Living In: Mill Neck

Share Info About Mill Neck
Mill Neck is a very small village located in the northeast section of Nassau County in Long Island, New York. The population of the area is very small, less than 1000 people, making it a close community with not much turn over in the real estate market. Located on the north shore of the Long Island Sound, and part of the famous Gold Coast, the village is prime for water front living if you can get it. Because of its limited area, residents send their children to schools in a variety of nearby counties. With a five-mile radius, there are ten elementary schools, eight middle schools and nine high schools located mostly in Oyster Bay and Locust Valley. For such a small area, Mill Neck is the proud homeland of several well know personas. Most notable are artist Charles Proctor, the Doubleday brothers, and Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney, movie producer and founder and chairman of Pan American Airlines. There are plenty of activities for residents to partake in by venturing out into nearby areas of the greater Nassau County. There is nearby shopping, restaurants and a movie theatre in Oyster Bay. There is also outlet shopping at Tanger and popular retail stores at shopping malls such at Roosevelt Field, The Mall at Source and Americana Manhasset. In nearby Oyster Bay, there public town beaches including Centre Island Beaches and the Charles E. Ransom Beaches. For more entertainment options, residents can go to the Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale or the Northfork Theatre in Westbury. Roughly thirty-five miles from New York City, residents of Mill Neck can take advantage of a quick commute for work or outings. The Long Island Rail Road's Oyster Bay branch makes stops at Oyster Bay and Locust Valley, both convenient to Mill Neck. Because of the small population, Mill Neck had a reputation for being a very private neighborhood. The most exclusive area is located along Horseshoe Road, where estates have remained in the same families for generations. Of the lesser-established properties, it is rare to find a home for under $2-million, so younger families aren't often able to afford the move to Mill Neck and opt for lower-priced nearby neighborhoods. As can be assumed with such high real estate values, the area's residents are majority upper class, and place a large emphasis on school ratings and cultural activities.
