Powell’s Cove Park was completed in 1999 on an East River bay with sizable wetlands and filled uplands. The Queens neighborhood of College Point borders on the west and Malba borders on the east. The first known European resident of the area was David Roe who arrived from England in the 1640s. In 1786 John Powell purchased the 87-acre parcel. It’s believed that the Roe family lost the land for their allegiance to the crown during the Revolutionary War.
