Located on the historic turnpike that bears its name, Jericho enjoys a central location in Nassau County and easy access to the Long Island Expressway. This unincorporated area in the town of Oyster Bay is an exclusive community that boasts some of the leading public schools in the nation. Jericho features unusually attractive homes and properties, ranging from contemporary estates to turn-of-the-century homes that reflect the grandeur of the area's rich history. Just 45 minutes from New York City, Jericho offers easy access to popular Long Island attractions like the Nassau Coliseum, Belmont Park, the North Fork Theatre at Westbury, and Jones Beach Open Air Theater. Married couples and families tend to dominate the demographics, attracted at least in part by the reputation of the educational system.
