scoop Despite the fact that Greenvale consists of only twenty streets and lacks governmental autonomy, the village has remained prominent thanks to its commercial district, drawing visitors to the upscale Wheatley Plaza and other shopping and dining destinations around Glen Cove Road and 25A. “Unlike East Hills Village or Roslin, it doesn’t have its own governing body,” says Rich Brancforte, president of the Roslin Chamber of Commerce, which serves Greenville and several nearby communities.
This means it could take longer to go to city government – Greenvale is part of both the North Hempstead and Oyster Bay towns – rather than more local canals to get things done, but that doesn’t dampen the enthusiasm for the small village.
“Greenvale has a small-town flavor with a rich blend of residences, a sense of community and an appreciation of academic excellence,” says Joan Valenti, owner/broker of Valenti Realty Group.
Home prices range from the mid-$500,000 to several million dollars, with homes that include farmhouse, colonial and Mediterranean style.
The small village was once called Bull’s Head for the eponymous hotel there, and became a haven for the wealthy at the turn of the 20th century, when the Frys, Witnesses, Phipsis, and Vanderbilts moved to the area, earning the nickname Key to Gold Coast.
Today, many residents are descendants of the Italian and Polish workers who built those extravagant estates.
Located between Roslin and Brookville, Greenville is home to Roslin Cemetery, the final resting place of poet/journalist William Cullen Bryant and Frances Hodgson Burnett, author of The Secret Garden.
Compared to some other Long Island areas, Greenvale’s business hasn’t been hit hard by COVID-19, Branciforte says, adding that “empty storefronts don’t look good. It also has a negative impact on home value.”
To help rent out empty shops, the Chamber will launch a “Shopping” program in February, offering seminars and workshops for shop owners, real estate brokers and potential business owners.
