Syosset Real Estate

In Syosset, a densely suburban hamlet in the Nassau County town of Oyster Bay where home prices climbed steeply through the 1990's, when people look for location, location, location, the location that seems to count the most is the Syosset Central School District. Many who buy do not need convincing.

Besides top-ranked schools, Syosset offers a Long Island Rail Road connection that gets commuters to the city in under an hour and -- compared with neighboring areas and other parts of the school district -- relative affordability in a community where single-family dwellings predominate. All these factors combine to provide what real estate professionals say is good value for prospective buyers.

In upper-rank Nassau County public school districts, 95 percent of students typically go on to either four- or two-year colleges. Syosset schools top even this, sending 94 percent of 1999 graduates to four-year colleges and universities, the highest percentage in the county, according to the district.

The high school and the district's two middle schools for grades 6 through 8 have each been named schools of excellence within the past several years by the United States Department of Education. The high school offers 23 advanced placement courses in which students may earn college credits.

The percentage of students who scored at or above grade level in state standardized tests for reading and math is among the highest for any Long Island district. A world language course starts in first grade, when students choose among French, Spanish and Italian. All study Latin in fifth grade. In addition to these languages, Russian, Japanese and American Sign Language are taught in the high school. The district plans to introduce Mandarin Chinese to the elementary school program next fall.

Our Lady of Mercy Academy, a colonnaded private Catholic secondary school for girls on a spacious campus in Syosset, has 500 students in grades 9 through 12, its peak capacity. Sister Margaret Ann Hartigan, the co-principal, said virtually all of the some 110 graduates in the class of 2000 went on to college, with 60 percent being offered scholarships. Tuition is $5,200 a year, she said.

St. Edward the Confessor School, a Catholic elementary school in Syosset, has 272 students in pre-K through grade 8. The school's principal, Anne Schaefer, said a nursery program for 3-year-olds would begin in September. The school emphasizes religious training and academics. Average tuition is $2,600, she said.

If schools are a strong suit, traffic on main roads is the bane of Syosset. Several roads converge in a knot in the downtown around Jackson Avenue, a local shopping area. The sprawling railroad station parking lot, where town parking permits cost $20 for two years, is filled on weekdays. Jericho Turnpike, Route 25, a major shopping area, is also often congested.

The Long Island Expressway and the Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway, though convenient, bring noise to abutting streets in an area once filled with woods and farms.

The 2000 census also showed that Syosset's Asian population was 12.7 percent, one of the highest rates on Long Island.

For recreation there is the 48-acre Syosset Woodbury Community Park. The park, run by the Town of Oyster Bay, has a swimming pool, an ice rink, a children's playground and picnic areas, three baseball fields, basketball, tennis, volleyball, horseshoes, shuffleboard and a nature trail.

An 18-hole, 121-acre town golf course in nearby Woodbury is open Tuesday through Sunday all year, weather permitting, and has a putting green and a driving range. Individual memberships cost $150 annually for town residents. Members pay $20 for weekday play and $27 on weekends and may make reservations. Nonmember town residents pay $30 during the week and $36 on weekends. Fees are doubled for nonresidents.

North Shore University Hospital at Syosset, a part of the 18-hospital North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, is an acute-care community hospital with 136 beds. It is known for its Center for Surgical Specialties, the Cohn Pain Management Center and an eye-surgery center.

CODES: Area, 516; ZIP, 11791. DISTANCE FROM MIDTOWN MANHATTAN: 28 miles. RUSH-HOUR COMMUTATION: 50 minutes on Long Island Rail Road; $7 one-way, $154 monthly. GOVERNMENT: Town of Oyster Bay supervisor (John Venditto, Republican), elected to a two-year term; six-member Town Board, elected to four-year terms.
