Geography[edit]

North Woodmere is directly north of Woodmere, but separated from it by Motts Creek.[2] Access to Woodmere is available via Branch Boulevard, Brookfield Road, and a footbridge over the creek. Unlike Woodmere, North Woodmere is not part of the Five Towns, which consists of the villages of Lawrence and Cedarhurst, the hamlets of Hewlett, Inwood and Woodmere.[2]

Hungry Harbor Road is the main east-west route through North Woodmere, connecting with Branch Boulevard (to Cedarhurst) and Brookfield-Rosedale Road (to Valley Stream). Park Lane provides access to upper Rosedale Road, and from there to Francis Lewis Boulevard, Sunrise Highway, and the Belt Parkway/Cross Island Parkway junction.[2]

Demographics[edit]

North Woodmere houses many residents with advanced degrees and higher educational attainment. Many residents attend four year colleges and professional schools thereafter. There is an educational culture throughout the town. [3]

Government[edit]

North Woodmere is represented by Councilman Bruce Blakeman. [4]

Economy[edit]

A shopping mall is located on Rosedale Road. A former shopping center on Hungry Harbor Road became an assisted living center.

The community is home to North Woodmere Park, a Nassau County park. The park includes a pool complex, a playground, a nine-hole golf course, a lighted driving range, and a fishing area.[5]

Culture[edit]

North Woodmere is home to several synagogues, including Congregation Ohr Torah, Young Israel of North Woodmere, Beis Haknesses of North Woodmere, Temple Hillel, Kehillas Bnei Hayeshivos, and Khal Lev Avos. In 1984, Ronald Reagan addressed Temple Hillel.[6]
