An absolute must see!
Merrick has it all.
My favorite quote from the NYT article states, (buyers Kopelowitz) "hoped to buy on the North Shore, but were turned off by the drive from Manhattan to Port Washington and the train ride to Syosset. They headed south,"
Buyers are looking, interest is high and multiple offers (not seen in recent years) are back.
Merrick is conveniently located 45 minutes from the City and it is well-known for its award-winning schools.
There is easy access to highways, and, short driving distances (or walkability) to public transportation, a main street with mom and pop shops and old favorites like Chico's and Starbucks. There are restaurants galore, and a wide array of houses of worship.
Merrick Golf Course, Norman J. Levy Park & Preserve, (affectionately known as Merrick Mountain and featuring kayaking) Merrick Cinemas offering special bargain pricing and Jewel Quinn Senior Community Services, are all there.
Ten minutes to Jones Beach as well as to Roosevelt Field Mall compliment south shore living.
