Elmhurst, Queens, New York, USA

The village of Newtown was established as the town seat for the township in 1683.

Cord Meyer bought land at Broadway and Whitney Avenue in 1896. He proposed that the town be renamed "Elmhurst", meaning "a grove of elms"; in 1897, one year before Queens County was incorporated in the Greater City of New York, the town was renamed.
