Local Area Information

Bellmore is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in the Town of Hempstead, Nassau County, on the South Shore of Long Island, New York. Its southern part is sometimes called “South Bellmore,” and immediately north of the hamlet is North Bellmore, with which it shares the 11710 ZIP code. Together, they are collectively known as “The Bellmores.”

Bellmore’s immediate neighbor to the west is Merrick and to the east is Wantagh, said to be the “gateway to Jones Beach” for the direct linkage between the mainland and the barrier island provided by the Wantagh State Parkway. Bellmore itself is only about five miles — or eight minutes — from the world-famous Jones Beach State Park and its tons of recreational offerings.

The south side of Bellmore is on Hempstead Bay’s East Bay and has plenty of waterfront properties with captivating water views and private boat docks. Many other homes located near the water’s edge enjoy the cool bay breezes and easy access to the water. Besides single-family homes, the community also offers condos, like the 25 or so units at Bedford Square.

Bellmore properties range from 1- to 4-bedroom homes, though there is also a wealth of larger dwellings with 5 or more bedrooms, such as some of the multifamily houses and luxury residences. The excellent diversity of property stock also includes new constructions, undeveloped vacant lots, rental properties and homes with one or more bedrooms on first floor, private pools and other features.

The Bellmore Memorial Library has been serving the area since its humble beginnings in 1948. It began in a single room of an old wooden school with borrowed or donated books, and now, more than 70 years later, it continues to provide information as well as cultural and recreational services and is a vital community center. Residents enjoy the convenience of their own train station on the Long Island Rail Road’s Babylon Branch, making the community a “commuter’s paradise” since the 1920s.
