Elmont Real Estate

Elmont, N.Y. is an unincorporated area within the town of Hempstead in Nassau County, Long Island. This suburban community with a population of around 33,000 shares a border with Queens (of which it was once a part). Given its spot near the Nassau County border, Elmont has been referred to as the Gateway to Long Island." Nassau County neighbors include Franklin Square, Valley Stream and North Valley Stream and Stewart Manor, and in Queens, Floral Park, Bellerose, Queens Village and Cambria Heights. Elmont is the home of Belmont Park which hosts the Belmont Stakes, the third leg of the prestigious Triple Crown of thoroughbred racing.

Elmont, like many of Long Island's suburban communities, experienced a real estate boom after World War II with the rapid development of new homes in many neighborhoods. Those original well-kept Capes, ranches, raised ranches and colonials have been joined by newer mostly single-family homes of all sizes.

Along tree-lined streets you'll also find parks, historic churches and synagogues, and cultural festivals and restaurants add to this diverse communitycs lively atmosphere. The area is known for its outstanding schools, another attraction for young families. Many residents who grew up in Elmont have stayed on to raise their own families here.

Convenience is another factor for many who choose to live here. Located at the junction of the Cross Island Parkway, Belt Parkway, and Southern State Parkway, Elmont offers quick and easy access to the Long Island Parkway system and is about 7 miles from the Long Island Expressway and 10 miles from the Throgs Neck Bridge. Elmont is near the Floral Park, New Hyde Park and Valley Stream stations of the Long Island Rail Road for regular commuter service to NYC. The nearest airport is John F. Kennedy International Airport, seven miles away.
