Malba is neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens. Malba is bounded to the north by the East River, to the east by the Whitestone Expressway, to the south by 15th Avenue, and to the west by 138th Street. Its name is derived from the first letters of the surnames of its five founders.
The first known resident of the area known as present-day Malba, was David Roe, who arrived from England in the 1640s. According to Clarence Almon Torrey, in his book "David Roe Of Flushing And Some Of His Descendants," Roe probably became a resident of Flushing around 1666. In 1683, he was taxed upon owning 35 acres and thereafter increased his holdings substantially, ultimately acquiring the upland around what was to become Malba. Roe's farm was on the east side of the bay, which was then known as "Roe's Cove." Roe was among the well-to-do citizens of Flushing, owning lands, farm stock, carpenter's tools and two slaves.
