From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bayswater is a small neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens, on the eastern end of the Rockaway Peninsula. The community is located to the northeast of Far Rockaway, along the southeastern shore of Jamaica Bay. The neighborhood is part of Queens Community Board 14.[1]

One of Bayswater's early developers was William Trist Bailey, who had purchased the property and laid out the community circa 1878.[2] Once the location of a number of summer hotels such as the Elstone Park and the Sunset Lodge, Bayswater is now a year-round residential neighborhood. Bayswater has a diverse population with large numbers of African American and Orthodox Jewish residents.
