Strong Family Community Along Little Neck Bay

Transport into Manhattan is a cinch on major highways or the LIRR, but this waterfront neighborhood has a country feel to it and a very strong sense of community pride. Families are drawn here for the excellent schools, good shopping and safe, park-like setting. Housing includes everything from one-bedroom co-ops to 15-room mansions on the water. Within Douglaston are several smaller nabes, including the much sought after Douglas Manor, with its winding, hilly streets and large homes. Homeowners in Douglas Manor have access to four acres of playing fields, a marina and private park land along the Little Neck Bay coastline. It’s currently protected from over development and aside from a few condo developments, even the newer homes are tasteful.
