The upper-class community of Little Neck is considered to be one of few suburban-looking neighborhoods left in the city of Queens. Before Dutch and English settlers began to move into the area in the mid-1600s, the land comprising Queens had been inhabited by the Matinecock Native American tribe since around 2,000 B.C.E.. In the mid-1700s, Dutch and English settlers garnered a deal to acquire the land now known as Little Neck from the Matinecock, while the tribe maintained control of Madnan's Neck. Settlers back then found much success dealing produce at the Manhattan market. In 1866, the Little Neck Long Island Rail Road station opened in Little Neck in order to serve the growing population.
