Baldwin Real Estate

The hamlet of Baldwin, N.Y. lies within the town of Hempstead in Nassau County on the South Shore of Long Island. Neighboring hamlets and villages include Rockville Centre, Hempstead, Freeport, Baldwin Harbor and Oceanside.

In 1990, the area south of Atlantic Avenue with Middle Bay and Baldwin Bay as a southern border was designated as the hamlet of Baldwin Harbor. Baldwin Harbor remains within Baldwin's postal code area, school district and library system.

Long Island's South Shore communities were built along protected wetlands with white sand beaches fronting on the Atlantic Ocean and Outer Barrier Islands. Compared to some of its South Shore neighbors, the more relaxed atmosphere of Baldwin make it an ideal family community. A 2007 Money magazine survey found Baldwin to be one of the country's top 25 small towns to live in, drawing a diverse population seeking high-performing schools and proximity to healthy job markets and beaches.

You'll find a variety of different neighborhoods here. Older developments offer traditional Capes and colonials, while others have more of a variety of architectural styles. The community is notably civic-minded, working together to plan events like the Baldwin Memorial Day Parade and helping out at Baldwin's Big Sweep, in which volunteers clean up one of the hamlet's main avenues. Baldwin has its own school district, the Baldwin Union Free School District. Baldwin Senior High School is a nationally recognized School of Excellence. Baldwin's waterfront park offers a wealth of amenities like a skate park, roller rink and spray pool.

Other South Shore attractions include the Robert Moses-designed Jones Beach State Park, Belmont Park Race Track, Adelphi and Hofstra Universities and Valley Stream and Hempstead Lake State Parks.

Sunrise Highway runs east-west through Baldwin and the Southern State Parkway forms its northern border. It takes about 41 minutes (about 23 miles) to reach Midtown Manhattan by rail from the Baldwin stop on the Long Island Railroad (Babylon branch). John F. Kennedy International Airport is about nine miles away.
