The history of Port Washington
dates back to the 17th century when a small group of English settlers
acquired land from the Dutch in a region flanked by beautiful bodies
of water. The Dutch, claiming that Henry Hudson's voyages in 1609
gave them the rights to Long Island, had purchased what amounts
to the western half of Nassau County from the Matinecocks, members
of the Algonquin tribes who inhabited much of the North Shore of
Long Island. Sint Sink, "Place of Many Stones," was the
name that the Matinecocks gave to this neck of land nestled between
scenic Hempstead Harbor and Manhasset Bay.
The first English
settlers eyed the new land as a cow pasture for their cattle, fencing
off 8,000 acres from what is now Roslyn to Plandome to keep the
cattle on the peninsula. The five-mile-long fencing consisted of
"gattes", or panels, each 11 feet long. The settlers were
allowed to pasture one cow for every gatte they constructed. Not
surprisingly, the peninsula became known as Cow Neck, and the bay
on the west side ( Now Manhasset Bay) was called Cow Bay. Movers
