The Bayside area has been inhabited since around 2000 B.C.E. In those early years the inhabitants were indigenous people of the Matinecock tribes. English colonists arrived and began to settle in the area in the late 1600s. By the mid-1700s the area was home to a farming settlement. It largely remained farmland throughout the 1800s. The 20th century saw the area becoming developed. There was even an influx of people from the movie industry as the area became more fashionable. It has been home to many organized crime figures and families like the Gambino family and the Luccheese family. It has also seen perhaps more than it’s fair share of mob activities. Bayside has also been home to several notable, non-criminals, like comedian and actor W.C. Fields, actors and acrtresses like  Richard Dreyfuss, Rudolph Valentino, Charlie Chaplin, Gloria Swanson and others.
