Jamaica Avenue was an ancient trail for tribes from as far away as the Ohio River and the Great Lakes, coming to trade skins and furs for wampum.[3] It was in 1655 that the first settlers paid the Native Americans with two guns, a coat, and some powder and lead, for the land lying between the old trail and "Beaver Pond," later, Baisley Pond. Dutch Director-General Peter Stuyvesant dubbed the area "Rustdorp" in granting the 1656 patent.

However since then, the government reaction towards fighting crime in the area as well as the significantly dropping crime rate itself has provided a safe haven to potential entrepreneurs who plan to invest in the area. The real estate boom in New York City has greatly affected the residents of Jamaica Queens also. Real estate prices in the area have sky-rocketed and the rate of constructing new 1-3 family homes is ever increasing to fill the demand. The Greater Jamaica Development Corporation(GJDC) has taken huge steps toward reviving the economy of Jamaica. RadioShack and Old Navy have recently opened along Jamaica Avenue. A new $75 million deal with Home Depot clears the way for creation of new branch. Retail and commercial development is being extended along Sutphin Boulevard from Jamaica Ave. with recently approved rezoning methods of existing blocks in downtown Jamaica. Sutphin Boulevard has received a massive proposal to convert the area into an airport village with a mixture of hotels, restaurants and highrises surrounding the AirTrain station which was built in 2003.
