For those who may not be familiar with Atlantic Beach:
Atlantic Beach is a village (incorporated in 1962), on Long Beach Island, in the southwest part of the Town of Hempstead, in the southwest part of Nassau County, adjacent to the Queens/Nassau County line.
Beginning on the north and moving in a clockwise direction, the Village of Atlantic Beach in the Town of Hempstead is located on Long Beach Island, and is bordered on the north by Reynolds Channel; on the east by the Hamlet of East Atlantic Beach; on the south and west by the Atlantic Ocean.
Atlantic Beach is one of the many villages and hamlets on Long Island where many of the places that have the community name as part of their mailing address are not in the village: places with an "Atlantic Beach, NY 11509" mailing address that are not in the Village of Atlantic Beach are in the Hamlet of East Atlantic Beach.
For a good set of town-by-town maps showing all the villages and hamlets in each of LI's 13 towns (3 in Nassau County and 10 in Suffolk County): Excellent Long Island Geographic Resource
