On the western shore of Cold Spring Harbor is the delightful village of Laurel Hollow, New York. Within the Town of Oyster Bay, Laurel Hollow is located on the eastern end of Nassau County, bordering Suffolk County. The village was originally incorporated in 1926 under the name “Lauralton”, but was changed in 1935, so as not to be confused with the nearby Lauralton neighborhood in Queens, New York. It is likely named for the abundance of fragrant laurel bushes in the area.
