The name “Whitestone” comes from the white limestone that lines the shore, and was given to the area by Dutch settlers in the early 17th century.
It is historically associated with the estate of Francis Lewis, a famous delegate of the Continental Congress and signer of the Declaration of Independence. After Lewis’s time Whitestone became known as Clintonville, after former Governor of New York Dewitt Clinton.learn more about this neighborhood
