The gem like area of Rosedale lies in the hearts of the people who live here. One has to view with patience and observe how residents spend their time, and separate between the transactions that take place inside its grate, to uncover Rosedale’s true character. It was in 1910, when southern Queens was mostly farmland dotted with small towns. The Long Island Rail Road was already well-established by then; the Springfield station was eliminated in 1939 when grade crossings in this part of town were eliminated.

The former and merged names of Rosedale include Foster’s Meadow. It was named by an early British settler John Foster, as was the Long Island Rail Road station when the railroad arrived in the late 1800s. The only road through the meadows, now an undeveloped part of Brookville Park, was known as Old Foster’s Meadow Road until it was renamed Brookville Boulevard in the 1920s. The neighborhood is presently served by the Laurelton station, with the town of Springfield absorbed by the new Laurelton Land Company real-estate development in the early 20th Century.
