The economic and commercial stability, hallmarks of the community, were first fueled by Rockville Centre's recognition by the United States Postal Service. With its new name, the neighborhood officially made the map and real estate and businesses boomed.

This premiere location, its incorporation and the thriving residential and commercial businesses have made Rockville Centre a highly desired place to live for the last hundred years.

Parking can be difficult to find. Many utilize the bike lanes scattered throughout the area.
