St. Albans is a middle class neighborhood in southeastern Queens, with a very rich and diverse history. There’s small enclave in St. Albans to the west of Addisleigh Park that housed notable African Americans, including Jackie Robinson, W.E.B Dubois, and more than a handful of influential musicians. These musicians included the likes of Miles Davis, James Brown, LL Cool J, and A Tribe Called Quest. During the 1970’s and 1980’s a huge surge of hip hop artists emerged from St. Albans and its surrounding area. The national historic district of Addisleigh Park was once a segregated housing district only allowing whites but as of today it is a predominantly affluent black neighborhood.
