Living In: Old Brookville


Share Info About Old Brookville
Old Brookville is a small village located within the town of Oyster Bay in Nassau County, along the gold coast of Long Island in New York. The area is known as being an exclusive neighborhood, one of the most so in Long Island. The large houses have a grandeur appeal and are not on top of one another, giving each resident a healthy amount of private property. For the most part, many residents remark on the high ceilings, open floor plans and Hamptons-style architecture and décor of the houses in the village. Many of the newer homes have private gates, though neighbors insist this does not deter the sense of community. It is common for homes to have pools, putting greens and/or tennis courts in their backyards. The area of Old Brookville is historically known for its horse farms. However, newer developments have sprung up on previous farms. At the Estates at Green Fields, a new subdivision of fifteen homes replaced 56 acres of old horse farms. Many residents choose to live in Old Brookville for its beautiful landscaping, close commute into midtown Manhattan and excellent school district. Old Brookville belongs to the North Shore School District, along with the nearby hamlets of Sea Cliff, Glenwood Landing, Glen Head and parts of Rosyln Harbor and Greenvale. Through their elementary years, students attend Glen Head, Glenwood Landing or Sea Cliff elementary schools. These feed into North Shore Middle School and North Shore High School respectively. The North Shore High School students repeatedly average a score of fifty points higher than the state average on all three sections of the SAT national exam. In addition to the North Shore School District, parents have the option to send their children to The Green Vale School, a private school for children aged from kindergarten through eighth grade set on a beautiful 40-acre campus. Although very pricey, the school has an excellent reputation. Old Brookville is positioned only about twenty-five miles from Manhattan. Via the Northern Boulevard, Glen Cove Road and The Long Island Expressway, the trip takes about forty minutes in light traffic. Residents commuting into the city can buy an Oyster Bay Town sticker and park at the Glen Head Station to take the Long Island Railroad into the city. Residents can spend their time participating in many outdoor activities in the area. Aside from horseback riding, the winding roads are a favorite for cyclists. There are two private country clubs, Cedar Brook and Brookville, both with 18-hole golf courses. There are also an array of boutique shops, restaurants and fitness centers along Glen Cove Road at Wheatley Plaza in Greenvale.
