Munsey Park is a village in Nassau County, New York, United States. The population was 2,693 at the 2010 census.

The Village of Munsey Park is in the Town of North Hempstead.



The village was founded around 1922 on North Shore land owned by wealthy publisher Frank Munsey as a commuter town taking advantage of railroad stations a few miles away in Manhasset and Roslyn. Since it was also miles away from the Plandome Road School, the Manhasset school district built a conveniently located Munsey Park Elementary School in the 1930s.

  • The village became incorporated in 1930, establishing its own municipal government and zoning ability
  • The Munsey Park Village Hall is located at 1777 Northern Blvd. Opened on December 8, 1974, the village hall was built to conform to the standards of residential homes within the village.
  • Scenes from The Good Wife were shot within the village in 2009.


  • All homes in the village conform to colonial architecture, built with only the finest construction materials "above and beyond" normal building standards


Board of Trustees

The governing body of Munsey Park is the Village Board of Trustees. The board comprises 5 elected officials, of whom two are elected as Mayor and Deputy Mayor. The Board of Trustees usually convenes on the second Wednesday of each month, 7:30pm at Village Hall.

Current Board of Trustees:

  • ALBERT T. JARONCZYK, Deputy Mayor

Building Advisory Committee

In order to maintain the original character of the village, most building permit applications are reviewed by the Building Advisory Committee. Members of the committee are appointed by the Board of Trustees. It is important to note that the committee itself can make no decisions on applications, just recommendations. This power is reserved strictly for the Board of Trustees. However, almost all recommendations made by the committee are upheld by the Board of Trustees.

Board of Appeals

The Board of Appeals is totally independent of the Board of Trustees. Each board member is appointed for a staggered five-year term, which can be renewed. The Board of Appeals primarily acts on an appeal from a disapproval of the Building Inspector, perhaps requesting a variance from the Village Code. This Board is asked to rule on difficult issues and, on occasions, does overturn a ruling of the Board of Trustees. Board of Appeals hearing can require the presence of a court stenographer and, on many such cases, attorneys will be present. The Board of Appeals meets on the third Monday of any month in which they have business to transact, beginning at 8:00 p.m.
