Port-Washington sits on Manhasset Bay in Nassau County on Long Island. This mid-size city has a rich history and was named after President George Washington after he visited the nearby town of Roslyn in 1790. It was once a sand-mining center and then a thriving oyster farming community. After the arrival of the railroad in 1898, Port Washington attracted more visitors to its' beautiful beaches and soon became more of a resort area. Today the town is known for its' charm and country appeal, and has evolved into a "melting pot" community. It was used as the filming location for the 2000 movie, "Meet the Parents." Port Washington has numerous shops and accommodations, and a wide variety of restaurants, from seafood to Japanese and Thai. Other attractions in town include Bar Beach Park, Dodge House, the Polish American Museum and the Sands-Willets House Museum. Outdoor recreation in the area includes swimming, fishing, boating, hiking and biking. Port Washington is just minutes to the other Long Island cities of Queens and the Bronx, and is less than 10 miles to Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, and world class shopping and dining.

Port Washington Weather & Climate

Manhattan and the surrounding area have four seasons of changeable weather. Summers are often hot and muggy and last until September. Temperatures usually soar to near 100 degrees F. for a week to ten days in mid-July to mid-August. Another uncomfortable time to visit New York City is during January and February when temps are often in the 20s and the concrete canyons of the city can turn into wind tunnels. Otherwise, the rest of the year the weather is comfortable, with March usually being the rainiest month. May offers great weather - just warm enough for walking around but cool enough to remain comfortable. Autumn has more sunshine than spring, although both are clear and bright. New York City is magical at Christmas time and the changing leaves of fall makes it a beautiful time to visit the area.
