The Floral Park NY Tyson Building Historical Marker # 10. The oldest commercial building was built by George Tyson in 1894 and housed the post office.

107 South Tyson Avenue is the oldest commercial building in the Village of Floral Park. It is set in the middle of what is as the“Tyson Block.”

 

George I. Tyson, a major property owner in early Floral Park, built this large, impressive commercial building around 1894. The wood frame building that was originally constructed at this site burned down and was promptly rebuilt of brick by Tyson.

 

In 1900, the first floor was occupied by the Post Office, Wright’s General Store, Loew’s Butcher Shop and Theodore Fishelli’s Barber Shop.

 

From 1908 until 1918, the building was the first home of the Floral Park Bank. The Floral Park Market, owned by L. Levy, and The Gateway newspaper also rented office space.

 

Today, there are rental apartments on the second and third floors and “storefront” rental space on the first floor occupied by local businesses and the Floral Park Historical Society Museum and Archives.
