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.
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.

But the area also includes some unincorporated communities and two tiny villages, Hewlett Bay Park and Woodsburgh, that are not added to the final total." The area consists of many large homes, mansions, beach side villas and former plantations with very large property, a few dating back to the time of the American Revolution.
