SERVPRO Provides Round the Clock Flood Restoration for the Manhasset Region

The New York City Metropolitan area covers a vast strip of the eastern coast with Manhasset, of Nassau County, being incorporated into the region. The hamlet of Manhasset is among a collection of small towns that make up the northern border of Long Island. Widely regarded as a bedroom community, this little set of villages offers close transportation links to New York City while maintaining a quieter residential feel. The region's population first began to experience rapid growth with the arrival of the Long Island railway service in 1898. The infrastructure connecting Long Island to inner New York was essential to the rising population. However, the trading outpost's importance during the industrial revolution also saw a diverse mixture of people come to settle on the northern coast of Long Island. The region has become popular in modern culture, with many films and books set along the gold coast, an affluent part of the East Coast that offers unique post-modern architecture and prestigious residents.

The gold coast region was a popular holiday destination for the rich and famous during the twentieth century. The convenience afforded by proximity to the city resulted in significant land investment that has since made up some of Manhasset's neighborhoods and villages. Munsey Park was owned by newspaper editor Frank A. Munsey who purchased over 663 acres of grounds in and around Manhasset. His death, and lack of heirs, meant that the Munsey Estate passed over to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Other wealthy landowners in the region include the Vanderbilts, who owned an estate of 100 acres. Much like Munsey Park, many of these grounds were redeveloped or turned into smaller communities and villages. The names these regions carry is a testament to the original owners of the vast swathes of land on the northern shore of Long Island. Other neighborhoods include North Hills, owned by New York Herald Publisher John Hay Whitney, Flower Hill, and Greentree. Some gold coast estates are still intact today, with nearly a quarter of Manhasset lands remaining under private ownership.

  • The building of the Long Island railway was an essential piece of infrastructure to the town's growth. The distance from Manhasset to Manhattan is roughly 19.5 miles. The Long Island Railroad takes around thirty minutes to reach Manhattan. The railway's arrival led to many publishers, bankers, and celebrities moving to the North Shore of Long Island.
  • The gold coast is a moniker describing the vast estates that were common on Long Island. In the early twentieth century, successful business people and traders would construct holiday estates that sometimes stretched over 600 acres. Today, regular gold coast mansion tours can be taken by boat from Manhasset Bay.
  • The Americana Manhasset is an alfresco shopping center that was initially built in the fifties. As the neighborhoods have developed, this shopping center has become famous for its sale of premium goods. Current occupants and retail outlets of Long Island's Miracle Mile include Ralph Lauren, Prada, Chanel, and Georgio Armani.

Visiting Manhasset and the Gold Coast

The North Shore of Long Island is world-renowned for its wealth and lavish properties. The Gold Coast resulted from the vast amounts of wealth produced by the second industrial revolution in 1890, often referred to as the gilded era. During this period, over five hundred mansions were erected along the gold coast.

  • The Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve and the Nassau County Museum of Art were formerly gold coast mansions owned by Marshall Field and Henry Clay Frick. The two owners had wealth in US steel companies and department stores.
  • Other stunning mansions in the region include the Planting Fields Arboretum State Historical Park and The Sand Points Preserve. Many of these iconic builds allow public access through the grounds and for tours.
  • At one point, the Vanderbilt family-owned over 400 acres of land along the Northern Shore of Long Island. On 180 Little Neck Road is the Vanderbilt Museum & Planetarium, built in the Spanish revival style that is commonplace in this area.
  • Beaches in the area are well renowned for their pristine sands and fishing opportunities. Among the highlights is the Daniel R. Davis Preserve on Mount Sinai-Coram Road and Cedar Beach. Manhasset Bay also features a stunning promenade with restaurants, water taxis, and bars lining the waterfront.
