History

The village was founded around 1922 on North Shore land owned by wealthy publisher Frank Munsey as a commuter town taking advantage of railroad stations a few miles away in Manhasset and Roslyn. Since it was also miles away from the Plandome Road School, the Manhasset school district built a conveniently located Munsey Park Elementary School in the 1930s.

  • The village became incorporated in 1930, establishing its own municipal government and zoning ability
  • The Munsey Park Village Hall is located at 1777 Northern Blvd. Opened on December 8, 1974, the village hall was built to conform to the standards of residential homes within the village.
  • Scenes from The Good Wife were shot within the village in 2009.

Facts

  • All homes in the village conform to colonial architecture, built with only the finest construction materials "above and beyond" normal building standards
