The Gables Estates neighborhood of Merrick is located south of Sunrise Highway, just east of Merrick Avenue. This distinctive neighborhood is most recognizble for its Spanish-stucco, California style homes, most of which were built in the 1920s to replicate the kind of homes to be found in Hollywood at the time. Indeed, many attribute the name of the neighborhood to Hollywood legend Clark Gable, who lived in the New York area during his career on Broadway. Adding to this neighborhood's allure is the Meroke Preserve, which is a wooded area along the neighborhood's eastern border that lends a country vibe to this otherwise suburban enclave.
Elementary school aged children living in the Gables Estates area are served by the Merrick Union Free School District. Middle and high school aged children of Gables Estates are served by the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District. Middle-schoolers go to Merrick Avenue Middle School, while high schoolers attend either Calhoun or Kennedy High School.
