In the 17th century, the community now known as Jericho was established as a plantation. At the beginning of the twentieth century the Quaker farms in the area were divided, and development began. Today there are still a number of historic buildings and homes in Jericho, as well as many open spaces like those found at the MeadowBrook Golf Club. Along the downtown streets there are many great restaurants and shops, and to the west is the hamlet of Old Westbury which encompasses three universities’ campuses and the famous Old Westbury Golf Club. Additional shopping, dining, and entertainment options are conveniently accessible for Jericho residents in nearby Hicksville, Roslyn, and Woodbury. And despite being landlocked, Jericho is less than twenty minutes from several public beaches.
The Long Island Rail Road and the Long Island Expressway make traveling to New York City easy, as the City is less than thirty miles west of Jericho. Also nearby and easily accessible is the Village of Muttontown. Muttontown is approximately thirty-one miles east of Manhattan, also situated in the Town of Oyster Bay on Long Island’s North Shore. This Nassau County village is part of the Locust Valley area on the “Gold Coast,” and is ranked among the nation’s wealthiest towns. Muttontown real estate is comprised of gorgeous homes sitting on sprawling private plots.
