Westbury Real Estate

The village of Westbury is rich in history, with the first settlers dating back to 1658. In 1932, the village was incorporated and is now home to 14,263 people.

Westbury is known as the Community for All Seasons, a nickname it picked up in the 1970's that stuck. This is due to the wide diversity of residents that call Westbury home. Italian Americans, Salvadorans, as well as Arab Americans and Indian Americans share this village. Interestingly, most of the Italian Americans in Westbury can trace their origins back to the same village in Italy.

Westbury was one of the stops on the Underground Railroad and many former slaves found refuge there. The Long Island Railroad was built through the town in the 1840's bringing prosperity and a larger population.

Many famous people are from this humble village, including two Fox News analysts, Bill O'Reilly and Neil Cavuto. It was also home to Dr. Dre and Joe Satriani.

Music is important in Westbury, and the annual Westbury Music Fair is always highly attended. The nearby historic village of Jericho is also a draw for many tourists.

This melting pot community is characterized by great community relations and the village's proximity to beaches and plenty of outdoor activities make it a great place to call home.
