THE SCOOP North Bellmore keeps a small-town feel with access to larger town amenities.

With a population of 21,500 in just 2.6 square miles, the hamlet has 90% of its residents who own their homes, per U.S. Census data. Almost all are single-family houses, and rentals are scarce.

North Bellmore students attend North Bellmore School District, an elementary district with five schools serving kindergarten through sixth grade. The students then attend Bellmore-Merrick High School's Grand Avenue Middle School and Mepham High School.

The North Bellmore Public Library on Newbridge Road — recently renovated at a cost of about $8.9 million — has summer movies and concerts on the lawn, and many recreational and educational activities for children and adults.

"The goal was to become the heart of the community," said library director Jessica Tymecki.

North Bellmore, while a community and school district on its own, feeds into the larger community of Bellmore.

"The big park in the area is Newbridge Park," said Ann Turner, a real estate agent with Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty. The park, in next-door Bellmore, has trails, a dog park, an indoor ice rink and pools.

The Bellmore Long Island Rail Road station is an approximately 40-minute commute to Manhattan. The station's parking lot is also the site of a summer classic car show and an annual carnival, now in its 36th year.

What is now North Bellmore was once called Smithville, because in 1850, so many Smith families lived there. In 1818, a bridge was built to allow Merrick Road to span a creek, making the area more residential. In 1867, the railroad arrived and its station was named Bellmore. This brought more businesses around the station, leading to residents calling the area Bellmore more often. The name became official when the first post office was established.

Newbridge Elementary School, built in 1924, is North Bellmore's oldest school, at almost 100 years old.
