THE SCOOP

New Hyde Park is a vibrant, diverse community that straddles two townships in two counties, and includes an incorporated village, an unincorporated area and multiple school districts.

It is easily accessible, close to several modes of transportation. "Being 26 minutes from Kennedy Airport and 35 minutes from LaGuardia is a huge benefit. And on the LIRR, three stops and 28 minutes later you’re at Penn Station," says Art Savarese, a real estate agent with First Flag Realty and a New Hyde Park Village trustee.

Homes priced between $550,000 and to $850,000 are selling fastest, he says, with Colonials the most popular.

The area’s largest employers — Long Island Jewish Medical Center, Cohen Children’s Medical Center, Pro Health, Dealer Track Technologies, and Parker Institute for Health — collectively employ 25,400 people, according to Data Axle Reference Solutions.

The village is proud of its diversity, says Mayor Christopher Devane. A multicultural night showcasing a variety of ethnic food is planned in July and a Diwali celebration is scheduled in November. "We may be of different color and cultures, but we all want the same things in our community: safety, vibrancy and a bright future for our children," Devane says.
