Woodmere Real Estate

The hamlet of Woodmere is one of Nassau County's Five Towns near the border of Queens County in the town of Hempstead. While not actually towns, the Five Towns which also include Inwood, Lawrence, Cedarhurst and The Hewletts (Hewlett Bay Park, Hewlett Harbor and Hewlett Neck and the hamlet of Hewlett) have a distinctive reputation. Though the North Shore is often referred to as Long Island's Gold Coast, this area of the South Shore has been known to rival its concentration of affluence. Neighbors include Lawrence and the tiny village of Woodsburgh to the south, Inwood to the west, Rosedale and Valley Stream to the North and Hewlett to the east.

In addition to the hamlet's highly-rated public school system and well-regarded private and parochial schools, Woodmere is a great place for families with children because of its many family-oriented services and low crime rate. Despite the area's affluent reputation, a wide range of houses can be found here from well-maintained homes on small lots to the multi-storied manors often associated with Five Towns wealth.

Like the other towns, Woodmere is peaceful and suburban yet less than 45 minutes to New York City via the Long Island Railroad and minutes from the ocean beaches of Atlantic Beach and the Rockaways. There are plenty of options for shopping and dining Broadway is the local retail and restaurant strip as well as parks, pools and golf courses. Woodmere also has the luxury of access to bays, canals and waterways leading to the ocean. Recreation choices include the private Woodmere Club and nearby North Woodmere Park, a 150-acre waterfront park. Idlewild Park and Hook Creek Wildlife Sanctuary offer more outdoor options.

By car, Woodmere is about 40 to 45 minutes from Manhattan with light traffic. The Woodmere station offers Long Island Railroad service to Penn Station in Midtown it's about a 45-minute commute from New York City by rail. John F. Kennedy International Airport is less than five miles away.
