I am looking for a house in Island Park. It is closer to Brooklyn where I work than other LI towns. Does anyone know if there are health issues or other negatives to living there due to the industry that is there?

He could go the back way to Brooklyn .. over LB bridge ... head west into Atlantic Beach ... over AB Bridge ... through Rockaway to Marine Parkway Bridge to Brooklyn.

Please elaborate! I don't know much about Island Park. The most I do is drive through it to Long Beach.

Default A map of the Village of Island Park in the Town of Hempstead, Nassau County

janaynay, it depends on what YOU mean by Island Park?

Island Park is one of those villages and hamlets on Long Island where the majority of places with the community name as part of their mailing address (849 acres) are not in the community (270 acres).

A map of the Village of Island Park in the Town of Hempstead, Nassau County:


Places that have an "Island Park, NY 11558" mailing address that are not in the Village of Island Park are in the Hamlet of Barnum Island and the Hamlet of Harbor Isle.
