Roslyn Heights' allure: schools, shopping, commute

Roslyn Heights' allure: schools, shopping,
commute 1


Not to be confused with Roslyn, its neighbor to the north, Roslyn Heights is a hamlet surrounded by parks, shopping and easy commuter access.

Roslyn Heights offers a suburban getaway with housing options ranging from Capes to Colonials, ranches and Victorians, said Gwen Levy, a real estate agent with Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

“Buyers are coming to Roslyn Heights because of its proximity to the city, the sense of community, and the award-winning school system,” said Levy. “In addition to being less than 20 miles from Manhattan, Roslyn Heights is 3 miles from North Shore beaches and 15 miles from Jones Beach.”

The hamlet is close to mom-and-pop stores and designer luxury shopping, as well as Roslyn’s restaurants and specialty gourmet markets.

“There are tons of community events and area organizations that are available to all of those wanting to participate,” Levy said.

Parts of Roslyn Heights are in the area encompassed by the incorporated village of East Hills, and those residents get access to East Hills’ pools and parks, said real estate agent Yelena Borukhov of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

The Park at East Hills, which has a 12,000-square-foot pool, tennis courts, fitness center, sports fields, theater and restaurant, is a big draw for area residents.

Noting the Roslyn School District’s reputation for excellence, Town of North Hempstead Councilman Peter Zuckerman said, “It’s traditionally ranked within the State of New York as a tremendous institution that we can all be proud of,” adding that his three children will all have graduated from the district, as did he.

Roslyn Heights is five minutes from North Hempstead Beach Park, the Town of Hempstead’s Harbor Links Golf Course and Clark Botanic Garden. It’s also close to the Miracle Mile shops in Manhasset as well as the Long Island Rail Road’s Roslyn station.

“Roslyn Heights is an area rich with history and allows its residents a peek into small-town living with a 40-minute train ride to New York City,” said Levy.
