The local borough government of Douglaston, New York.
An Overview of Queens County Government in Douglaston, NY

Douglaston, NY is officially a community area inside Queens, New York. Queens is a borough in New York and is part of Queens County. Ever since the year 1898, the borough has been governed by the New York City Charter, which has a mayor and council system. The current borough president is Helen Marshall. Borough Hall is currently the seat of government.

Currently, Gary Ackerman represents the fifth district of the borough. Each of the five counties has a court system in place and a DA. What about Douglaston government specifically? Douglaston is made up of six neighborhoods and is part of the Queens Community Board. The Douglas Manor Association is the community’s most important civic group. The Douglas Manor Association was created in the early 1900s when the Rickert-Finlay Realty Company of Manhattan purchased pioneer George Douglas’ family holdings and pursued a community vision.

The New York City's Landmarks Preservation Commission has protected Douglas Manor or the “Douglaston Historic District” for quite some time now. The New York City Department of Parks and Recreation also owns part of the land, particularly the waterfront Alley Pond Park area, which is over 600 acres devoted to wildlife and avian sanctuary land. If you are trying to reach government officials in the community then the safest bet is the Queens county government.

The Queens Borough President can be reached at 120-55 Queens Boulevard in Kew Gardens, NY 11424. The actual community of Douglaston is governed by local Queens Community Board 11, which also governs Bayside, Auburndale, Oakland Gardens, Little Neck, East Flushing and Hollis Hills.

You can learn more about government operations in Douglaston, Queens by visiting the official community website. This is a community very active in socializing and in historical research.
