So you're thinking about living in...
Long Beach, New York

Long Beach is one of the older, more established communities on Long Island. Founded in 1880 when the first Long beach hotel was built, it continued to grow at a steady pace (the railroad arrived in 1882 promoting Long Beach as a resort community for vacationers). The major attraction in its development was the fact that Long Beach is an oceanfront island along Long Island’s south shore which has a moderating effect on its climate. Long beach averages 10 degrees warmer in the winter and 10 degrees cooler in the summer than inland communities on Long Island and New York City. With the ocean on one side and the bay on the other, Long beach developed as a seaside community.

The City of Long Beach is one of only two cities on Long Island (the other is Glen Cove.) Although geographically within the Town of Hempstead located in Nassau County, Long Beach is politically independent and self-governing.

The City of Long Beach has a population of about 35,000 persons with over 4,000 children attending Long beach schools. Its two major downtown shopping areas along Park Avenue and West Beech Street are a hub of activity supported by the strong Long beach Chamber of Commerce, in existence for over six decades.

The bayside of the community is lined with homes and private docks. Waterfront homes can also be found in an area called the Canals. Man-made extensions were created when canals were dug connecting areas of Long Beach to the bay. In fact no home is more than a few hundred yards from the water as Long beach is ½ mile wide at its widest point.

In terms of housing, Long Beach offers one of the widest ranges of living styles on long island. New condominiums which include all kinds of self-contained recreational facilities are springing up along a portion of the oceanfront. New homes embodying the latest architectural designs can be seen along with the older gracious dwellings, many of which were built between 1908 & 1930. Older smaller homes are also to be found throughout the island, which once were seasonal summer homes, but now serve as year round residences. Much of Long beach is going through revitalization and redevelopment. Part of the downtown commercial shopping area along Park Avenue underwent a beautiful facelift including restoration of the historic train station and the addition of many new shops and restaurants. Long beach is also going through a housing boom as older buildings are being replaced or reconstructed into new modern residences both along the shore and throughout the inland parts of the City.

Long Beach is abundant in natural beauty – from the sparkling white beaches and bright beautiful waves to the peaceful serenity of the bayfront. But there’s a brilliantly colorful side of the city as well – the dazzling public gardens that line the streets.

*Excerpted from Relocate-America.com’s 2005 list of “America’s Top 100 Places to Live”! Long Beach, New York
was ranked #2.

Note: On October 29th, 2012 Superstorm Sandy devastated the City of Long Beach. One year later the City rebuilt the iconic 2.2 mile boardwalk with Brazilian hardwood and concrete. The City also repaired parts of its’ infrastructure. Along with returning and new business owners, many homes were also raised, or leveled and new FEMA compliant homes were constructed. Although “Sandy” effected pricing causing an initial 20% reduction, pricing is expected to stabilize by the year 2015. A better, smarter and stronger city will emerge.
