Great Neck Travel Guide

Great Neck

The western gateway to the North Shore of Long Island, Great Neck sits on a peninsula jutting into Long Island Sound. Ever since Dutch settlers founded the city in 1681, people have been attracted by its tranquil setting and proximity to Manhattan. Today the city is a thriving residential, shopping, and business area. Great Neck Plaza, a small village within the greater community that is filled with upscale shops, is its hub.
