History

The glacial action that formed much of Long Island deposited Shelter Rock in what is now North Hills approximately 11,000 years ago. The Matinecock had a village in the area. Farming developed in North Hills in mid 17th century. Around this time a long fence was built along the road later known as Northern Boulevard, to the North of North Hills. The lands of the Cow Neck peninsula enclosed by the fence (present day Manhasset and Port Washington) were used for grazing. Later, in the 19th century, one of the largest farms in the area was owned by I.U. Willets.[2]
