Jamica Estates

Can anyone tell me when this area was first developed. I recall back in the 1960's this was one of the wealthy sections of NYC?

Thanks

Re: Jamica Estates

I don't know about Floyd Patterson but Donald Trump definitely lived in Jamaica Estates on Midland Parkway. He never socialized with the other kids in the neighborhood. He was always away at a private school somewhere.
