Great Neck is one of the oldest areas on the North Shore of Long Island. The village, which was officially incorporated in 1922, was a settlement dating back to the 17th century colonial times. For much of its history, Great Neck was mostly farmland without a large population. This began to change in the middle of the 20th century when transportation and real estate developments made Great Neck a highly desired placed to live. The population of Great Neck exploded, from just over 4,000 residents in 1940 to almost 11,000 in 1970. If you live in Great Neck, your zip code is going to be 11020, 11021, 11022, 11023, 11024, 11025, 11026, or 11027.
Sometimes called “the old village” due to its history as one of the first settlements in the area, Great Neck has continued to be an attractive place to live. In addition to its strong schools and convenient transportation options, Great Neck has a strong sense of community. It has also become a diverse place to live, as a significant number of Asian and Iranian families have gradually moved to the area.
