About Roslyn Harbor
Sitting along the shores of Hempstead Harbor on Long Island Sound is the Village of Roslyn Harbor. The village is distinguished by a more spread out, laid back and beachy feel. Most Roslyn Harbor homes are situated on 1-3 acre parcels and border either a pristine golf course, museum estate or a body of water.
Roslyn Harbor enjoys a unique position on the Gold Coast of Long Island. Residents enjoy a short and easy commute since Roslyn Harbor is only 40 minutes from New York City, with easy access to the Long Island Railroad, the Long Island Expressway and the Northern State Parkway. Most Roslyn Harbor homes are situated on 1-3 acre parcels and border either a pristine golf course, museum estate or a body of water.
Roslyn Harbor is minutes away from the finest restaurants, shopping, museums, beaches, marinas, and country clubs in all of Long Island and Westchester combined.
Nassau County Museum of Art
The Nassau County Museum of Art (NCMA) is located in the former Clayton estate in Roslyn Harbor. First established when the estate was turned over to Nassau County in 1969 and then privatized in 1989, it has become the most-attended suburban art museum in the country, as well as the highest-budgeted.
Its permanent collection holds about 600 works by 19th- and 20th-century European and American artists, including Georges Braque, Roy Lichtenstein and Robert Rauschenberg. Temporary exhibits have focused on pop art, the Latin Masters and fashion designer Iris Apfel. The museum's 165 acre grounds also include the Ridder MiniArtMuseum for Children, outdoor sculptures including works by Richard Serra, Tony Smith, Fernando Botero and Tom Otterness and formal gardens by Marian Coffin.
In January 2009 the museum launched the Ridder MiniArtMuseum for Children, the first fine art museum for children on Long Island. The MiniArtMuseum features engaging, interactive exhibitions and art activities for children and their families to enjoy together: Currently on view now through September 7 is Alice's Adventures in Wonderland featuring the art of Max Hergenrother.
