Kings Point Real Estate

Kings Point is a village and a part of Great Neck in Nassau County, New York on the North Shore of Long Island. As of the United States 2010 Census, the village population was 5,005. The Village of Kings Point is in the Town of North Hempstead. It is on the Great Neck Peninsula on the North Shore of Long Island and is often grouped together with the other hamlets and villages referred to collectively as "Great Neck". It is part of the Great Neck School District, with resident students attending Great Neck North High School.

Kings Point is the home of the United States Merchant Marine Academy and its maritime museum. The founder of W. R. Grace and Company, and former New York City mayor, W.R. Grace, lived in Kings Point. It was during this time he accepted the Statue of Liberty from the people of France. A custom home built for Grace in 1880 features 11 fireplaces a five-car garage[on a nearly two acre property. It is located on Blue Sea Lane and known as "Grace Mansion".

The Great Neck North Middle School is located on the border of Great Neck Village and Kings Point, with all students north of the train station going to North Middle.

F. Scott Fitzgerald lived in Great Neck, at six Gateway Drive in Great Neck Estates, which is probably Great Neck's greatest claim to fame. In the 1920s, he lived in Great Neck in a modest house, which was not dissimilar to that of Nick, the protagonist of his novel, The Great Gatsby. It is said[ that Fitzgerald modeled West Egg, the fictional town in which Nick lived, next to the mansion of Jay Gatsby, after Great Neck (specifically Kings Point), for its epitome of Nouveau Riche gaudiness and the atmosphere and lifestyle there. He modeled East Egg, the town where Daisy and Tom live, after Great Neck's eastern neighbor Sands Point, which is part of Port Washington.[ The light from the book can been seen from Stepping Stone Park.
