Take a walk back in time in hidden Bayside ‘Alley’

“On this discovery walk we will examine how Alley Pond was formed and visit Alley Creek, a tidal creek that allowed access to this early settlement,” said Aline Euler, APEC education director and tour leader. “We will visit the site of the house of the first inhabitant, Thomas Foster, who built his home on land given to him by a land grant. The village also contained a mill and Buhrman’s General store. We will trace the names and the lives of the people of the Alley and discuss what happened to this beautiful place in the 20th Century and why it happened.”

For further information call the society at 718-939-0647, Ext. 17.

As the only boroughwide historical society in Queens, QHS documents, preserves and presents rich and diverse aspects of the history of the borough for the education and enlightenment of the general public.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the Parks Foundation/Mellon Foundation.
