Fresh Meadows, New York, at one point in time was nothing more than wetlands in the hills located near Flushing. Though most of the area featured salt meadows, the area now known as Fresh Meadows was fed by freshwater springs. This quaint residential neighborhood in Queens, New York, used to serve as an encampment and training grounds for the British military during the time of the Revolutionary War, with General Benedict Arnold using the very spot where the MS 216 George J. Ryan Middle School is presently located to drill his troops. The New York Life Insurance Company bought the land in 1946 and turned it into the Fresh Meadows Housing Development to accommodate World War II veterans.
