Bayside is a lustrous high-end neighborhood in Queens, New York, nestled in the eastern portion of Flushing. Considered one of the wealthiest communities in Queens, the history surrounding this area dates as far back as 2,000 B.C.E. with the Matinecock Native American tribe inhabiting the region. Sometime in the late 17th Century, English settlers began to colonize the area. Nevertheless, in the 18th Century, these immigrants would leave their homes and develop a farming community in the area known as Bay Side. Furthermore, as the Revolutionary War raged on, sailors from whaleboats docked in Connecticut would raid the homes in the Bayside-Little Neck area. It would be in the 20th Century that the sprawl of New York City and its growing public transportation system breathed new life into Bayside.
