Northeastern Queens: Auburndale

Auburndale is an upper middle class, predominantly Asian neighborhood located in Northern Queens, bounded by 162nd St, 48th Ave, Francis Lewis Boulevard & 32nd Ave. Auburndale was named in 1901 after the hometown of its developer L.H. Green, Auburndale, Massachusetts. The Auburndale Long Island Rail Road station was built in 1901, and is the reason the town was created.

In 2009, Martins Field on 46th Ave, was renamed Olde Towne of Flushing Burial Ground honoring hundreds of African Americans & Native Americans buried there in the 1800’s.
