City Guide

Rockville Centre
"Almost every house in this village has been redone or close to it. It's beautiful, and the downtown is much more vibrant than when I was a kid." (Francis Murray, Mayor of Rockville Centre)
"Almost every house in this village has been redone or close to it. It's beautiful, and the downtown is much more vibrant than when I was a kid." (Francis Murray, Mayor of Rockville Centre)

Although Rockville Centre is officially an incorporated village, "centre" is a fitting description as this community doesn't quite fit the Long Island definition of a town, city or village: it's more a combination of the three. It's a small, unique community in the town of Hempstead, with a population of about 24,568 people. Rockville Centre is only one of three communities in Long Island that is self-sufficient enough to provide its own electricity. As a result, the village was the only one that still had lights burning after superstorm Sandy struck. The village is ranked as one of the safest areas in New York, and residents report that police and emergency services are usually on the scene within minutes. The weather is typical for Long Island, with hot summers and cold winters, so look for both heating and cooling installations during your search for rental housing. The fact that Rockville Centre is such a charming place and close to all the main New York attractions really adds to its appeal.

Renting in Rockville

Availability

If you have set your eyes on Rockville Centre, you have to be prepared to act quickly. Places to rent here go like sweet cakes, especially the smaller one-bedroom apartments and studio apartments for rent, as they tend to be more affordable. Rental properties in Rockville are not cheap, and although there are plenty of apartment complexes, only 25% of all properties in the village are renter occupied (while only a minuscule 1.14% are available for rent most of the time). The "out with the old, and in with the new" transition usually happens very quickly, and you need to be there to catch it in time.

Costs

As mentioned, house rent is very expensive in the village. Even New Yorkers will need to take a deep breath before looking at the rates, as the rent in Rockville Centre is almost 10% percent more expensive than in the rest of New York. Out-of-towners might want to sit down and take a gulp of whiskey (or extra strong coffee) to soften the blow, as Rockville Centre's rent is 47% greater than the average in America. The cost of living in Rockville is also quite steep, standing 26% higher than the average for New York.

Winning the Battle

Getting into an apartment complex in Rockville Centre really comes down to a battle of wits. Your ultimate goal is to convince your landlord that you are the best candidate out of the long list of other puppy-eyed tenants waiting for a "yes." Ensure that you've prepared glowing references from previous landlords and proof of sufficient income, and check that your credit record is impeccable. Have a check ready for the security deposit along with the first month's rent. Be cordial, dress like a person of very sober habits and omit any foul phrases from your vocabulary.

Nightlife

There is always something happening in town, and the village has a vibrant nightlife. You can go watch the latest movies at the six-screen Fantasy 5 Loews movie theater or have a delicious dinner at one of the many excellent restaurants. There is something for every taste, such as Mama Lee's with its delicious Taiwanese food, George Martin the Original (a true American bistro serving dishes ranging from steak to seafood) and Gino's Pizzeria for those in the mood for a traditional-style pizza
