Outlying Northern Nassau

Glen Cove, NY

One of the wealthiest counties in the United States, Nassau County in Long Island boasts more than one million residents. The county’s long, storied history and its many attractions appeal to many New Yorkers, which accounts for the county’s popularity and riches. The outlying parts of Nassau County lie near the ocean, north to Oyster Bay and south to Jones Beach State Park. During the summer, tourists flock to towns such as Freeport to enjoy seafood cuisine and relax on well-maintained beaches. Nassau County’s many sights and hour-long car commute to Manhattan make it an ideal place for prospective Long Islanders who desire diversity, recreation and proximity to the big city.

Restaurants

Nassau County locals find world-class restaurants and bars scattered all around the area. Residents know of many well-rated eateries in the Oyster Bay area and in the southern end of Nassau County near Farmingdale. However, you need to go inland for clubs and music, or even take a ride over to Brooklyn. If you want a bite to eat at a simple but renowned diner, choose Village Heros in Syosett for lunchtime. Syosett locals head to Village Heros for its affordable, tasty breakfasts and hearty hero sandwiches. Try the meatball hero for a truly filling meal that keeps you going for the rest of the day. Many take advantage of the seafood restaurants in the Oyster Bay area. For a new twist, however, try Wild Honey for unique dishes such as crab and lobster meatballs and Thai calamari. Wild Honey serves oven-roasted, French-cut chicken for those who prefer the "other" white meat, with spinach and Yukon gold potatoes. Order a glass of wine with your meal and top off the night with a brownie sundae. Fans of Mediterranean cuisine travel further inland to East Meadow. There, they find Sufiya's Grill waiting with fine Iranian fare. Many patrons start with a falafel, a Middle Eastern staple, lightly covered in tahini sauce. The kubideh kabob, consisting of two skewers of grilled ground beef and lamb, feeds several people. Vegetarians enjoy the moussaka made with baked eggplant, potatoes, zucchini and peppers. If you want a beer, go back to Oyster Bay to visit the Oyster Bay Brewing Company. Do a tasting and buy some growlers at a great price. Down south in Massapequa Park, residents appreciate The Good Life for its well-made pub food and range of craft beers. Music fans go to venues such as The Space at Westbury for national acts. Similarly, you can head to NYCB Theater at Westbury to check out more groups or stand-up comedians. Most Nassau County locals looking for a dance night head into New York City, but Aura Nightclub Long Island lies along the Hempstead Turnpike in nearby East Meadow. The club has a special VIP area, and you can even reserve the spot for birthday parties and other special events.

History

The area of Nassau County was once home to various Native American tribes. In the 17th century, Long Island split between Dutch and English settlers — Dutch in the west and English in the east. Later, Nassau County became a center for aviation, mostly because of its flat land. Most of the county was farmland until after World War II, when New Yorkers from the city moved to the region. Nassau County locals still have a strong connection to nearby New York City, but they maintain their identities as New Yorkers living in a historical area with many charming attractions. Several museums in Garden City attract travelers, but locals also like the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum for its memorabilia. Art galleries such as Chase Edwards Fine Art and Soho South Art Gallery dot the outlying Nassau County landscape. Residents have fun at numerous holiday events and festivals year-round in Nassau County.

Transportation

Most Nassau County residents in the outlying regions choose to drive to get around town. However, the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) and Nassau Inter-County Express (NICE) serves the county as a whole with public transportation. Residents tend to choose public transit to get into New York City, rather than drive and risk being stuck in traffic. Both LIRR and NICE make many stops in Nassau, including the outlying areas of Oyster Bay and the Massapequas. Although cabs traverse the entirety of Nassau County, Long Islanders cannot utilize the ride-sharing service Uber and need to go online to find others who have an interest in carpooling. Several major highways, such as I-495 and Sunrise Highway, run through Nassau County so that residents can easily hop on to travel to other places in New York. Some of the smaller hamlets and villages have easier parking, but downtown areas and seaside towns in the summer may give drivers difficulties. Many Long Islanders walk for exercise in their individual towns; however, walking from village to village takes a long time. Most locals drive or take public transit to go shopping. Similarly, bicyclists enjoy riding for recreation, but have a hard time traveling significant distances in populous areas due to the lack of bike lanes.

Cost

Life in outlying Nassau County costs more than the average cost of living in the United States, and more than the average cost in the state of New York. Plan to pay about $1,540 a month in rent for an average one-bedroom apartment in Nassau County. Fares on the LIRR vary from place to place in the county, but NICE provides transportation for a one-way fee of $2.50. Mobile tickets cost $2.75 for a one-way trip. Most drivers in outlying Nassau County pay 15 percent more for gas than the national average. A craft beer in the area costs about $5.

Shopping

A number of large shopping malls are scattered about Nassau County. Broadway Mall, located in Hicksville, houses common retailers such as Bath & Body Works, Macy's and Ikea. The Gallery at Westbury Plaza, a smaller mall, features more high-end shopping options in Bloomingdale's and Nordstrom Rack. Both malls provide plenty of shopping for outlying Nassau County residents. Locals can also access a number of boutiques, such as Ruby and Jenna, located in Plainview. The ever-changing inventory offers designer clothes for reasonable prices. Many health stores and small grocers in Long Island cater to those who prefer to shop for specialty and organic foods. A&S Italian Pork Store in Massapequa presents an array of fresh meats, along with Italian culinary staples like mozzarella. Large grocers, such as Stop & Shop, serve Nassau County residents, as do smaller stores such as Fairway Market. Organic food and produce fans travel to various farmer's markets during the summer, and some stay open year-round. Farm stands such as Rottkamp Bros. Farm in Glen Head display fresh-grown produce such as eggplant, corn, golden beets and more. Others go to J's Marketplace in Syosset or the New Hyde Park Farmers Market along the Jericho Turnpike.

Parks

Nassau County locals love their parks, and travelers can find many of them throughout the county. Bethpage State Park, located at the eastern edge of Nassau County, draws in golfers and exercise enthusiasts who enjoy five world-class golf courses and the hiking and biking trails around the park. Aspiring golfers work on their swing at the driving range, while children play sports on the playing fields. Golf tournaments and polo games year-round attract residents interested in those traditional sports. In the winter, residents like to cross-country ski to check out the snow-covered wilderness. The park costs $8 to enter with a car and does not allow dogs. Residents and tourists alike flock to Jones Beach State Park during the summer. Nearly eight million visitors come to the park every year to revel in the seven acres of white-sand beaches, play games and stroll around the boardwalk. Locals pay $10 to enter the beach when open, and $8 when the beach closes. Leave your dog at home, but stick around for annual events such as volleyball tournaments and the Bethpage Air Show.
