Port Washington

A boater's  and commuter's paradise, Port Washington is nestled between Manhasset Bay and Hempstead Harbor. It is part of the North Shore's Gold Coast featuring turn of the century castles built by the Guggenheims. "Port" today  is graced with a celebrated public school system, homes priced from $100,000+ to the multimillions and values at every level. Our charming yet sizeable downtown is a mecca for foodies, elegant yet reasonable shopping and services for the entire family. Best of all, the LIRR whisks riders directly to Penn Station in 37 minutes on the express train, 55 minutes off peak- without changing trains. There are many networking groups, cultural and sports opportunities for adults and children, and our award winning PW Public Library is second to none.  Across the street from it is the Parent Resource Center, a gathering place and lifeline for young families, and the Landmark on Main Street, which hosts top name musical and dramatic acts.The Manhasset Bay Yacht Club and Port Washington Yacht Club are social and sporting centers for many families, as are the Sands Point and North Hempstead Golf Clubs. It's the kind of place where many people who grew up here and moved away, return to live the rest of their lives, because it is just a great place to live.
