Springfield Gardens is a neighborhood in the southeastern area of the New York City borough of Queens, bounded to the north by St. Albans, to the east by Laurelton & Rosedale, to the south by John F. Kennedy International Airport, and to the west by Farmers Boulevard. The area was first settled by Europeans in 1660, and was subsequently farmed until the mid nineteenth-century.
Most of the main residential development came in the 1920s as Long Island Rail Road service was expanded to the area at the Springfield Gardens station. Farmers Boulevard, Merrick Boulevard, Springfield Boulevard, Rockaway Boulevard, and Guy R. Brewer Boulevard all are major streets in the area. Many of the homes now are being torn down and made for more families as more people are moving in and overpopulating the neighborhood.
