New Hyde Park

New Hyde Park
Beginnings: Irish Thomas Dongan, appointed New York's royal governor by King James II in 1682, was so popular a change from his predecessors that the Towns of Hempstead and Flushing decided to give him 900 acres in what is now the North New Hyde Park area for a summer home. Dongan built a mansion on what is now Lakeville Road in 1688, but didn't have long to enjoy it. James was toppled by anti-Catholic forces, and Dongan fled to New England and then to Ireland in 1691.
