The neighborhood derives its name from the Laurelton Station on the Long Island Rail Road, which was named for the laurels that grew there in the early 19th century. Laurelton then followed its peers of Queens to shift from farming to residence for immigrant families, even though in less dramatic and well-known manner in the 1920s and 1930s. It has a tradition of welcoming immigrants trying to find their US feet when the neighborhood began to take shape as a place for large numbers of families to live. Laurelton is in close proximity to Manhattan, with Penn Station less than an hour away.
