Stewart Manor is a village in the Town of Hempstead in Nassau County, on Long Island, in New York, United States. The population was 1,992 at the time of the 2020 census.


Stewart Manor had been called Sunrise Gardens between 1925 and 1927, after a real estate development in the area.[2] Residents changed the name to Stewart Manor in 1927.[2][3] The name reflects the community's proximity to the Stewart Manor station on the Long Island Rail Road in the adjacent village, Garden City, which is named after Alexander Turney Stewart.[3]

Stewart Manor incorporated as a village in 1927.[2][3]

The Stewart Manor Municipal Building, which houses the village's government and contains its firehouse, was erected in 1936.[4] The building was expanded in 1987 and again in 2002.[4]
