Merrick Real Estate

"Near everything, away from it all," is how residents describe this hamlet in the central South Shore of Long Island. A suburban mecca, the thousand parking spaces of its Long Island Rail Station are full by 7 am on workdays. Families living here enjoy more than a dozen preserves, community parks and green spaces, as well as miles of waterfront. The community is served by a robust system of libraries, museums and art galleries.

This village of just under 25,000 people has plenty of restaurants, shops and entertainment, and is under an hour from thousands of more options in the Big Apple itself. Public beaches are nearby in neighboring communities such as Oceanside.

Two school districts serve the population -- the Merrick Union Free School District and the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District. Merrick schools spend 33 percent more per student than the national average, and over 80 percent of high school graduates go on to attend college.

Although homes in Merrick are affordable for working professionals, the village has hosted its share of celebrities and other notables. Charles Fox, founder of the Long Island Rail Road lived here, as did "The Godfather" author Mario Puzo.
