Malba Real Estate

Picture of Malba

Within the larger neighborhood of Whitestone is the quant enclave of Malba. Despite its traditionally low profile, Malba, a small (about 400 houses) residential waterfront neighborhood contains some of the most expensive private homes in Queens. The neighborhood got its name from the first letters of the surnames of its five founders: Maycock, Alling, Lewis, Bishop, and Avis. Malba borders the 17 acre Francis Lewis Park with its East River views and beach access and where fishing is still permitted under the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge. To preserve the community's quiet residential character and prevent commercial development, the Malba Association set limits on where houses could be built and kept title to the beachfront land. The association uses these voluntary membership dues to maintain a private security patrol and to tend the waterfront and common areas. Even the streets of Malba were privately owned until the 1980s, when they were turned over to the city. There is virtually no commercial property in the neighborhood. In addition to mid-century homes, you'll find stucco-sided colonials and Tudors from the 1920s.
