Bayside is a neighborhood in the borough of Queens in New York City, New York in the United States. It is one of New York's most ethnically diverse commuter towns, though inside the City limits.
Bayside's history dates back to 2000 B.C., when the Matinecock Native American tribe first settled there. In the Late 17th century, the area was settled by English colonists. By the middle of the 18th century, early settlers left their homes in Flushing and developed a farming community, Bay Side. During the Revolutionary War, the Bayside-Little Neck area suffered from raids by whaleboatmen from the Connecticut shores. In one of the raids, the Talman house was attacked and the miller was killed.In the 19th century Bayside was still mostly farmland. Middle 20th century urban sprawl, with the help of better roads, suburbanized it. During the 1920s many rich actors and actresses, such as Rudolph Valentino, lived in Bayside. Because of its close location to the city, it was a perfect place to live, not too urban or suburban
