Living in the Woodbury neighborhood of Nassau County

Woodbury Apartments

Woodbury apartments are available in this pretty, suburban hamlet in the north-central part of Nassau County, Long Island.


NY apartments in this family-friendly community are generally found in either single- or multi-family houses, usually on modest to mid-sized lots, or in low-rise residential buildings and garden apartment complexes.


Woodbury is one of 18 hamlets in the town of Oyster Bay, which runs the entire width of Long Island, from the Long Island Sound at the north to the Atlantic Ocean at the south. The hamlet of Woodbury is approximately five square miles in area, and is bordered by the village of Laurel Hollow to the north, by the hamlet of West Hills and the town of Huntington to the east, by the hamlet of Plainview to the south, and by the hamlet of Syosset to the west.


Living in Woodbury

As is the case in most suburban, Long Island communities, many residents of Woodbury apartments commute into Manhattan for work. The Long Island Rail Road has stations in two locations right on the outskirts of Woodbury, in both Syosset and Cold Spring Harbor, and the trip to Midtown’s Penn Station takes about 50 minutes during rush hour. Some residents choose to drive into Manhattan (or elsewhere, of course) for work, using the Long Island Expressway, the Northern State Parkway, while not passing through Woodbury, are easily accessible from hamlet's own quiet streets. 


Woodbury residents enjoy easy access to parks and, by driving either north to the Long Island Sound or south to Atlantic Ocean, some of the prettiest beaches on Long Island. The biggest park in Woodbury itself is the Stillwell Woods County Park, a 270-acre preserve which, in addition to playing fields, playgrounds, and lawns for relaxing, also includes hiking trails and one of the best mountain bike courses in all of the Metropolitan Area--as one enthusiast says, you'll ride "in and out of gullies, riding over logs, down some technical steeps with roots and branches, sandy hills, pebbly hills, winding turns"--designed for bikers of all skill and experience levels.
