The Village of Oyster Bay Cove is in the Town of Oyster Bay, a township in Nassau County on western Long Island, New York. Incorporated in 1932, the harborside community boasts a rustic, tranquil atmosphere with the comforts of suburban living.

Local Area Information

Oyster Bay Cove is an incorporated village in the northeastern section of the Town of Oyster Bay, one of the three townships in Nassau County, on the North Shore of Long Island, New York. Its nearest neighbors include the hamlet of Oyster Bay to the northwest, East Norwich to the southwest, Syosset to the south, Laurel Hollow Village to the east, and Cove Neck Village to the northeast. The shoreline commands marvelous vistas of Oyster Bay Harbor.

Oyster Bay Cove shares a glorious storied past with neighbors Oyster Bay and Cove Neck as the home of the 26th U.S. President, Theodore Roosevelt. It now serves as his final resting place, his gravesite nestled in a scenic area at the edge of the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center. Along with the significant role in the country’s history, the village also shares a boating and sailing lifestyle with its neighboring waterfront communities.

The Oyster Bay Cove, NY 11771 ZIP code covers largely the areas north of Route 25A, also known in the village as North Hempstead Turnpike, while those south of it use the 11791 ZIP code. Both parts consist of predominantly residential areas with over 700 residences, many of which are single-family homes and several two- and three-family houses. These include luxury properties with pools and tennis courts, waterfront homes looking over the harbor with glorious water vistas and private docks, as well as rental houses.

At 4.187 square miles as of the 2020 census, Oyster Bay Cove is the seventh largest among the 64 villages in Nassau County, yet remains one of the most sparsely populated on Long Island. The properties tend to be impressive and built on expansive land, providing more buffer, privacy, and a calm feeling, as with many suburban luxury homes.

Oyster Bay Cove is about 30 miles northeast of Manhattan in New York City, and served by the Oyster Bay Station via the Long Island Rail Road’s Oyster Bay Branch on the north, and the Syosset Station via the Port Jefferson Branch on the south. Driving to or from the city takes about an hour and 12 minutes to an hour and 20 minutes via the Long Island Expressway or Northern State Parkway.
