We are a village of almost 1,300 households, fronting on Manhasset Bay; with two shopping centers, many restaurants, and a desire to help all merchants who want to be a part of our community. The Village is experiencing an influx of young families due to the affordability of housing, our excellent school district and a convenient commute to New York City.

The Building Department is available Monday through Thursday from 9 AM to 3 PM.  Our telephone number and web address are listed below; and the Mayor will gladly respond to your email at: mayor@portwashingtonnorth.org.  Because we are a small village, permit applications are processed quickly and questions are welcome via phone or email at: building@portwashingtnnorth.org.

Village Mission

The Village of Port Washington North was incorporated in 1932. However, the Village, part of the Cow Neck peninsula, dates back to the mid-1600′s and is one of the early settlements on Long Island. The creation of the Village of Port Washington North and its land use relationship to the peninsula is directly related to its natural resources.

Examples of this include the grist mills, which were built where there was water to power them and sand mining which occurred where there was sand and a means to transport it away. The process of land use evolving from natural resources must be reflected upon. In the process, history and the progression of land uses must be examined along with the current conditions in order to plan for the future. Simply put, it is necessary to know who we were, so we can decide what we want to become.
