About this community

Located just East of Great Neck and West Hempstead, Plainview, Long Island presents a modest, tight- knit, out-of-town community with all the amenities of New York living. Plainview’s over 250 Orthodox families benefit from 3 growing synagogues (The Young Israel of Plainview, the Sephardic Synagogue, the Plainview Synagogue), the JCC, a local Yeshiva (Mercaz Academy), mikvah, and eruv.

Affordable kosher food and catering is provided by Shoprite which boasts a dedicated Kosher kitchen, bakery, and takeout. Home prices start at $500K with taxes commensurate with other Long Island communities.

The Long Island Railroad offers express commuting to Midtown Manhattan in just 40 minutes. Further, Plainview’s location opens the door to career opportunities on Eastern Long Island where technology, engineering, and medical fields continue to grow.
