Forgotten #148: Udall’s Cove – Douglaston Queens
August 11 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm$20
You’d never believe you’re in New York City as we first take a look at the Westmoreland development in Little Neck, a distinct neighborhood protected from overdevelopment by neighborhood covenants; then literally cross the railroad tracks into Udall’s Cove and Aurora Park, and then into Douglaston to visit a pair of historic houses going back to the revolutionary period; and on to a historic church and cemetery containing Native American relics. (with special guest Sergey Kadinksy of Hidden Water Blog)

Take Long Island Rail Road to Little Neck ($9 round trip from Manhattan via LIRR CityTicket weekends) or #7 train to Main Street, then get Q12 bus on Roosevelt Avenue to Little Neck Parkway, walk 6 blocks north to 39th Avenue. The 11:18 train from Penn Station arrives in Little Neck approximately 11:50.
