As one of the oldest communities on Long Island's North Shore, Manhasset is situated only 17 miles east of Manhattan, as a haven for commuters with only a 27 minute ride to midtown. Manhasset's tree-lined and winding roads showcase homes of varied architectural styles from classic Colonials, charming Capes, and stately Tudors, to majestic waterfront Manor homes. A bustling, centrally located downtown area seems to step you back to a time of old world tradition with friendly merchants, charming restaurants, and even an Art Deco movie theater built in 1935. Mary Jane Davies Park is right in the heart of the downtown area and is a popular gathering spot for families strolling to the playground, and neighbors listening to the weekly concerts in the bandstand or attending the many crafts and antique shows taking place on the spacious grounds. From the traditional Main Street, it's only five minutes to the sophisticated ambiance of the Miracle Mile offering some of the most upscale shopping in the world. Manhasset also has one of the top twenty school districts in the country. At the Manhasset High School, the imposing clock tower reigns over the large campus and athletic fields. The two elementary schools boast small class sizes and have many afterschool activities.
