Manhasset is an excellent neighborhood to raise your family. The schools are terrific, and the teachers push for the very best in their students. The community is remarkable, where the residents watch out for the children, their neighbors homes, and the overall safety of neighborhood. The children will feel included in whatever they choose to do,. Many clubs to enjoy, camps that you can do with your friends over the summer, A multitude of sports, which get the whole family together on weekends. It's truely one of the very best.
It's a great place to raise your kids. The public schools are amazing, allowing kids to join any type of extracurricular you could think of. And most kids ends up going to amazing colleges. The train stations make it easy to go to NYC in just 45 minutes, great for work and to go out. I grew up in Manhasset and loved it.
