Natural Attractions

While Hewlett Neck is Number Two among the richest in Nassau County, it is south of the the other three that are clustered closely together some 15 miles north on I-495. Plandome, Plandome Manor, and Munsey Park are also just east across Manhasset Bay from Great Neck.

Hewlett Neck's location is approximately four miles north of a long system of recreational and natural beaches visited by many vacationers, but also several scenic wildlife refuges and parks. Leed's Pond and a group of American Bald Eagles are attractions for the three northern communities, but the beaches and the related widlife are as big a draw just minutes to the south.

Many place names in Nausau County contain the term neck, which indicates a narrow section of land offshooting from a wider section. Examples are Hewlett's Neck and Great Neck.

Hewlett Neck NY

Hewlett Neck is approximately two miles north of Hewlett NY and is a Village incorporated in 1930, according the the Nassau County villages' combined website.

BEACHES/PARKS - Below Hewlett NY, the Nassau Expressway, Highway 878, leads across the Atlantic Beach Bridge to an island that contains many parks. From west to east, these are Silver Point County Park, Atlantic Beach, East Atlantic Beach, Long Beach Park, Lido Beach (with the Lido Golf Club), Lido Beach Town Park, West Marina, and Point Lookout. Park Street, Beech (like the tree) Street, and Lido Blvd transverse the island, Park becoming Lido; and a railroad line travels south into the middle of Long Beach to a station at Market Street. Restaurants, hotels, spas, a medical center, a high school, a beach club and other facilities are located on this island. Several restaurtns and taverns are located at Point Lookout and the Loop Parkway leaves this end of the island.

Take the Loop Parkway to the Meadowbrook State Parkway and turn south to access another island of beaches east of Long Beach. The second island features:

Jones Beach, Zach's Bay, John F. Kennedy Memorial Wildlife Sanctuary, Today Beach park, Gilgo Beach, and Cedar Beach Park. The highway became Ocean Parkway at the end of Jones Beach, and continues eastward to Captree Stae Park and Captree Isand. The robert Moses Causeway crosses Ocean Parkway north to south and taking the causeway to the south brings you to a third island, which contains many more parklands, beaches, and dunes. This includes the Fire Island National Seashore (link above, right).

Munsey Park NY

The Village of Munsey Park was incorporated in 1931

Plandome Manor NY

A great hub again. I am running out of praises and hate to write the same again. Sometime a language is very limited.
