Syosset is a hamlet in Nassau County in the northeastern section of the Town of Oyster Bay. The hamlet is unofficially divided between north and south Syosset, with being separated by the train station. Homes in north Syosset tend to be older with more character. South Syosset, homes tend to be more cookie-cutter, where you can find starter homes. Syosset also offers some townhouse and apartment living, inluding gated a condo complex and apartment rentals.
There are three main retail areas in Syosset: the downtown business district, shopping centers at Oyster Bay Road and South Woodbury Road, and the commercial strip on the east-west Jericho Turnpike.
Commute to Penn Station via LIRR
Syosset is serviced by its own LIRR train station, with rides into the City being 47+ minutes. Residents in the southern part of Syosset often hop on the Hicksville train for faster and more frequent service.
A popular green space, the Syosset-Woodbury park, is actually a few blocks past the Syosset border.
What We Love
The wonder of Syosset is how quickly suburban subdivisions give way to wooded hillsides. One moment you’re driving past a strip mall; the next, you’re watching horses graze in someone’s backyard.
