Top Things to Do in Garden City, NY

Locat­ed rough­ly 18 miles from mid­town Man­hat­tan, the Vil­lage of Gar­den City is locat­ed in the heart of Long Island, NY. Found­ed in 1869 by mul­ti-mil­lion­aire Alexan­der Tur­ney Stew­art, Gar­den City has some pret­ty unique things to do and see if you ever have the plea­sure of vis­it­ing.

  • The Cathe­dral of the Incar­na­tion- con­struct­ed in 1876, this Epis­co­pal Church was estab­lished as a memo­r­i­al and mau­soleum for Gar­den City’s founder, A.T. Stew­art. No build­ing in Gar­den City can stand taller than the Cathe­dral; this icon­ic Ital­ianate piece of his­to­ry is a must-see.
  • Cra­dle of Avi­a­tion Muse­um- this aero­space muse­um was built upon land that has a rich his­to­ry in the begin­ning of avi­a­tion, hence the name. This muse­um is home to over 75 air and space­craft, fea­tur­ing every­thing from hot air bal­loons to an actu­al unused Apol­lo Lunar Mod­ule. Per­haps one of the most pop­u­lar air and space muse­ums in the Unit­ed States, this is one that should not be missed.
  • Long Island Children’s Muse­um- if you’re explor­ing Gar­den City with chil­dren, this place is sure to not dis­ap­point. Noth­ing beats a fun filled edu­ca­tion­al after­noon at one of the most pop­u­lar sites in Long Island. With numer­ous hands-on exhibits that are con­stant­ly chang­ing, your kids and you as well are sure to gain knowl­edge all while hav­ing fun.
  • The Nas­sau Coun­ty Fire­fight­ers Muse­um and Edu­ca­tion Cen­ter- con­tin­u­ing along the edu­ca­tion­al path, this muse­um is filled with the rich his­to­ry of fire­fight­ing in Nas­sau Coun­ty that includes over 10,000sq feet of space to explore and learn about antique and new fire­fight­ing equip­ment.

These are just a few of the many things there are to do and see in Gar­den City, NY but, of course, let’s not for­get the Dia­mond Vision Laser Cen­ter of Long Island, for all your eye­sight and LASIK needs. We pro­vide free con­sul­ta­tions and walk-ins are always wel­come.
