Old WoodmereWoodmere, LI, NY is located on the South Shore of Long Island, about 20 minutes from JFK Airport. It is easily accessible by car, bus and the Long Island Railroad (LIRR). It is the largest community in the 5 Towns, covering 2.6 square miles, and is also the most populous with approx 16,000 residents. It is an unincorporated area in the Five Towns and is governed by the Town of Hempstead. The smaller southern portion of Woodmere, known as Woodsburgh, is an incorporated village. It has one of the highest median incomes on LI.

In my opinion the Old Woodmere area is the most interesting part of Woodmere. The houses in Old Woodmere are exactly that, older. Many of the homes were built as early as 1900. There is a variety of Tudors, Colonials and Dutch Colonials. Many are built of brick and the original cement stucco. Every houses is different, every house has its own charm and character.

They don't make homes like these anymore. High ceilings with detail moldings, hardwood floors throughout, plaster walls and lots of Old World charm. It is a residential neighborhood with little to no commercial properties. Big old trees abound.

Old Woodmere bordered by Woodsburgh, Hewlett Neck, Hewlett Harbor and Hewlett Bay Park. Old Woodmere is within walking distance of the Woodmere shopping area along Broadway. It includes a large variety of stores, Woodmere Bowling, dining, nail salons and more. The recently redone Hewlett Woodmere Public Library is also located on Broadway, across from Trinity Church

Old Woodmere is located in the Hewlett Woodmere Public School system - School District 14. The childrenHewlett Elementary School attend FECC (Franklin Early Childhood Center) for Pre=K, K and 1st grade. Then it's off to Hewlett Elementary School, Woodmere Middle School and then GW Hewlett High School.

Typically homes in Old Woodmere start in the $ 500,000's but there are fixer uppers that can be had for less.


I live in Old Woodmere, have raised 2 children here, and as you can tell I love it! If you are looking to buy or sell in Old Woodmere or anywhere else in the Five Towns and vicinity I would be happy to help you!

Just stopping in to see if I'm on the right track with this contest thing. I really like the MLS slide show window. Is that something I can do, or, does it come from your MLS?

The slide show comes from my IDX provider - it is one of a bunch of very cool things that they offer.

Hewlett is a beautiful town, my daughter did her student teaching there about 6 years ago.
