"A close-knit but welcoming community" is how associate broker Wendy Liotti, of Rowan Realty, describes Carle Place, a hamlet in the town of North Hempstead in Nassau County.
"Life in Carle Place revolves around the schools," she says. "The elementary, middle and high schools are adjoining, with the track and fields in the middle."
The big news here is the Amazon warehouse. "Through several meetings with various neighborhood stakeholders, Amazon has clearly demonstrated that they care about our community," says town Supervisor Judi Bosworth. "As they set up shop in a long vacant facility, we are pleased to welcome them to the town."
North Hempstead plans to revamp the popular Charles J. Fuschillo Park. The town is looking into renovating the playground and recreational areas to build upon what already exists and add amenities for children and adults alike, according to a spokesperson.
The community derives its name from Silas Carle, a pharmaceuticals merchant who in the 1800s built a showy home here that became known as "the Carle place." That became the official name in 1916. In 1946, some 600 homes were built over 19 acres in the area. The homes served as the prototype for what became the massive Levittown development nearby, according to Newsday archives.
The original Levitt Capes and Colonials have mostly been modified, expanded or flattened and rebuilt, Liotti says. "Prices are now between $600,000 and mid-800,000s for what, not too long ago, were $500,000 to $700,000," she says.
