Mill Neck, NY is a tiny village in the town of Oyster Bay in Nassau County on the North Shore of Long Island. The towns on the island's North Shore including Oyster Bay Cove, Mill Neck, Cove Neck, Upper Brookville, Locust Valley and neighboring Matinecock make up its coveted "Gold Coast." These established waterfront communities are affluent even by Long Island standards.
Both scenic and secluded, Mill Neck named for a 17th century mill is an ideal place to live if you're looking for an undisturbed woodland or waterfront setting. Mill Neck has long been home to New York's wealthiest families, Rockefellers and Vanderbilts among them. Forbes magazine listed Mill Neck's zip code as the third most expensive in the country. That said, this residential community of fewer than 1,000 people offers a variety of homes from single-family ranch and colonial houses in areas like Mill Neck Estates to secluded mansions set on vast, densely-wooded forest-like lots and overlooking scenic Mill Neck Bay.
In addition to excellent schools, the Mill Neck Manor School for the deaf is located here. The rural landscape in parts of the town of Oyster Bay hosts a number of wildlife sanctuaries like the 3,200 acre National Wildlife Refuge, home to New York State's only remaining commercial oyster farm, which produces 90% of the state's oyster harvest.
Residents can enjoy unspoiled natural woodlands at the John P. Humes Japanese Stroll Garden and the 60-acre Shu Swamp Nature Preserve. The area offers several private country clubs. In nearby Oyster Bay, the downtown shopping district draws residents from Mill Neck and surrounding villages for its cafes, restaurants, bookstores and other shops. Beekman Beach, run by the town of Oyster Bay, offers a 97-slip town marina open only to town residents. Also nearby is the 400-acre Planting Fields Arboretum state park. To honor the area's waterfront legacy, an annual oyster festival is held in Theodore Roosevent Memorial Park in Oyster Bay.
The nearest Long Island Railroad stations are at Locust Valley and Oyster Bay on the Oyster Bay branch, about 10-15 minutes away by car. The Syosset station offers more frequent trains and express trains for a shorter commute to New York City.
