Cove Neck is a picturesque village in Nassau County’s Town of Oyster Bay on Long Island’s renowned North Shore. The bucolic landscape is dotted with marvelous single-family homes and historic Gold Coast mansions, the most famous of which is Sagamore Hill, Theodore Roosevelt’s former home that became the country’s first “Summer White House” when he became a U.S. president.

Local Area Information

Cove Neck is an incorporated village in the Town of Oyster Bay near the eastern border of Nassau County on the North Shore of Long Island, New York. The south side is bordered by the villages of Oyster Bay Cove and Laurel Hollow, and the rest is surrounded by the waters of Oyster Bay and Cold Spring Harbors. In the 2020 census, its population count of 293 made it the least populous among Nassau County’s 64 villages and the fifth least populous among the 96 villages on Long Island.

Cove Neck is among the wealthy coastal communities on Long Island’s legendary “Gold Coast,” which gained prominence when many lavish estates and mansions were built in the area at the turn of the 20th century. The village’s most significant slice of history is carefully preserved on the grounds and in the museum of the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site. It was once the home of Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th U.S. President and Cove Neck’s most famous and beloved resident.

After his presidency, Roosevelt continued to live at Sagamore Hill until his death in 1919, and the community was incorporated as a village in 1927. Other estates in Cove Neck include Dolonar, the Harbourwood farm complex and Yellowbanks, the historic estate of James Alfred Roosevelt that served as his summer home and is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Besides historic estates and Gold Coast mansions, Cove Neck’s single-family homes include more contemporary luxury properties and waterfront houses enjoying breathtaking water views of the harbor and easy access to the Long Island Sound. Plenty are much larger than 4-bedroom homes and feature a wealth of amenities, including private pools on expansive lots.

Cove Neck is roughly 30 miles northeast of Manhattan, New York City, and served by the Oyster Bay Station via the Long Island Rail Road’s Oyster Bay Branch. Driving to or from the city takes about an hour and five minutes to an hour and a half via the Long Island Expressway or Northern State Parkway. The village uses the 11771 ZIP code.

Beaches & Parks

Sagamore Hill National Historic Site is a sprawling historic estate and was the former home of the 26th U.S. president, Theodore Roosevelt. It showcases many of the family’s original furnishings and is open to the public for guided tours. The compound is now the site of the Old Orchard Museum (also known as the Theodore Roosevelt Museum) and Visitor Center. There is a 0.7-mile Nature Trail that extends to the site’s eastern side and has a few benches scattered along the way for resting, relaxing and nature viewing.

The Nature Trail leads to the Eel Creek Boardwalk, which provides visitors access to the salt marsh and the Cold Spring Harbor family beach of the Roosevelts, where they would frequently swim and camp. The coastline is part of the Congressman Lester Wolff Oyster Bay National Wildlife Refuge, the largest of its kind on Long Island. It consists of exceptional marine habitats that support diverse species of aquatic wildlife and migratory waterfowl, which visitors could view from the boardwalk.
