Share Info About New Hyde Park
New Hyde Park is a small village located in Nassau County in Long Island, New York. New Hyde Park is a popular place for families to consider moving to because of its good balance of well-ranked schools, low crime rates, and close commute to for workers travelling into New York City on a daily basis. New Hyde Park is so close to New York City that in fact some of its outer borders actually extend into the borough of Queens. Commuters can take either the Long Island Railroad or travel a short ways to the MTA Subway via the A train. Word of advice, this commute on the subway can take up to two hours at peak time into Midtown Manhattan. Due to this long ride, many commuters either take the Long Island Rail Road (approximately 30-minutes) or drive (also about 30-minutes) into the city directly, or to a closer subway connect in Queens or Brooklyn. In recent years, New Hyde Park has seen a growth in both population and diversity. Many new residents are families of Asian and Indian descent, and bring their unique heritages to the greater culture of the city. Many restaurants and novelty shops that represent these cultures are finding their way into the expanding downtown area. Along with structural improvements made by the town to the downtown area, it is quickly becoming a great place for families to spend time and a big draw for prospective buyers looking to move to the New Hyde Park area. The shopping options and entertainment venues, including a cinema, golf course, public parks and ice skating rinks provide multiple activities for residents to participate in. New Hyde Park has been home at some point or another to many notable people, particularly many professional athletes. Professional football players Bob Avellini and Pete Koch, professional soccer player Crystal Dunn, professional baseball player Gary Christenson, and four-time Olympic discus throw gold medalist Al Oerter all resided in the village during their careers. For families considering moving their families to New Hyde Park, the area as served by four school districts Sewanhaka, Great Neck, Herricks and New Hyde Park-Garden City Park. As is common in most of Long Island, all of the school districts on average perform well nationally on standardized tests and have much higher graduation rate and college acceptance rate than schools in other sections of the state and the United States in general.
