Nassau County NY Area Guides
While Suffolk County provides a more rustic countryside feel on eastern Long Island, Nassau County on the west side offers a similar vibe with the added benefits and convenience of being closer to New York City. Nassau County is made up of three townships — Hempstead, North Hempstead and Oyster Bay — and two cities, Glen Cove and Long Beach. Each township comprises a number of hamlets and villages, and every community is unique in its own way.
Nassau County is where Long Island’s fabled North Shore, with its Gatsby-style Gold Coast mansions and estates, begins and extends several miles east into Suffolk County. The North Shore and South Shore respectively overlook the Long Island Sound and the Great South Bay and offer plenty of gorgeous water views and fun waterfront activities.
