The Incorporated Village of Roslyn Harbor lies in both the Town of Oyster Bay and the Town of North Hempstead.

HistoryEdit

Roslyn Harbor incorporated as a village in 1931.[3]

The "Roslyn" part of Roslyn Harbor's name is shared with Roslyn, Roslyn Estates, and Roslyn Heights, and ultimately can be traced back to when the name "Roslyn" was chosen for that village, which was chosen because the geography in Roslyn reminded officials of the geography of Roslin, Scotland.[3]

GeographyEdit

According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 1.2 square miles (3.1 km2), all land.

Roslyn Harbor is located within the Hempstead Harbor Watershed, and is also located within the larger Long Island Sound/Atlantic Ocean Watershed.[4][5][6][7]

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the United States Geological Survey, the highest point in Roslyn Harbor is located just southwest of the intersection of Dogwood Avenue and Spruce Street, at 234 feet (71 m), and the lowest point is Hempstead Harbor, which is at sea level.[6][8]
