Douglaston, Queens, New York, New York

Shore Rd.

"Here Rest the Last of the Matinecoc"

1819 Douglaston Club

Douglaston is hardly what one imagines as Queens.  Childhood home of pro tennis players John and Patrick McEnroe as well as Mary Carillo, Douglaston also is graced with an 1819 Greek Revival mansion built by Wynant Van Zandt, serving as the Douglaston Club.  The Zion Episcopal Church cemetery has a mass grave site for the Matinecoc Indians who once farmed the area.
