Manhasset is a lovely hamlet in Nassau County on the North Shore of the Island. Its close proximity to the bay provides its citizens with beautiful views, fabulous waterfront options for dining and nightlife, as well as a bevy of activities on the weekends. Manhassat Bay's beauty has been revered for decades - its eastern shore was the inspiration for F Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, "The Great Gatsby." Despite its thriving local economy, commuters need not shy away from the rolling hills of Manhasset. The Long Island Railroad gets you into Manhattan in twenty seven minutes flat.
The Manhasset school district covers the incorporated villages of Plandome, Plandome Manor, Munsey Park and Flower Hill, all of which are considered part of Manhasset proper, in any event. The Manhasset school system is not only among the best in the County, but the best in the country. In 2010, Newsweek featured Manhasset High school on its list of top 100 high schools. It should come as no surprise then that the Wall Street Journal called Manhasset one of the best towns to raise a family in the NY metropolitan area.
Manhasset has a wide variety of beaches and parks to enjoy. For those who want to stay inside, Manhasset has one of the most desired shopping destinations in Long Island, the Americana Manhasset. This high end open air shopping center features premium brand botique which makes for unique experience: Manhattan-like shopping on the North Shore of Long Island. Manhasset's old commercial center - complete with all manner of store - is a short distance from the train station.
