Town of Jamaica

With Bob Singleton

The Town of Jamaica is now part of Queens county, but a study of it offers a rich opportunity for an urban experience in a place that is dynamic yet underexplored. The one time center of a trading network that extended to the Ohio Valley, the colonial county seat of Queens, and more recently a transit and commercial center, it is now home to a diverse mix of people. Our tour guide, Bob Singleton of the Greater Astoria Historical Society, will examine its rich past and present.

All tours are Eastern Time Zone. Registration is now closed.
