Garden City

Garden City

Nestled under the tranquil tree-lined streets, Garden City is an elegant and picturesque suburban community boasting multi million-dollar homes. The development of Garden City was arranged by merchant millionaire Alexander Turney Stewarts in 1869. One of America’s earliest planned villages, Garden City was originally developed with wide avenues, hundreds of trees and shrubs, sixty well-built homes on spacious lots, a handsome hotel on a 30-acre park – all reached via its own railroad line, A.T. Stewart’s Central Railroad of Long Island.

The Neighbors

Affluent residents who enjoy access to beautiful parks, great schools, and an easy commute to NYC.

With an average home sold price near $1,000,000, residents of Garden City are some of the most affluent in the area. Having access to some of the best recreational services in the city (including golf courses, country clubs, restaurants, parks, and a village pool), Garden City attracts those looking for a quiet and relaxed vibe while enjoying a bustling and beautiful community.

What to Expect

Laidback and relaxed neighborhood characterized by tree-shaded avenues, manicured gardens and handsome Tudors and colonials.

Franklin Avenue, the main north-south corridor, is lined with office buildings, financial institutions, a Lord & Taylor, a Sears, jewelers, a furrier and an array of restaurants. Running east-west, Seventh Street has gift and clothing boutiques. About 10 of the village’s original 19th-century mansard-roofed houses remain; one, which was moved, houses the Garden City Historical Society. Garbage is picked up behind houses which helps to maintain the clean, refined  aesthetic of the community.
