Oceanside Real Estate

Oceanside, NY is a hamlet in the town of Hempstead in Nassau County, Long Island. As befits its name, Island Park and Long Beach lie just to the south across Middle Bay, and beyond that, the Atlantic Ocean. East Rockaway and Bay Parkway are neighbors to the west, with Rockville Center to the north and Baldwin and Baldwin Harbor on the east.

The hamlet's name was a smart business decision dating back to the 19th century when it was changed first to "Oceanville" from "Christian Hook" and then, eventually, to "Oceanside" to remind people that it was home to a booming oyster sales business. Proximity to sand and surf in nearby Long Beach, Lido Beach and Point Lookout as well as Middle Bay puts Oceanside in an attractive spot for anyone seeking a home near Atlantic waters. A short drive to the south is Jones Beach, which figures into many a New Yorker's fond memories as well as being an immensely popular summer day trip, concert and entertainment destination today. In addition to having some of the island's favorite local beaches nearby, longtime and new residents love Oceanside for its proximity to the area's many shops and other amenities and for its cultural and ethnic diversity. Neighboring towns like Lynbrook and Rockville Centre offer more options for culture, dining and entertainment. With over 32,000 residents there's a part of town to suit just about anyone's taste and home-buying budget.

Travel time to New York City is fairly short on the Long Beach branch of the Long Island Railroad, which passes through the hamlet's west side. The Oceanside station is at Weidner Avenue and Lawson Boulevard. In the northern part of Oceanside, many commuters use either the nearby Rockville Centre Station or Baldwin Station on the Babylon Branch. Highway access to sections of Long Island to the east and west is via the Southern State Parkway, which leads to the Belt Parkway in Queens and extends far into Suffolk County.
