Message from the Mayor


Welcome to Roslyn, NY

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Village Administrative Staff, I would like to welcome you to the Village of Roslyn’s website. Roslyn is a beautiful, historic village, nestled in the hills of Long Island’s Gold Coast. It is situated on Hempstead Harbor, and at one time was an active mercantile port. Today we are known for our collection of beautifully restored houses and buildings, historic monuments and vibrant Downtown. We are also home to the Bryant Library which hosts lectures, book signings and art exhibits and Gerry Park, a beautiful 16 acre green space in the middle of the Village where you can sleigh ride in the winter and enjoy outdoor concerts (sponsored by the Roslyn Chamber of Commerce) during the summer.

Our Downtown is filled with many wonderful shops and restaurants. You can make a day of it strolling through Roslyn, enjoying its natural beauty, its historic structures and browsing its one of kind boutiques, taking a break to have a leisurely lunch at any one of our casual spots, or staying later and dining at one of the many excellent restaurants we have to offer. And you can always catch a movie at the Roslyn Movie Theatre.

With a variety of neighborhoods, each special in its own way, Roslyn is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. We have a great school district, a strong sense of community, a solid infrastructure, a commitment to preservation, and a policy of responsible growth.

I hope you find our website user friendly and easy to navigate. We strive to communicate clearly and effectively to our residents and visitors. Please feel free to leave any comments or questions you have about the website or the Village.

Mayor John Durkin
