The Village of Baxter Estates, with a population of approximately 1,000 people, is a beautiful suburban enclave situated on Manhasset Bay in the town of Port Washington on the north shore of Long Island. Baxter Estates is a peaceful oasis with a friendly atmosphere, yet is conveniently located only a 40-minute commuter train ride from the heart of Manhattan. Our Village encompasses a residential area and a commercial section along the north side of Port Washington’s Main Street (see Map).

With its easy access to Long Island’s outstanding public facilities – parks, beaches, boating, fishing and other recreational facilities - and its proximity to the Metropolitan area’s world-renowned cultural and civic attractions, Baxter Estates captures suburban living at its very best.

An elected Mayor and Board of Trustees, as well as appointed bodies - Board of Zoning Appeals, Tree Committee and Landmarks Preservation Commission – and an appointed Building Inspector oversee the operation of our village and work to preserve and foster its parkland appearance and its peaceful and friendly atmosphere.

Running through the heart of our Village is the 5.4-acre Barbara Johnson Park and Preserve at Baxter’s Pond, a watershed area which is owned and maintained by Nassau County. Our Village was instrumental in the formation two years ago of Baxter’s Pond Foundation, a not-for-profit entity which raises private donations to carry out maintenance and beautification activities at the Park and Preserve in coordination with County officials. The Foundation has carried out several successful beautification projects at the Pond and Preserve and is working with County officials on additional programs.

Our Village is part of the Port Washington School District, which is noted for its academic excellence, artistic and musical endeavors and athletic achievements. Schreiber High School students have consistently and significantly scored above the state and national average.
