Known as the gateway to Long Island, Elmont hugs the Queens-Nassau border and is home to the UBS Arena, a multipurpose complex under construction that’s poised to change the area.
The Belmont Park site will host sports events, including all New York Islanders home games. The complex, set to open later this year, will also have a 250-room hotel and 350,000 square feet of retail space, according to Newsday reports. Belmont Park is already home to thoroughbred horse racing and the annual Belmont Stakes.
Coinciding with the Belmont Park project, the LIRR is building an Elmont station that is targeted to start operating in October.
Homes here are going above asking price, says Bobby McLeod of Unlimited Homes Realty. "New homes are selling for $700,000 and higher," he says. Colonials and Capes are most in demand in the brisk resale market, and most homes in Elmont are a walk to stores, McLeod says.
"Elmont is a very diverse, family-oriented community that values quality of life, education and opportunity for all with a wonderful balance of ethnicities living in harmony," says Carrié Solages, Nassau County legislator.
King Umberto, an Italian eatery in Elmont, was named to Newsday’s 2020 Top100 Long Island restaurant list.
