THE SCOOP

Plainview is a hot real estate market close to major highways and surrounded by communities such as Hicksville, Melville, Syosset, Jericho and Bethpage.

Some 299 homes sold in Plainview in 2020, according to OneKey MLS. The higher home prices in Jericho and Syosset have driven homebuyers to Plainview, says Mara Navaretta from Homes By Mara Realty. "You can get houses for $100,000 less than in Syosset and $200,000 less than in Jericho," Navaretta says about Plainview. "It’s the newest hottest area. We’re seeing lines around the block at open houses."

Country Pointe in Plainview is a new 143-acre development that, when completed, will feature 750 condominium suites, villas and townhomes, of which about 80% will be age-restricted. It will include a clubhouse and recreation facilities, according to the developer, Michael Dubb, founder and CEO of The Beechwood Organization.

The complex includes a 118,450-square-foot shopping center, The Shops at Country Pointe Plainview, on Old Country Road, with walking access for Country Pointe residents. It is home to a ShopRite Supermarket, a bank and a variety of retail outlets.

Plainview has more than 30 parks, says Oyster Bay Councilman Louis B. Imbroto. The town is planning to build a community park on 57 acres adjacent to Country Pointe that was donated by Beechwood, Imbroto says. "Work will start this summer and is expected to be completed by year end."

Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School was named a 2020 Blue Ribbon winner by the U.S. Department of Education. The honor recognizes graduation rates, test scores and schools that have succeeded most in closing performance gaps between students of different races, ethnicities and economic backgrounds.
