This park is named in honor of Abram D. Ditmars (1822-1899), an Astoria native who served as the first mayor of Long Island City. Ditmars was born in Newtown, New York on February 14, 1822 and attended public schools in the area. He later studied law under the auspices of John L. Riker and was admitted to the bar in 1844. In addition to beginning a career in law, Ditmars pursued a lucrative business as a real-estate dealer and was an active member of the Holland Society.
