Wantagh Woods, between Jerusalem Avenue and Sunrise Highway, Route 135 and Wantagh Avenue. It has been my home since 1993. My children both attended the Wantagh Elementary School on Beech Street and Wantagh High School. What a fantastic neighborhood, filled with ranches, capes and colonials. Wantagh Woods also has wide bucolic avenues, an award winning school district, and a 45 minute commute to Manhattan by LIRR. It boasts restaurants and nightlife that rivals any community on Long Island.
Down south, Wantagh Park has picknicking, tennis, a world class boat ramp and marina, a dog run, a great sand filled kiddie park, and all the ballfields you want. There’s also fishing for scores along a two to three hundred yard long fishing pier. Just to the west of the park, the high ranches and colonials of Riverside Drive in Mandalay abut the deep water of Bellmore Creek. Lets not forget the bike path that starts in Cedar Creek Park on Merrick Road. Winding along the Wantagh State Parkway right of way, and over three bridges spanning Island and Goose Creeks, and Sloop Channel, the path was extended this spring of 2014, running now all the way to Tobay Beach to the east. The Nikon at Jones Beach Theater also boasts a Wantagh address, and plays host to numerous world class music and entertainment artists over the course of the season.
Jones Beach State Park
Of course the jewel of Wantagh is the Jones Beach State Park, Robert Moses’s vision, which has received a new revitalization plan this year. At last tally, 65 million dollars was being put aside to bring the Park up to 2014 standards. Give me a call, and let me show you around my hometown.
