History

A big turnpoint in Plainview history has been the arrival of the railroad in Hicksville around 1837, which opened up the vast markets Queens, New York City and Brooklyn to the local Manetto Hill farmers.  Along with the opening of the brickswork near Old Bethpage in 1860, which attracted even more people in the area. The opening of the brickworks in nearby Old Bethpage in the 1860's attracted more people to the area. Around 1885, the community of Manetto Hill asked for a post office, but were turned down on the grounds that community upstate with a similar name already used the post office name. The following year, residents of Manetto Hill decided to rename their community into what we today know as Plainview. Early 20th Century saw a downfall in agriculture, major crops of potatoes and cucumbers, but by the time World War II was over, and farmers regained a hold of their crops and were ready to sell. After that, Plainview population grew exponentially, from 1155 residents back in 1950 to a whopping 35.000 merely  a decade later.
