LAW OFFICE OF FREDERIC R. ABRAMSON LONG ISLAND OFFICE IN PORT WASHINGTON NY
Tucked away on a peninsula along Nassau County's North Shore is a beautiful small waterfront town known as Port Washington. I have been a resident of Port Washington for over 15 years. Its a great place to raise your family. As a resident of Port Washington, I will come to your home for a free consultation if you have been injured in a car accident.
With rolling hills and a coastline in the northwest corner of Nassau County, Port Washington has many marinas, yacht clubs and golf courses. Just 17 miles from New York City, Port Washington is a quiet town with civic pride and gorgeous views of Manhasset Bay, the Manhattan skyline to the West and the Long Island Sound to the North. Main street is known for antique shops, spas, small boutiques, art galleries, book stores and a variety of other shops.
The Great Neck peninsula is across Manhasset Bay to the west; Manhasset and Plandome are to the south; Roslyn lies southeast. Besides an unincorporated area of the Town of North Hempstead, Port Washington is home to four incorporated villages: Baxter Estates, Manorhaven, Port Washington North and Sands Point, plus part of the village of Flower Hill.
Main Street's business and restaurant district runs down to Manhasset Bay from the post office on Port Washington Boulevard.
