A View from Village Hall
How privileged are we to be living in such a magnificent place?
From the moment you enter the Incorporated Village of Hewlett Harbor, you know you’ve entered a unique community. Quiet, tranquil and inviting are words often used to describe our park-like setting and the experience that envelops this little jewel on the south western end of Nassau County.
Only 45 minutes from the relentless electricity of New York City, Hewlett Harbor is an oasis – a community of 440 homes embraced by the channels and inlets of the Atlantic Ocean. It is a peaceful place to raise a family and a restful place to call home.
But, above all else, Hewlett Harbor’s greatest asset is its residents – a bold mix of young and those who are forever young-at-heart; those who are passionate about life and just as passionate about where they live. We have more than our fair share of titans of business and industry and some of the most charitable people on earth. Many of our residents have made their mark on the global stage and they contribute everyday and handsomely to causes closer to home.
As mayor of Hewlett Harbor, I marvel at the state of our community today and I am most enthusiastic about its future. Homes are being renovated at a historic pace and new home construction is above the national average. The Village infrastructure is being upgraded and we are working with the Town of Hempstead and Nassau County to make sure that our natural resources will welcome future generations to come.
I urge you to enjoy the Village. Don’t take any part of it for granted. Experience it as an extension to your home. Walk, bike, skate and run the community. Visit Willow Pond. Gaze at birds, turtles and our jumping fish. Visit the Mallow Reach Bridge at sunset for a breathtaking view of the channel and the Seawane Club. Enjoy the park, we call home!
Mark Weiss, Mayor
