Among the westernmost of the Long Island neighborhoods, Manhasset was named the best town for families in the New York metro area for 2005 by the Wall Street Journal. This Nassau County hamlet is on the Long Island Rail Road line with direct access to New York City. These two facts make it a popular home for professionals who work in the Big Apple. A long list of notables call Manhasset home, including NFL Hall of Famer Billy Crudup and comedian Ray Goulding.

Culture and recreation are part of life in this robust small town. The Harbor Links Golf Complex includes 18 hole, 9 hole and mini golf courses. Hempstead and Bar Beach Parks offer beach access, picnic areas, swimming, and sports. Free concerts play at the Sunset Park throughout the summer. Nearby communities offer a science museum, aquarium and even more golf. Manhasset has its own public school district, which ranked in the top 100 of Newsweek's 2010 report of top American schools.

Settlers have lived in the Manhasset area since the 17th century, leaving behind period homes you can still purchase today -- including Victorian, Craftsman and Dutch Colonial homes. Churches and older mansions offer picturesque views into the people who called the hamlet home in years gone by.
