Living In: Valley Stream


Share Info About Valley Stream
Living in Valley Stream, Long Island might be just the thing for young professionals and families looking for housing that's a little less extravagant than you'll find in some of the village's Nassau County neighbors. Located in the southwestern section of the town of Hempstead, right on the border of Queens, Valley Stream delivers on the appeal of Long Island suburban life, but also remains readily accessible to Manhattan. For example, life in Valley Stream means strong public schools, close proximity to Long Island's fantastic beaches and waterfront areas, a well-maintained and quite popular residents-only pool, and a real sense of small-town community in many sections. But because Valley Stream is only 25 miles from Manhattan, and enjoys its own major stop on the Long Island Rail Road, your commute to Penn Station is always less than 40 minutes by train. In addition to its schools and abundant public programming for children, much of Valley Stream life centers on the Valley Stream State Park, which offers the expected playgrounds, playing fields and ball courts (volleyball, basketball, bocce ball) as well as picnic areas with grills and tables, nature trails (with two--the Squirrel Nut and Hickory Nut trail--designed especially for children), and a unique "walking course", a half-mile loop with 15 "stretching and strengthening stations" along the way. Communities in the immediate vicinity of Valley Stream include Elmont, Lynbrook, Malverne, Franklin Square, Hewlett, Woodmere, and Rosedale, Queens.
