A beautiful neighborhood of enclaves — among them Bay Terrace, Bayside Gables, Weeks Woodlands and Bayside Hills — strung together by the vibrant shopping strip along Bell Boulevard. Each enclave could be defined as a neighborhood in itself. Bayside residents laud the ease of commuting on the Long Island Rail Road’s Port Washington line, which takes under 25 minutes to arrive in Manhattan. Bayside has several green spaces among them Fort Totten Park is 60 acres on Little Neck Bay surrounding a preserved Civil War fortress. Besides the battlements, it has an outdoor pool, soccer fields and a nature center, and around Halloween it has “haunted lantern” tours of the historic Water Battery.
