Northeastern Queens: Malba

Malba is an upperclass sub neighborhood of Whitestone Queens. Its name is derived from the 1st five letters of the surnames of the five founders of the Malba Land Company: Maycock, Alling, Lewis, Bishop & Avis.

Pictured is the Malba security station located on Malba Drive. Malba is an exclusive private community which charges each resident $325 dollars a year to maintain a private security detail and to tend to its three commonly owned triangles.

In 2011, ex-NY Mets player Roberto Alomar sold his 15 room mansion for $2.8 million dollars.
