Jackson Heights was farmland when the Queensboro Bridge opened in 1908 connecting Manhattan to Queens and prompting entrepreneur Edward A. MacDougall to buy as many farms as possible along the planned subway route. His Queensboro Corporation developed Jackson Heights, creating unique and popular garden co-ops and private homes, which were inspired by Britain’s Garden City movement. After World War II new developments were more densely populated, and an original golf course was paved over.

Jackson Heights offers something that most Queens neighborhoods don’t: appealing older housing stock. Many of the apartments and co-ops in its extensive historic district feature private gardens. Many of the prewar co-ops boast shared, private gardens, each about a city block in length. The gardens are open to the public once a year for an event run by the JHBG.

More than half of its residents are immigrants, particularly Colombians, other Latinos, and South Asians, with its own Little India. Jackson Heights flourished in the 1920s with unique garden co-ops that attracted middle-class professionals escaping overcrowded and overpriced Manhattan. Today, for similar reasons, Jackson Heights has again become a hot neighborhood and real estate market.
