Nassau County, which lies along the western side of Long Island, New York, is one of America’s wealthiest counties and home to roughly 1.3 million people. Nassau became a county in 1899, having previously been part of eastern Queens County. Today the county is comprised of three towns, Hempstead, Oyster Bay, and North Hempstead, and two cities, Glen Cove and Long Beach. However, those three towns encompass nearly twelve dozen lovely little hamlets and villages. Roslyn and East Hills are two such communities.
Roslyn is perched in the hills of the Gold Coast of Long Island. It is a picturesque historic village on Hempstead Harbor known for its vibrant downtown, historic landmarks, and beautifully restored buildings and houses. Homes for sale and rent in Roslyn have listing prices that fall in a broad range because of the variety of home styles, sizes, ages, and amenities. Most Roslyn properties afford quick and convenient access to the village’s many public sites, including the 16-acre Gerry Park which features a cute duck pond and a charming gazebo where residents are welcome to enjoy the serene views. Along with Bryant Library, reserved entertainment can be found at nearby Americana Manhasset, Miracle Mile, Wheatley Plaza, and the local movie theater.
