Manhasset is among the crown jewels of Long Island’s North Shore, boasting a small-town feel, close proximity to Manhattan, renowned public schools, highly regarded restaurants and prime shopping destinations.
The hamlet caters to both first-time Long Islanders looking to escape the “Big City” and residents with deep roots within the community.
Bordering Manhasset Bay to its north, Manhasset rests on the edge of Long Island’s opulent “Gold Coast,” of legendary novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby fame. Unlike its more insulated neighbors, residents from across the Island gravitate to the hamlet’s famed “Miracle Mile” for lavish shopping excursions and meals at high-end restaurants when the sun goes down. For a community of less than 10,000, Manhasset always seems to be bustling, as people bask in its subtle charm and bountiful opportunities for fun.
