Renaissance Property Associates welcomes you to the historic seaside Hamlet of Oyster Bay…the home of Theodore Roosevelt, Billy Joel’s Motorcycle Shop, Olympic sailing training and our own micro-brewery. We hope you will enjoy discovering all that this Hamlet has to offer. From waterfront activities, restaurants and shops, to historic places and outdoor activities – Oyster Bay has something for everyone.
Restaurants and a Micro Brewery
There’s a buzz about the “renaissance” of eating establishments in Oyster Bay. You’ll find some excellent restaurants including the new 2 Spring, Nikkei, Autentico, Wild Honey, Canterbury, Sweet Tomato, Taco Bay and IT BAGEL & PIZZA. There is Southdown Coffee for a jolt of caffeine, plenty of pizzerias, delicatessens and other fast food alternatives….and don’t miss the Oyster Bay Brewing Company micro-brewery.
Shops and Pets
On Audrey Avenue, you’ll find Chrison & Bellina, Manhattan style boutiques with unique accessories and home decor including Sanctuary Home & Patio. On South Street, Veterinary Care Group can take care of your pets while For Pets Only caters to your pets grooming needs…and then there’s Two by Four for overnight care. And our 100 year old hardware store, Nobman’s, has what you need to tinker around your home.
Art & Family Entertainment
Pick up great art work at Art on Audrey and see the varied antiques and curiosities at The Attic Door and Chalikians. There is also plenty of family friendly activities and entertainment with places such as Not Just Art, Gone Dancing and What’s Cooking.
Beautiful new walkways and incredible views from Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park, with ball fields, a beach and marina. If you feel adventurous, the Waterfront Center can teach you how to sail…or rent a sailboat, kayak, row boat or stand up paddleboard. There are yacht clubs, rowing clubs, the Oyster Bay Marine Center & Cooper Bluff, public and private golf courses and plenty of other activities. You also may bump into one of the Olympic sailors training at the Oakcliff Sailing Center.
Historical and Cultural
If you’re looking for historical perspective, Oyster Bay has plenty to offer in less than six square miles – from the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site (home of Theodore Roosevelt) and Audubon Sanctuary to the east, and the lush gardens of Planting Fields State Historic Park to the west. In the heart of the Hamlet, you’ll find historic buildings such as Raynham Hall ~ the center of the Long Island spy ring during the revolutionary war and home of the first recorded American Valentine. We also have our own Oyster Bay Railroad museum including the station used by Theodore Roosevelt and a yard with some interesting old train cars.
Music, Car Shows & Events
Summertime Tuesday Cruise Nights, Friday night “Dancing on the Street” and the annual Oyster Festival in October, the largest waterfront festival on the east coast, are just some of the many events that take place throughout the year.
And while your in town, there are plenty of helpful businesses and services from self care including an orthodontist, designer and barber to financial institutions like Nassau Financial Federal Credit Union, real estate & accounting services and more!
