The Woodhaven community can attribute its growth to Jamaica Avenue that in the early 1800's was a toll road. Many wealthy individuals had summer estates in Woodhaven. It was home to the Union Course Raceway. The area contains a well-maintained housing stock of one and two-family homes. Today, the Jamaica Avenue shopping strip, part of a successful BID, is well-known throughout Queens.
