Queens was not always the densely settled borough it is today. Agriculture played a large role in the history of the county, and many farms remained in eastern Queens until the mid-20th century. In many cases, family farmers grew produce that was sold at the markets of New York and Brooklyn. Take a look back at Queens' more pastoral times in this gallery.
