We are looking at homes in Roslyn Heights and Manhasset Hills. We like Manhasset Hills more but the school is Herricks vs. Roslyn Heights goes to Roslyn. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

If you look in Roslyn Heights, try to keep near the "Country Club" area - - thats if you have the $$$ for it. Some areas in Roslyn Heights are sort of dodgy....but it is a very quiet area with more hideous McMansions than probably anywhere else on LI.

Also, before you look, do a serious google earth search for your house as many homes in RH border on either LIE Service Roadways, Main Boulevards (Roslyn Rd., IE Willets), or are waaay too close to the LIRR train tracks!!!!

Default For those who may not be familiar with Roslyn Heights

Roslyn Heights can be a very confusing community because almost half the places that have a "Roslyn Heights, NY 11577" mailing address (1,704 acres) are not in the Hamlet of Roslyn Heights (944 acres).


For those who may not be familiar with Roslyn Heights:

Roslyn Heights is a hamlet (an unincorporated area) in the center part of the Town of North Hempstead, in the west-central part of Nassau County.

Beginning on the north and moving in a clockwise direction, the Hamlet of Roslyn Heights in the Town of North Hempstead is bordered on the north by the Village of Roslyn Estates, the Village of Roslyn and the Village of East Hills; on the east by the Village of East Hills and the Village of Old Westbury; on the south by the Village of Mineola and the Village of East Williston; and, on the west by the Village of East Williston, the Hamlet of Albertson, the Hamlet of Searingtown and the Village of North Hills.






Roslyn Heights is one of those villages and hamlets communities on Long Island where many of the places with the community name in their mailing address are not in the hamlet: places with a "Roslyn Heights, NY 11577" mailing address that are not in the Hamlet of Roslyn Heights are in the Hamlet of Albertson, the Village of North Hills and the Village of East Hills; and, at the same time, there are places in the Hamlet of Roslyn Heights that have an "Albertson, NY 11507" and "Williston Park, NY 11596" mailing address.

Default For those who may not be familiar with Manhasset Hills

Manhasset Hills is even more confusing because none of the places in the community have the hamlet name in their mailing address.


For those who may not be familiar with Manhasset Hills:

Manhasset Hills is a hamlet (an unincorporated area) in the southwest section of the Town of North Hempstead, in the west part of Nassau County.

Beginning on the north and moving in a clockwise direction, the Hamlet of Manhasset Hills in the Town of North Hempstead is bordered on the north by the Village of North Hills; on the east by the Hamlet of Searingtown and the Hamlet of Herricks; on the south by the Hamlet of North New Hyde Park; and, on the west by the Village of Lake Success.





Manhasset Hills is one of those many villages and hamlets on Long Island where none of the places in the community have the hamlet name in their mailing address: all places in the Hamlet of Manhasset Hills have a "New Hyde Park, NY 11040" mailing address.

Roslyn Heights is such a large area. Parts of Roslyn Heights are zoned for Roslyn S.D., parts are zoned for Herricks S.D. and parts are zoned for East Williston S.D.
Roslyn S.D. has a huge Jewish population and Herricks S.D. has a huge Asian population. East Williston S.D. is small but also highly rated. In fact, you can't go wrong with any of the three school districts as they are all very good. If you like Manhasset Hills more then definitely buy in Manhasset Hills.

I was in the same search as you about a year ago. I ended up buying in Searingtown, which is between the two, and herricks school district. I didnt really like the variation in neighborhoods in roslyn heights... and the prices of the houses were kind of off... (meaning that you had a 1.2M dollar house next to what I felt was a $300,000 house, but that $3000,000 house was selling for 700......

Another poster commented on the mcmansion, and I think that is what screws up the authenticity of the neighborhood.
