Floral Park was known as East Hinsdale in 1874, when John Lewis Childs arrived there to work for C.L. Allen as a seed seller. After building his own seed and bulb business, and starting America's first seed catalogue business, Childs bought the land around the Hinsdale Post Office; to promote his own business and the local horticultural industry, Childs named the local streets after flowers and renamed the area Floral Park. The Post Office (its work dominated by Childs' catalogue busines) soon took the Floral Park name, and the Long Island Rail Road followed suit by changing the name of the East Hinsdale station to Floral Park in 1888. Formerly part of Queens, New York, Floral Park became part of the new county of Nassau in 1899, and it was incorporated as a village, with Childs as its president, in 1908.
The western village boundary is the border of New York City.
Floral Park is located at 40.722427, -73.703207.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 3.5 km˛ (1.4 mi˛), all land.
