail space. · Adams Street was fondly called Lover’s Lane. A date back then would cost a gentleman $1.00. · There were 2 stores in our village: a deli on Louis Avenue and Emma Street owned by the Rutgers, and Poppa Smith’s on Louis Avenue and Tennessee Street. · The original firehouse was located on Bertha Street and Roquette Avenue. In 1930, the fire garage and meeting room was moved to Roquette Avenue. The first chief was Fredrick Kesslick and in 1940 the fire truck was a Model T Ford. By this time, the Ladies’ Auxiliary was in full swing. In 1984, the village constructed a new modern fire department. · National politics heightened the air of civil defense during the war and John Trinker, Jr. was in charge of Auxiliary Police Unit 103. We had a two-man police force in 1931 and the holding jail cell was the ladies’ bathroom. · In 1942 the Zoning Board of Appeals was created which still serves the village today. · A cast iron bell made in 1875 weighing about 75 pounds was used in the village prior to its incorporation. It was used to alert the volunteers and was placed on Kingston Avenue in 1915. In 1973, the bell was placed as a permanent monument on Arthur Avenue dedicated to the volunteer fireman in what is now known as Firemen’s Memorial Park.

NEW HYDE PARK HISTORY

Crash of North American B-25A Mitchell Bomber BY H OWA R D K ROP L I C K On New Year’s Day 1942 a North American B25A Mitchell Bomber #40-2199 took off at 7:20 am from Mitchel Field, fully equipped and fueled for a “routine training flight”. Less than one month after the December 7th Pearl Harbor raid, it is likely the bomber was on an anti-submarine patrol and loaded with bombs. Five crew were on the plane. Within minutes after take-off, one of the plane’s two engines began smoking and failed. The plane’s one engine could not carry the heavy

load and the 23-year pilot Lieutenant Charles Van Eeuwen struggled to keep the plane aloft, trying a low sweeping turn back to Mitchel Field. He soon realized that he was not going to make it. Rather than bailing out and risking having a crash of the medium size bomber into the many homes below in the Hillside Park Oaks community in New Hyde Park, Van Eeuwen attempted to land the plane in a vacant sand pit located south of Hillside Avenue and west of Denton Avenue. All five on board were killed when the gasoline tanks exploded upon hitting the sand pit. Van Eeuwen was

awarded a posthumous Distinguished Service Medal for avoiding hitting houses during the crash. In honor of the sacrifices of the five airmen, New Hyde Park residents placed a bronze plaque on the southwest corner of Hillside Avenue and Oak Drive. The plaque was later moved to the traffic circle at Michael Tully Park in New Hyde Park. Cer-

emonies honoring the airmen were held in 1942, 1972 and 1981. On the 75th anniversary of the airplane crash, a ceremony honoring the airmen will be held on Sunday, January 8, 2017 at Michael Tully Park. Howard Kroplick is the former Town of North Hempstead Historian

NEW HYDE PARK HISTORY

Vanderbilt Cup Races in New Hyde Park BY H OWA R D K ROP L I C K From 1904 to 1910, the most significant international automobile races in the world were held right here on Long Island-The Vanderbilt Cup Races. William K. Vanderbilt Jr. (1878-1944) was the great-grandson of Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt. At the age of only 26, William K. Vanderbilt Jr. proposed the first international road race to be held in the United States by donating the Vanderbilt Cup. The 1904 William K. Vanderbilt, Jr., Cup Race held was an immediate success among the public and supporters of automobile racing. America had finally created a major road race that attracted great drivers and cars from around the world. Newspapers and automobile trade journals helped to build the interest and excitement that ensured the Second Vanderbilt Cup Race in 1905. Responding to criticisms of the 1904 layout, the 1905 course was modified to eliminate controls through large towns and reduce the number

of sharp turns. One of the most exciting sections to view the race was the New Hyde Park Turn at Lakeville Road and Jericho Turnpike, located at the south-west corner of the 1905 course. These views of the race were captured by a photographer at the top of the steeple of The First Presbyterian Church, then located on the south-east corner of the intersection. Among the drivers seen at New Hyde Park Turn were prominent drivers including Louis Chevrolet and Vincenzo Lancia. Following the success of the 1904 Vanderbilt Cup Race, the second race was held on October 14, 1905. Competing against the five American cars, France, Germany, and Italy started 14 of their greatest cars and drivers including; Vincenzo Lancia, Louis Chevrolet and the 1904 winner George Heath. More information on the Vanderbilt Cup Races can be found on VanderbiltCupRaces.com created by Howard Kroplick, president of the Roslyn Landmark Society.

Respect. Tradition. Compassion. For four generations, New York’s Jewish Community has turned to Sinai Chapels for guidance and comfort in their time of need. We honor and respect all Jewish traditions and customs, attending to every funeral detail according to each family’s personal and religious preferences.

History of the Floral Park Public Library The community’s desire for a public library was evident in 1916. Funds were raised but it wasn’t until the Parent Teacher’s Association and community members in 1923 held a very successful tea that the idea became a reality. The guests were asked to bring “two books”. Many brought more than two books. The Village provided $1500. In addition, monetary gifts were accepted. The first library was located on South Tyson Avenue in the Knights of Columbus building which later became Koenig’s Restaurant and today Harrison Restaurant. The first year the library welcomed 768 borrowers and had circulation of 13,500 books.

constructed Floral Park Village Hall. The entrance to the Library was located where the Police Department entrance is today. Pictured is the word “Library” which was etched in concrete and hidden from view until recently when a restoration project revealed it. Above the entranceway is a concrete medallion with an open book displayed most likely installed at the time the library signage was created.

In 1936 the Floral Park Public Library (chartered in 1941) was housed in the west wing of the newly

The library was relocated in 1964 when the Village obtained the U.S. Post Office property at the corner of Caroline Place and Tulip Avenue.

History of the Hillside Public Library The Hillside Public Library is a school district library serving the New Hyde Park Union Free School District #5.The Hillside Public Library was first charted by New York State in 1961 where the library was housed in a wing of the Manor Oaks School. In 2003, voters approved a bond referendum for the purchase of the Kismet Temple building and the renovation of the building and site as a new public library facility. The library celebrated its 10th year anniversary in the new building this past March. Hillside Public Library is a place where everyone can go to improve their lives, where all generations are valued and have the opportunity to learn and expand their horizons.

The “Round House” constructed in 1905 is one of the oldest buildings in Floral Park. It is located at 70 Floral Parkway, at the corner of Floral Parkway and Carnation Avenue. It was named Round House because it has six sides. Over the years extensions have been added to the original building. The black and white photo dates back to 1908. The Round House served as the office of McCormack Real Estate and

the Windsor Land Company. The First Church of Christ, Scientist, purchased and adapted the property for its use in 1948. The first church service was held on February 9, 1948; the church was dedicated in January 1949. Over the years the Round House has been utilized as a meeting hall for groups such as the Floral Park American Legion. The building was also occupied as a home and currently used as the Citizens Presbyterian Church.

FLORAL PARK HISTORY

Floral Park “Home of Flowers” The history of Floral Park can be traced to 1874 when 17-yearold John Lewis Childs came to the hamlet known as East Hinsdale. The community at the time was part of Queens County, consisted of a small group of houses, one store, thee Hinsdale Postt Office and a railroad sta-tion. In 1899,, the County off Nassau wass formed and d Floral Park beecame part of it. t. Childs beecame an emmployee of C. L. Allen, who ho was a grower er of flowers and nd seeds. After er a year of appprenticeship, he went into busisiness for himmself. He rented ed a small track ack of land and began a seed and bulb business. He advertised his products in a one-page circular, thus starting the first seed catalog business in America. Over the next five years his business grew. Childs purchased land in East Hinsdale and Plainfield. Eventually, his enterprise would include hundreds of acres of gardens, several buildings and greenhouses. His publishing company, Mayflower

Press, printed millions of catalogs that were sent to thousands of customers worldwide. Childs realized that mail-order sales of bulbs, seeds and plants would bring in the most revenue. He established the Floral Post Office but “Floral” was used elsewhere in New York State so the name of the post office was changed to Floral Park Post Office, and in 1899, the railroad similarly changed the name of its station. The Village of Floral Park was formally incorporated on October 15, 1908. Two days later, 175 votes elected John vote Lewis Childs as President, along with two Trustees, George F. Dowling and John F. Klein. With the population increasing in 1910 to almost 800 people, a proposition was submitted to village voters recommending the addition of two trustees. It was voted down until 1922, when it was again submitted and passed. The title of President was changed to Mayor to 1927.

O’Shansky’s newspaper, comic book and card store was located at 142 Tulip Avenue. Harry O’Shansky, the owner, moved the business from its original spot on Jericho Turnpike. Over the years there have been a series of proprietors who ran stationery stores and even a small luncheonette at this location. Vita’s Pharmacy was next door. Eventually, the pharmacy and the stationery store were purchased and renovated into one eatery. Dee Dees Luncheonette was opened. Today, the thriving Floral Park Diner occupies the space.

The history of the Garden City Park Fire Department

Motorized equipment for firemen was unheard of when the Garden City Park Fire Department was organized in March of 1911 with a complement of 23 men and officers. The equipment consisted of a horse drawn combination hook and ladder and bucket brigade. The district was originally covered by New Hyde Park Fire District until the latter established its eastern boundary at Denton Avenue, shutting out Garden City Park. In 1917, the horses were replaced by a secondhand truck which pulled the same piece of apparatus until 1925. The company then purchased a secondhand pumper from Farmingdale which remained in service until 1927. Garden City Park was growing so a second company was formed in 1927 and headquarters moved to Jericho Turnpike. George Malvese was elected the first chief in 1927. Prior to that year the fire companies were under the direction of a foreman, Peter Krumhoz Sr. As the population continued to grow at a steady pace, it was found necessary to form a third company to service the area north of Hillside Avenue. A firehouse was set up on Denton Avenue, north of Hillside Avenue in 1938. A fourth company was added in 1943 and an Emergency Relief Squad in 1950. In 1961, the department consisted of 146 men and officers, equipped with the most modern firefighting apparatus including a 75-foot aerial ladder truck. The Garden City Park vamps provided fire protection for upwards of 5,000 families in one of the largest fire districts in Nassau County, and its district was bound on the north by I.U. Willets Road, south by Maple Drive to Denton Avenue, then south along Denton Avenue to the LIRR tracks. From that point the line extended east to Herricks Road, north to Hillside Avenue, east to Foch Boulevard and

G U I D E TO N E W H Y D E PA RK • J U N E 11, 2021

north again to Old Motor Parkway. An event that saddened the department was the accidental crash of an Army B-25 medium bomber in a Denton Avenue sand pit on the morning of Jan. 1, 1942, shortly after Pearl Harbor. The department responded to an alarm but there was little it could do beyond preventing flames from spreading to nearby homes. Five of the fliers aboard the plan perished when the pilot deliberately head the plan for the sand pit to avoid hitting the homes. A memorial service for the dead fliers was held in Notre Dame Catholic Church, New Hyde Park. A plaque erected to their memory still stands at New Hyde Park Road and Oak Drive, half a mile from the sand pit site. In all of the department’s 100 year history, no blaze was more spectacular than the fire that completely destroyed a one-and-a-half story brick and wood warehouse at 2145 Jericho Turnpike on New Year’s Eve in 1958. The building, occupied by the Globe Nassau Supply Co., was stocked with lumber, tar and roofing supplies. Damage was estimated at $500,000. The vamps battled in subfreezing weather for more than five hours to bring the flames under control. Several firemen suffered smoke poisoning and minor injuries. At one point flames shooting 65 feet in the air were visible five miles away. At that time, a major face-lifting job gave a brilliant “new look” to the Jericho Turnpike headquarters. The once drab meeting room on the second floor shined with new sparkle and luster. Renovation and alterations also were done to other parts of the building. “There is nothing like a renovation job to improve the men’s morale,” commented chief Kenneth Rodden. (as published in the Long island Daily Press, Vol. 1 No. 4, 1959) Information and photo provided by the Garden City Park Fire Department.


SOUTH FLORAL PARK

Village of South Floral Park History In 1643, on the 4th of July, a tribal chief put his mark on the deed for the land that would one day be known as Elmont. He negotiated with the Reverend Richard Delton and a group of English colonists for the purchase of the Hempstead Plains. This treaty stated that the land was to be enjoyed by the settlers and their heirs, forever, freely, firmly, quietly and peacefully. The purchase also included the areas known today as part of Valley Stream, Rosedale, Laurelton, and a good portion of Springfield Gardens, along with Bellerose. It was divided among the 66 original settlers, two of which were Thomas Foster & his brother Christopher. The Foster brothers named their part of the huge land purchase Foster’s Meadow. It was a long, flat land with endless green fields, great for farming, raising sheep, and hunting the wild game that inhabited the flatlands. Soon thereafter, the Foster brothers sold off sections to some farm families. In a ten-year period the population of Foster’s Meadow had only risen to eighteen families although it was a town filled with a network of old Indian trails, toll houses, & trolley lines that ran down a deserted Hempstead Turnpike. It wasn’t until the 1800’s that some real change took place. German farmers from Brooklyn made a journey to Foster’s Meadow to work the vast farmlands. In the late 1800’s a plank road was built on the area that is now Hempstead Turnpike, signaling a large rise in population. The planks for the old plank road were cut from local trees at a sawmill near what is now Thyben’s Saddlery. Additional growth was evident with the original schoolhouse built in 1865 on Elmont Road, now occupied by the Elmont Fire Department, to where children were driven by horse and buggy. As enrollment increased, South Floral Park children went to Belmont Blvd. School, now known as Clara H. Carlson, in honor of a dedicated educator. Again, the number of families increased and Covert Avenue School was constructed. (Later, in 1954, Stewart Manor School was constructed and to this day remains the school our children attend from K-6 th grade.) The village’s growth slowly continued and in 1918 the United Methodist Church of South Floral Park was built. The first pastor leading the congregation was Edgar Jackson who served from 1918-1922. Pastor Gustave Lass was leading a faithful congregation at the time of our incorporation. The church remains an integral and vibrant part of our community and it was later declared a historical site by Nassau County Planning Commission in 1976. In 1925, we saw the inception of a vision. A vision wide in scope and varied in purpose that would bear long reaching fruit; fording the gap from horse drawn trolley to state of the art technology while keeping the vision intact; the integrity unswerving in the pursuit of the American dream. And in that year, we became incorporated in 1925 as the Village of Jamaica

Square, because residents wanted their own government ruling on local issues that would apply solely to them. Until then, the village was mostly dirt roads and asparagus and potato farmland, with well water and outhouses, and no streetlights or electricity. William J. Ruppert was the first mayor (1925 – 1933) & while in office, the residents then totaling 600, agreed to rename the village in 1931 to South Floral Park. The adoption was signed and this newly-created South floral park village ran northeast of Jamaica square from Chelsea to Tennessee Street and from Memphis Avenue to Arthur Avenue. Additionally, seven block east and west avenues by four blocks north and south streets. Kingston Avenue area was a cow and sheep grazing field where one would go to get fresh milk. And even though it was developing with the installation of power lines and water pipes, men still hunted rabbits and the area was a secluded place for summer homes. Also, under Ruppert’s administration, the first firehouse was built which was later updated with the construction of the new village hall and fire house. The fire department was then-called the Jamaica Square Chemical & Hose Company #3 and the Ladies’ Auxiliary was created to support them by hosting fundraisers, setting up aid stations, and work events for seniors and children. William Hand (1933-1939) and William Sweeney (1939-1942) followed as mayors and in 1942 mayoral duties were passed to Barney Strup until 1966. By this time, the village consisted of 150 homes on 64 acres of land and it was under his direction and acquisition of a grant that the first village hall was built in 1953; and also the Highway Department and the Village Justice Court. To date, he is the longest-running mayor in office. William J. Hoffman was the next village mayor from 1966-1971. South Floral Park’s periodic newsletter, The Villager, debuted under the editorship of Mayor Hoffman. Next, was Mayor James Lorenzo from 1971-1990. Under Mayor Lorenzo’s administration, the Firemen’s Memorial Park was dedicated in 1974; the Save Our Community Coalition began; curbing, sidewalks, and road-paving projects started; and new technology and computers were brought in to the village hall. In addition, our current village administrator, Sally Ponce, was appointed by Mayor Lorenzo, and has served in the operation of day to day activities for 27 years. Additionally, in 1989, communityminded residents formed the Civic Association with Elva Soto as president. In addition to creating the Armed Forces Day Celebration in the village, the Civic Association erected a monument in 1991 on the village hall lawn dedicated to all those brave men & women who have served our country and “especially to those who have made the supreme sacrifice”. By 1990, the village’s first woman mayor was elected and held office until 2002. Mayor Arlene McMullen had been

a dedicated trustee before her run and afterwards served as The Villager’s editor until present-day. While Mayor McMullen was in office, South Floral Park and the neighboring three villages (Floral Park, Stewart Manor, and Bellerose) started a joint venture in developing the 4-Village Studio. Within a few years, the dream of having an exclusive cable channel for the four villages became a reality. Toni Warren became the liaison on the Cable Committee and she continues to volunteer for the network today. In 2001, during the most trying time in our nation’s history, the residents of South Floral Park once again showed how willing they were to give of themselves. The days following September 11, were tragic ones for everyone. Our firefighters and paramedics showed the true spirit of the volunteerism as they worked tirelessly at the ravaged site of the World Trade Center. History was made a second time in 2002 with the election of Angel Soto, South Floral Park’s first Hispanic mayor. Mayor Soto, a very active member of the community, had served as Chairman of the Nassau County Emergency Management Office and Chairman of the Water Authority of Western Nassau. While in office, he

arranged for a memorial site dedicated to the late Mayor Lorenzo and he began a project to facilitate the installation of a generator for the village hall and fire department buildings in case of any emergency power outages. In 2010, Geoffrey N. Prime made history again in being elected the first black mayor of South Floral Park. Under Mayor Prime’s administration, the installation of the generator was completed and the village’s website was created and launched. This website will prove to be a direct tie to the residents & provide them with an abundance of village information for every-day living. The village anxiously awaits Mayor Prime’s upcoming achievements. In view of the many changes, the Village has prospered and grown since 1925--Always guided by the same vision, the same hopes, and the same dedication. This, making the Village of South Floral Park a true mark in the pages of history that celebrates the achievements of the American Dream. Let us go forth and continue to make our village a great place to live. Information provided by Village of South Floral Park. www.southfloralpark.org
