The Crocheron family lived on the edge of Little Neck Bay for centuries. The first family member to live in the area was John Crocheron, a farmer whose will dates from 1695. His long line of distinguished descendents include: Henry Crocheron, a Congressman from 1815 to 1817; Jacob Crocheron, a Congressman from 1829 to 1831; Nicholas Crocheron, a member of the 1854 State Assembly; and Joe Crocheron, a horse racer and gambler who was as renowned as Cornelius Vanderbilt and August Belmont.

Starting September 5, there will be no 28 Avenue overpass access or access to the Marina north to Fort Totten (from Northern Boulevard) due to renovation work on Joe Michaels Mile. Patrons can access the Bayside Marina and the 28 Avenue overpass from Totten Avenue. This first phase will take several months. Once the first phase is complete, the entire path from Northern Boulevard to the 28 Avenue overpass will be completely closed to the public. The north section of Joe Michaels Mile between the 28 Avenue Overpass and Fort Totten will be open throughout. Updates will be posted here when available. We apologize for any inconvenience. Total project duration is one year.
