An iconic 44-foot clock tower, built in 1895, stands sentry over Roslyn's quaint downtown and made a cameo appearance in the classic film “The World According to Garp.”  Downtown Roslyn Village is home to a variety of upscale restaurants, well-curated boutiques, a movie theater and an LIRR station. The Village's Gerry Pond Park has walking paths, a playground and a duck pond and is the location of the Bryant Library. 


East Hills, another Roslyn community, fortuitously transformed a former National Guard campus into an extremely successful park facility for the exclusive use of East Hills Residents. The 50-acre park consists of nature walks, a senior center, expansive pool, tennis and basketball courts, as well as recreational facilities.  East Hills residents also enjoy their own private security force.


Homes in the Roslyn and East Hills communities range from historic homes rimming the Village to brand new luxury construction and almost everything in between.  Other Roslyn neighborhoods include Roslyn Heights and Roslyn Harbor. 



The real estate markets of Roslyn and East Hills in New York are presenting nuanced trends that offer a mixed bag of opportunities for potential homebuyers and investors. In East Hills, the market has been labeled as somewhat competitive, with a notable decrease in the median sale price to $1.4 million in February 2024, down 10.4% year-over-year. Despite this price adjustment, homes are moving much faster than in the previous year, with the average days on market plummeting from 115 days to just 21 days. This acceleration in sales pace suggests a sustained buyer interest, possibly fueled by the luxury status of the area and the added leverage buyers now have in negotiations due to the slight dip in prices. On the other hand, Roslyn's market, while not as thoroughly documented, appears to be on a different trajectory with a modest increase in median sale price to $1.2 million in January 2024, marking a 4.2% rise year-over-year. This growth, albeit slower, indicates a stable market that could be mirroring the trends observed in neighboring East Hills, given their geographical and market similarities.
