Heading north bring us into the known as Auburndale. It goes from Peck Ave, with the LIE (I-495), to 26th Ave between Utopia Pkwy, with Auburndale La and 46th Ave, and the Clearview Expwy (I-295). This hood is mostly residential. In the 1600's, it was granted to English colonists by Governor Willem Kieft. In 1798, it was made as part of Bay Side. Thomas Willet had his farm here for much of the 1800's. In 1867, the Flushing & North Side RR was created to allow for trains to come here. In 1901, the New England Developement/Improvement Co purchased the farm and created a new area known as Auburndale, after Auburn, MA. At the same time the LIRR decided to give Auburndale its own station, and it was moved to its present day location by the Episcopal Church in 1930. Much of its houses that are here today came in the postwar era, though there were some that are prewar as well. A lot of times Auburndale is associated with either Flushing or Bayside. You can get here by taking the Pt Washington Branch of the LIRR to the Auburndale Station. Here is what you will find in Auburndale.
