Glen Cove Real Estate

Steamboats offered service from New York City to this destination on Long Island's north shore beginning in the early 19th century.

Once the railroad was extended to Glen Cove in the 1860s, the rolling hills and views of Long Island Sound and Manhattan Island attracted wealthy families including J.P. Morgan, Charles Pratt and F.W. Woolworth. Their expansive mansions remain as historic architecture and as points of interest, with the Platt Manor now serving as a local hotel and convention center.

Recreation opportunities in Glen Cove include a wealth of city and county parks, public beaches, swimming, fishing and three nearby golf courses.

The city has its own police, fire, EMS, public works, and school system. Residents enjoy ample dining and shopping in town, and easy access via the Long Island Railroad, Long Island Expressway or ferry service to the virtually unlimited options offered by the nearby Big Apple.

The Webb Institute of Naval Architecture is located at the tip of Glen Cove, overlooking Long Island Sound.

Glen Cove is home to a population of just under 27,000 people, mostly affluent and established families of professionals and executives. A variety of eminent people have called Glen Cove home over the years, including entertainers Ashanti Douglas, Billy Joel, and Mel Gibson and athletes Joe Namath, Darrel Kestner, and Howard Davis, Jr.
