Wantagh Real Estate

Wantagh, NY Real Estate, Wantagh Area and Community Information

Wantagh, New York, is a hamlet in the Town of Hempstead in Nassau County. This community of about 19,000 residents has long been known as "The Gateway to Jones Beach."

History

Wantagh is named after the chief of the Merokee tribe that inhabited the area in the mid-1600s. The initial Dutch settlers came from the New Amsterdam colony to the west. English settlers arrived from settlements in Connecticut and Massachusetts. In 1674, the Treaty of Westminster incorporated Long Island into the New York colony.

Mail service began in 1780, and the first post office opened in 1837. Wantagh was largely agrarian in nature until the arrival of the Sunrise Highway in 1929. After that, an influx of new residents and commercial fishermen permanently changed the complexion of the region.

Parks and Recreation

Directly south of Wantagh is Jones Beach State Park, home of the longest stretch of public beach in the world. Six miles of white sand beach is complemented by a two-mile boardwalk and concessions. The park also offers two outdoor swimming pools, mini-golf, beach volleyball, paddle tennis, shuffleboard and even a roller rink. The setting is enhanced by the historic art deco architecture found here.

Wantagh Park faces Jones Beach. The extensive swimming complex includes six pools. Amenities also include bocce courts, tennis courts, lighted ball fields and hiking trails. There's a marina, and the fishing pier is open throughout the year. There's even a fenced-in dog park.

The 15-acre Mill Pond entices anglers with a wide variety of gamefish and panfish, including largemouth bass, chain pickerel, bluegill, black crappie and yellow perch. The park also offers a paved hiking trail.

 

Attractions and Activities

The Theodore Roosevelt Nature Center is located at the west end of the state park at Jones Beach.

The kids will delight in experiencing the butterfly garden and Discovery Bone Cove. Nature lovers with Wantagh properties can stroll along the educational boardwalk and experience the South Shore Estuary Reserve.

Events

The Bethpage Air Show showcases both stunt planes and fighter jets at Jones Beach State Park during the Memorial Day weekend. In the past, world-renowned groups like the Blue Angels and the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds have performed at the air show. At Jones Beach Theater, those with Wantagh NY real estate enjoy a variety of performances during the main season.
