Garvies Point Heart of Glen Cove

History of Garvies Point

All of the land around Garvies point had been looked for recreation and commerce since the colonists settled in Glen Cove in 17th century. Dr. Garvie, the namesake of the area, was mining for clay to use in pottery in 1810. During this time, all of the area where today’s Garvies Point Road lies is undeveloped beach and wetlands.

One of the greatest accomplishments of Dr. Garvie created a steamboat ferry service between Glen Cove and New York City. This brought weekend vacationers who helped support boarding houses, stores, taverns and oyster saloons. During that time Glen Cove’s waterfront was popular between wealthy industrial. All of the area around the Glen Cove Creek became home to local industries. In 1850s, the area became full of stores, apartments and newspaper. Today, Garvies Point is being renovated to once again become a thriving gateway

The area around Glen Cove Creek was also home to thriving local industries. Beginning in the 1850s, the Glen Cove Starch Works transformed the district into a company town with its own stores, apartments and newspaper. In the 20th century, the land was occupied by businesses producing items such as typewriter ribbons, carbon paper and graphic arts film. Today, Garvies Point is once again poised to be a vibrant gateway and mixed-use community for all of Glen Cove.
