If you were looking for fresh potatoes or cucumbers, Plainview was the place to go up until the mid 20th century. What once stood as a large Long Island farming community is now comprised of quaint suburban homes, many of which are single family dwellings.
Believe us when we say Plainview is a town with a lot of spirit. When founded in the 1600s, Plainview was known as Manetto Hill. This name was the English adaptation of Plainview’s real original name, Manitou. In Native American tongue, Manitou means “spirit.” While the name may be different today, the charm still remains in this Town of Oyster Bay Hamlet.
Not only does PBS Station broadcast in Plainview, but this Nassau County hamlet is also home to the largest running club on Long Island, the Greater Long Island Runners Club.
When practicing for the club or just running for leisure, the 19 acre park in Plainview is the perfect location for some outdoor exercise. In addition to the walking and running trails, the park includes baseball fields, tennis courts and several pools to cool off in the summertime.
For more summertime fun, an excellent advantage to the Plainview area is it’s membership in the Town of Oyster Bay community, which allows residents access to one of the south shore’s most beautiful beaches, ToBay. Just past Jones Beach, ToBay is a more private (and discounted, for residents) summertime favorite destination.

Plainview also has a local youth boys and girls lacrosse league, so for our athletic children we can cheer on the Hawks on the sidelines.
The commuters in the family would be pleased to know the LIE and Northern State are both conveniently close, touching the northernmost border of Plainview. For public transit, the Hicksville train station is less than a 15 minute drive, bringing you into Midtown Manhattan in under an hour.
