Flushing Meadows Land Reclamation search brought up a good site that I don’t know how these links’ copyrights’ work very well and some of the sites’ addresses say they aren’t secure and I don’t know what that means yet, so his good site on this subject is MichaelMinn.net/newyork/parks/flushing-meadows-corona-park/index, and I usually have nearly not any time for reading other people’s materials more than necessary and they don’t for mine either I’d guess, etc., but his site mentions the 1645 Dutch town of Vlissingen that Flushing had started as I’d guess and like they’d done the dikes land reclamation in the Netherlands then this land fill or what had begun there in that Long Island Sound at the north of what became Queens County and all.
