Kings Point

North of Great Neck, deep into the Peninsula on the North Shore of Long Island, sits the Village of Kings Point. Historically a lush secluded area, residents still covet the privacy that living on the peninsula offers. Though not populated with as many of the expansive sprawling estates the area was known for during the early 1900s, Kings Point is still home to magnificent Gatsby-era residences many maintaining ornate colonial-French mansion hybrids in brick or limestone with gambrel roofs, wrought-iron detailing, gilded embellishments, arched windows and balustrades.

There are multiple parks and a waterfront for boating, with several private neighborhood associations offering swimming pools, docks and other amenities. There are no commercial businesses in Kings Point but the shopping districts on Middle Neck Road in Great Neck and Americana Manhasset on Northern Blvd. in Manhasset offer fine selections.

There is a short 25 minute trip from the Great Neck LIRR Station into Manhattan and the easy access to the main thoroughfare of Northern Blvd keeps the drive into the City under 60 minutes.
