Lynbrook Real Estate

Previously named "Five Corners" because of its distinctive five-way intersection of the Sunset Highway, Hempstead Avenue, Union Avenue and Altlantic Avenue, Lynbrook has existed under one name or another since the 19th century.

It was one of the earliest communities to welcome families leaving New York City, and its current moniker derives from swapping the syllables of the native borough of many early 20th century residents. (Brook-Lynn, get it?)

Lynbrook is surrounded by parks, with the Bay County Park and Hewlett Point Park on Hewlett Bay to the south, Lister, Morgan and Tanglewood Parks along the river to the east and Grant and Greis Parks to the west. Between them, residents have access to miles of hiking and walking trails, public beaches, sports courts, picnic spaces and playgrounds.

A community of just over 20,000 full-time residents, Lynbrook offers local food, shopping and entertainment. For a wider selection, New York City is just to the west, a quick ride on the Long Island Railroad or Long Island Expressway.

Lynbrook is an incorporated village, with its own school system, public works, fire department and police services. The sitcom Everybody Loves Raymondis ostensibly set in Lynbrook, (but is filmed in California).

Residents of Lynbrook include professional and working families. They often refer to their town as "Lynbrook, U.S.A," because it is the only community in the country with that name
