Living in the Massapequa neighborhood of Nassau County

Massapequa Apartments

Rental apartments in Massapequa are available on some of the prettiest stretches of real estate in all of Long Island's Nassau County, whether you're taking about Massapequa proper--or, the hamlet of Massapequa--or the geographic Massapequa township.


Massapequa apartments are located in the town of Oyster Bay (one of three towns in Nassau County, the other two being Hempstead and North Hempstead, as well as two cities and dozens of villages and hamlets), in the eastern section of Nassau County, on the south shore of Long Island.


The Massapequas--the four political entities--are bordered to north by the hamlet of Plainedge; to the east by the village of Amityville and the hamlet of North Amityville; to the south by the lovely South Oyster Bay; and to the west by Seaford and the hamlet of Wantaugh.


Suburban Living in Massapequa

NY apartments within the Massapequa hamlet enjoy ready access to the South Oyster Bay waterfront, and much of the character of this quiet, suburban community in acquired from its proximity to the shore. The housing stock here is dominated by single- and two-family homes, as well as the occasional low-rise residential building and garden apartment complex. A similar mix of rental apartments can also be found in next-door Massapequa Park, located just to the east of Massapequa hamlet, on the other side of Massapequa Preserve.


The Massapequa Preserve is a beautiful, nearly 425-acre piece of watershed property that features such diverse and ecologically valuable biospheres as freshwater swamps, marshes and sandy bogs, all of which provide a home for many rare and endangered Long Island plants, including orchids, carnivorous sundews and bladderworts. Residents of Massapequa also enjoy the hiking trails of Massapequa Preserve--including the longest such path in all of Nassau County, the Nassau-Suffolk Greenbelt Trail--as well as freshwater fishing in several of the Preserve's lakes and streams. 


Apartments in East Massapequa are coveted for their proximity to the South Oyster Bay waterfront as well, and though North Massapequa has no immediate shoreline, the quiet, tree-lined streets of this suburban community provide a palpable appeal. Many residents of Massapequa apartments commute into Manhattan for work, either by car via the Sunrise Highway or Southern State Parkway, or by the Long Island Rail Road, which has stations in both Massapequa and Massapequa Park, and gets you to Midtown’s Penn Station in under an hour.
