Hewlett Neck is a village in Nassau County, New York. The population was 445 at the time of the 2010 census. The Village of Hewlett Neck is located within the Town of Hempstead.

Hewlett Neck is included in the Five Towns, which is usually said to comprise the villages of Lawrence and Cedarhurst, as well as the hamlets of Woodmere, Inwood, and "The Hewletts," which consist of the villages of Hewlett Bay Park, Hewlett Harbor, Hewlett Neck, Hewlett, and Woodsburgh.[3]

Hewlett Neck consists of many large homes, mansions, villas and former plantations with very large property, a few dating back to the time of the American Revolution. The area, like Back/Old Lawrence, is unique because its rural affluence is similar in character to the more well known Gold Coast of the North Shore instead of being more urbanized like the rest of the South Shore of Nassau County.

In January 2011, Hewlett Neck was rated the No. 6 most affluent neighborhood in America by Forbes with a median household income of $239,000.[4]
