Malba is a neighborhood in north central Queens, bounded to the north by the East River (Powell's Cove), to the east by the Whitestone Expressway, to the south by 15th Avenue, and to the west by 138th Street. Its name is derived from the first letters of the surnames of the five founders, all residents of New Haven, Connecticut: George A. Maycock, Samuel R. Avis, George W. Lewis, Nobel P. Bishop, and David R. Alling. The land was acquired in 1883 by William Ziegler, president or the Royal Baking Powder Company; a subsidiary, the Realty Trust Company, developed 163 acres (sixty-six hectares) in 1908 for wealthy boaters and fishermen, and in the same year railroad service was extended. There were thirteen houses by the time of the First World War and more than a hundred were built in the 1920s. The railroad station closed in 1932. In the mid 1990s Malba had about four hundred houses, ranging in value from $500,000 to $1 million; a group of homeowners, the Malba Association, attends to the interests or the neighborhood.
