Great Neck

Great Neck

The village of Great Neck sits in the middle of the peninsula of the same name, a spit of land between Little Neck and Manhasset bays on the near north shore of Long Island  It's one of nine villages that occupy the peninsula. The area has been occupied by farms since the mid-17th century. After world war two, suburbanization brought housing booms to Great Neck and quadrupled the population in less than four decades. You can find homes from five different centuries in its various neighborhoods. Author F. Scott Fitzgerald lived in neighboring Great Neck Estates, and modeled much of his writing after the culture and people of the area.


Nearby beaches and the 175-acre Kings Point Park offer outdoor recreation for residents. Local shopping, entertainment and art are robust for a town of its size -- and Manhattan  is just 25 minutes away by the nearby rail line. Great Neck Village is served by the Larger Great Neck library and school systems, and by Nassau County Sheriff.


Just over 10,000 people call the village home -- mostly married couples and families with children. With a median family income just under $100,000, it's easily affordable for professionals and executives. Most of the residents commute to jobs in New York City.
