Located in a historic district on the Gold Coast of Long Island's North, Shore Sea Cliff is One Square Mile. This Victorian gem is one of the best preserved villages on the East Coast and boasts of being one of the most popular seaside resorts at the turn of the twenteth-century. The real stars of the neighborhood are the many architectural beauties that have survived to delight another generation. Plan to take lots of photographs as you walk to narrow street and lanes.
Sea Cliff is a safe & quiet residential neighborhood and you won't need your car if you want something to eat or drink.
Within walking distance to the village, there's l pub that's very popular with the locals, a sushi restaurant and many more good places to dine at or take out from the deli or pizza parlor. My favorite market is North Shore Farms, the store with everything gourmet from fresh produce, to a sushi bar, homemade spinach pie right out of their in-store bakery and an array of cheeses fro around the world. The exact location id listed in your guide book.
If you need a hairdresser or an old fashioned barber shop, they are all in the village along with a vintage clothing store and a new wine shop.
You can take a short walk down to the beach or a short walk up the hill to see a spectacular vista from Memorial Park otherwise known as "Hippie Park."There are several other park throughout the One-Square-Mile village of Sea Cliff. The scenery is just as beautiful in cooler months as in the summer.
The Sea Cliff library, a former church, has printed walking tour guides and a helpful staff if you "need to know" anything. The library is one of my personal favorites. The third Thursday of each month the library hosts a jam where local musicians play mostly guitars & banjos with a few surprises.
Just a short drive from here, you can visit the Nassau County Museum of Art, the former Frick Mansion and estate. Often called the Rodeo Drive of Long Island, The Americana Shopping Center tenants include Prada, Brooks Brothers, Donna Karan, Dior, Escada, Ralph Lauren, Tiffany and Gucci to name a few. Apple has a beautiful store there too.
On your way back to Sea Cliff, you might go through the historic Village of Roslyn.
Sea Cliff was one of the favorite destinations of Manhattan's cafe society as they ferried from the city to Rum Pointe. The old village is still here to be enjoyed today. Come explore! Bring your camera along. You won't be disappointed.

Born in Brooklyn, studied interior design at Pratt Institute
After thirty-five years in the field I retired to write full time. My articles on design & architecture have been published & I am working on a second book.
I have lived in Sea Cliff since 1977 and never tire of the place or its residents.
The studio was designed as the ideal pied-a-terre for those who treasure small luxuries: B&W movies, sunsets, and walks along the beach (like me & my dog Blue).
An interesting book, good food shared with friends, and writing, all bring me joy. Simple things please me most.
