One of the first planned communities in the country, it was begun by A.T. Stewart in 1869 and developed by his heirs until it was incorporated in 1919. Its 5.2-square miles are home to about 23, 300 residents. In the heart of Nassau County, it is the greater Garden City area's anchor community. It encompasses three golf courses, two universities, the famous Roosevelt Field high-end shopping center, Belmont Park racetrack, the Garden City Hotel, and has easy access to major highways connecting it to Manhattan, both north and south shores, and Suffolk County.

With the exterior looking like it was built yesterday, you cannot help but be carried back over a century to kinder, gentler times. Gambrel roofs preside over stucco and cedar-shake siding punctuated by a myriad of windows with shutters creating a symphony of romance and grace.
