Douglaston Historic District, Douglaston, Queens, New York City, New York, United States

INTRODUCTION

The Douglaston Historic District contains more than 600 houses set along landscaped streets on a mile-long peninsula extending into Little Neck Bay, at the northeastern edge of Queens adjoining Nassau County.

Its history over the past four centuries ranges from a native American settlement to an eighteenth-century farm, a nineteenth-century estate called Douglas Manor, and an early twentieth-century planned suburb, also called Douglas Manor.

The Douglaston Historic District encompasses the entire Douglas Manor suburban development, plus several contiguous blocks. Most of the houses in the proposed district date from the early- to mid-twentieth century, while a few survive from the nineteenth century, and one from the eighteenth century.

The landscape includes many impressive and exotic specimen trees planted on the mid-nineteenth-century estate, as well as a great white oak, located at 233 Arleigh Road, believed to be 600 years old.

Douglaston’s location on a peninsula jutting into Flushing Bay at the eastern border of Queens County is an important factor in establishing the character of the district. The very early buildings surviving in the district include the c.1735 Van Wyck House, the c. 1819 Van Zandt manor house (expanded in the early twentieth century for use as the Douglaston Club), and the Greek Revival style c. 1848-50 Benjamin Allen House.

Much of the landscaping, including the specimen trees, survives from the estate of Douglas Manor, established by George Douglas and maintained by his son William Douglas.

Most of the houses in the historic district were built as part of the planned suburb of Douglas Manor, developed by the Rickert-Finlay Company, that was part of the residential redevelopment of the Borough of Queens following its creation and annexation to the City of Greater New York in 1898.

A set of covenants devised by the Rickert-Finlay Company helped assure a carefully planned environment, including a shorefront held in common, winding streets following the topography of the peninsula, and single-family houses ranging in size from substantial mansions along Shore Road on the west to more modest cottages closer to Udalls Cove on the east.

The houses of the historic district, which are representative of twentieth-century residential architecture, were designed in a variety of styles including the many variants of the Colonial Revival, many houses in the English manner incorporating Tudor Revival, English cottage, and Arts and Crafts motifs, as well as the Mediterranean Revival. In most cases, they were designed by local Queens architects, including over a dozen who lived in Douglaston itself.

The district includes three houses of the Craftsman type pioneered by Gustav Stickley. Eight of the houses in the district were designed by Josephine Wright Chapman, one of America’s earliest successful women architects, and they constitute an important body of her work.

The Douglaston Historic District survives today as an important example of an early twentieth-century planned suburb adapted to the site of a nineteenth-century estate. The stylistically varied suburban residences, the distinctive topography, the landscaped setting, and the winding streets create a distinct sense of place and give the district its special character.

HISTORICAL AND ARCHITECTURAL BACKGROUND OF THE DOUGLASTON HISTORIC DISTRICT

Native American and Colonial antecedents

The Native American presence on the Little Neck peninsula today known as Douglaston included the Matinecoc,1 one of a group on western Long Island linked by culture and language to others in the area surrounding Manhattan Island (including the Nayack, Marechkawieck, Canarsee, Rockaway, and Massapequa). A number of finds from those settlements have been identified at various sites on the peninsula.2 The Matinecoc, who fanned the peninsula and apparently also produced wampum, were summarily evicted in the 1660s by Thomas Hicks, later Judge Hicks, in what has been described as the only such seizure of property recorded in Flushing town records. In the 1930s, according to local histories, a Matinecoc burial ground was destroyed to make way for a widening of Northern Boulevard, and the remains reinterred in the cemetery of Zion Church.3

The property seized by Thomas Hicks in the 1660s passed through the hands of several of his family members, and several subsequent sales to other families, before being acquired in 1813 by Wynant Van Zandt. In 1819 Van Zandt bought an adjoining farm from the Van Wyck family. Both tracts had been farmed during the eighteenth century. The Van Wycks built and lived in a shorefront house which still stands (the Cornelius Van Wyck House, at 126 West Drive aka 37-04 Douglaston Parkway, a designated New York City landmark).

Outdoor Living Space

Outdoor Living Space
This project was designed to fit the homeowner’s desire for a private, Tuscan outdoor dining retreat. The themed kitchen demanded appropriate accent pieces such as cast iron furniture and outdoor fabrics in various shades of wines, reds and golds and focal structures in striking combinations of weathered creme and burgundy stones. The Tuscany Brick Oven from Harmony Outdoor Living, Inc. was designed as the central structure from which everything else was placed. The brick oven was built with Brussels Dimensional and Copthorne stones for an antique appearance, and it rests on a convenient wooden storage box that elevates the oven to an ideal cooking level. The surrounding pieces to the brick pizza oven include an outdoor grill and full bar made of the same stones. This homeowner chose to further enhance the ambiance of his outdoor setting with soft lighting and a pergola handcrafted by Harmony Outdoor Living, Inc. from rough cedar.

Shade Sails are the most cost effective shade solution per square foot! Shade Sails protect and shade your outdoor areas. Also known as Sun Sails, shade sails make beautiful additions to your patio, backyard, or other outdoor areas, while providing excellent protection from the sun and its harmful UV radiation. A chic shade sail is the perfect alternative to a traditional pergola or covered porch. Floating and curvaceous, Shade Sails make an attractive addition to any property, and with the right design, they can enhance the existing property with artistic or architectural flair and style.

Sail Shades are wonderfully versatile; they can be attached to homes, fences, trees, or patio columns. In addition, they can be supported by wood posts or steel columns embedded in concrete footings. They can easily be taken down seasonally if necessary.

Shade Sails are the ultimate in stylish sun protection. You can creatively design your own little shady area in a courtyard, pool, gardens, childrens’ play areas, car spaces, and even entry ways.

The perimeter of each sail is designed with a gentle cantenary curve inwards toward the center of the sail to control the fabric tension. Shade sails have reinforced webbing around the perimeter, and steel D or “Delta” rings at each corner. When properly tensioned, shade sail fabric will not wrinkle, sag, or flap in the wind.

The heavy duty Polyethylene material will keep you cool and out of the hot sun. This unique state-of-the-art mesh material will block the sun’s UV rays, and will withstand damages caused by moisture and natural temperature extremes. Washable with regular soap and water. Heavy duty design will not droop or sag. Won’t grow mold or mildew and completely durable through all seasons.

This Sun Shade has a specialized lock-stitch knit that creates raised channels that catch and pull air underneath, while providing the ultimate in strength and durability.
