Located along the historic Gold Coast of Long Island, New York, is the quaint city of Glen Cove. Incorporated in 1918 and part of Nassau County, Glen Cove is bordered on three sides by well-known Oyster Bay and on the fourth side, by the Long Island Sound. What began as a port for English migrants in the seventeenth century became a haven for many wealthy industrialists in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Many of these estates are now preserves, parks, government and educational centers.
Glen Cove offers a plethora of cultural activities. Visiting The Nassau County Museum of Art, The Hillwood Art Museum and Sagamore Hill Historic Site are all pleasant ways of spending an afternoon, but residents looking for an outdoor experience may stop by the Glen Cove Golf Club, Morgan Park or Welwyn, a former estate that is now a preserve with nature trails, streams, marshes and a diverse wildlife population. And of course, when living on an island, residents always have a favorite beach. Glen Cove offers three public beaches, Prybil, Crescent and Morgan. Whether commuting into the city for work or a night on the town, Manhattan is just a hop, skip and a jump away from one of three local Long Island Railroad stations. Long Island Transit also offers bus service, stopping at Midtown and on Wall Street for weekday commuters.
Home to approximately 27,000 residents, Glen Cove offers a wide range of real estate options, in one of the safest cities in America. Over the 19.2 square miles that comprise this diversely populated city, homebuyers will find a rich assortment of properties, including modern beach houses, mid-century ranches, and turn of the century Colonial, Victorian and Tudor homes at all price ranges. The combination of history and natural beauty with the proximity to the Big Apple, Glen Cove is a must-consider destination for any homebuyer searching in the Greater New York area.
