It is not necessary to refer to a village as an incorporated village, because, by New York State definition, a village is a municipal corporation and there are no such entities as an unincorporated village (an unincorporated corporation is an oxymoron); unincorporated areas, such as Port Washington, are hamlets.

Walter, you sure are a detail oriented guy! You must either be an accountant or a lawyer!

I do know the difference between a Hamlet and a village. Though I must say that New York State and Long Island in particular has a confusing set of overlapping jurisdictions! For example: both the Port Washington School District and the Port Washington Police District's boundaries differ from what are the Hamlet of Port Washington's boundaries (of course the Hamlet of Port Washington is not a legal entity, I know).

I wonder why Port Washington was never incorporated as a village? It is such a large entity not to be recognized as such.

I believe that the Port Washington Public Library District is a school district library district and, if so, it would have, by definition, the exact same borders as the Port Washington Union Free School District.

Does anyone know about Eastern Crest in Port Washington, and what elementary school it belongs to and how is that elementary school?

Eastern Crest is a nice upper middle class section of Port Washington near St. Peter of Alcantara Catholic Church. The houses were built mainly in the 1950's. It is zoned for Sousa Elementary which is considered one of the better elementary schools in the District.

I moved to port a year ago and love it. My dad used to live in sands point and so I was already familiar with the area. These posts on gangs and anything else are ridiculous. It's a beautiful neighborhood and so glad we made this move!
