A charming community with a vaudeville past, Malverne brings a small-town feel and family-friendly entertainments to Long Island.
The housing inventory consists of mostly single-family homes. Well-kept capes and mid-century ranches stand alongside stately Colonials and newer construction. You won’t find many chain stores in Malverne, which boasts a robust market of independent shops and boutiques. Head to neighboring commercial hubs like Rockville Center for nightlife or check out one of the many nearby warm weather hotspots like Jones Beach State Park. Gaddis Park features a playground and bike paths, while Chester A. Reese Veterans Memorial Park hosts a variety of outdoor performances during the summer. Community festivals and events, from the annual tree-lighting to summer farmers’ markets, draw in heavy foot traffic throughout the year.
