Albertson

Albertson is home to the Clark Botanic Garden, a 12-acre "living museum" dedicated to horticultural education and research, and public play space at Albertson Park.


Although land-locked Albertson has no beachfront property, public beaches form the borders of neighboring communities Manhasset, Port Washington and Sea Cliff. More than 20 golf courses are within a 10-minute drive.


Townsend Albertson founded the community in the 17th century when he started a farm and gristmill in the area. Roads to New York were developed through town as early as the mid-1800s.


Homes from all four intervening centuries are available in this unincorporated hamlet, including historic houses in a variety of styles, churches and public buildings.


Shopping, dining and cultural offerings abound throughout Albertson and neighboring villages, including amusement parks and museums. The virtually unlimited opportunities of New York City are within easy reach via the Northern State Parkway and Long Island Rail Road.


Just over 6.000 people call Albertson home, mostly working families and professionals.


Albertson has its own fire department, and receives police service from Nassau County. It shares public elementary schools with neighboring Searville and high school students attend nearby Herricks High School.
