City Guide
Elmont
Moving to the Country

It’s not quite a cabin in the Appalachian Mountains, but it is far removed from the landscape only a short drive across the bridge. There are no skyscrapers here. There arent any crowded subways or yellow taxis at every street corner. People here take the train. Everyone takes the train, so it’s a good idea to go ahead and get your MetroCard if you’re set on moving here. Having your own vehicle is a good idea but not strictly necessary. It does make it easier to take care of daily activities like shopping and dining out, however.

A Time for Every Season

The North Atlantic is famous for its frigid winters and abundant snowfall. However, Elmont experiences all four seasons in due order. Summers here are warm enough to enjoy a trip to the Jersey Shore, and autumn is as magical as anywhere in the world. The leaf changes are famous and cherished by locals for their reminder of life’s simple pleasures.

Getting Away From It All

There are plenty of jobs to be had in retail and customer service. However, the majority of residents commute to the big city. Manhattan is home to one of the largest workforces in the country that doesn’t live within its city limits. Single people in New York get high-priced apartments in trendy neighborhoods downtown. These neighborhoods are perfect for anyone who appreciates what suburban life has to offer, such as a home to come back to and neighbors to invite over for barbecues. If that's not your thing, at least you can eat well on all the money you save.

Higher Degrees

Secondary education near Elmont is plentiful to say the least. Within easy driving distance, you have Adelphi University, Queens College, St. Johns University and Molloy. With a little extra effort, Columbia, Yale and Princeton are practically your neighbors. Many full-time students choose the outer boroughs as an alternative to potentially costly dorm living. With the finest in educational services at hand and arguably the most opportunity on the east coast, the road to a better future may just begin right here where the Dutch colonists first established New Amsterdam almost 400 years ago.

Neighborhoods

There are easily three major neighborhoods, which are separated by the large reserved area of Meachem in the center. Each is very similar, with subtle differences that may influence your home or apartment search. If youre looking for easy transportation and proximity to commercial outlets, the north is your best bet. For seclusion, the south is a good getaway. For the American dream, the east side has the most to offer. Every neighborhood is infused with deep historical significance and more than a little local charm.

East: The East Side runs from Cross Island Parkway to the east and Elmont Road to the west. The majority of homes were built during World War II and immediately after. Renovated and modernized over the years, theres a classic feel to the entire neighborhood. You won't find a lot of apartment complexes, but there's plenty of residential space with up to 3 bedroom houses for rent.

South: From Meachem to the north down to Dutch Broadway, the southern region is the smallest in area. It is, however, host to many conveniences. A small commercial area to the south provides for most of your daily needs.

North: This includes everything north of Meachem to the Belmont Racetrack and includes several apartment rentals. The largest commercial center for restaurants and shopping is located just across the Hempstead Parkway. There are plenty of single-family homes as well as townhouses and 1 bedroom apartments in this area. Ease of access to public transit is a major bonus to this area if you are commuting to work every day.
