Syosset Mobile/Manufactured Home Park is home to 70+ families.
Our community has quietly co-existed within Syosset since at least
1926 which makes it 80 years old and many Syosset and Nassau County
residents were unaware of our existence.
Our community atmosphere brings to mind days of old where neighbors
knew each other, children played outside together, parents didn’t
have to escort their children to a neighbors house for fear of what
might happen on the way there and crime was something that happened
in someone else’s community.
A Brief History
The site, formerly Oaks Mobile Estates Park, now known as Syosset
Mobile Home Park began as a campground back in 1938/1939 and has
always been a “mobile community”. It slowly developed
into a Manufactured home park as Manufactured homes became affordable
alternatives to traditional stick built homes. The properly was
owned by the Horowitz family and was passed down from Harry and
Muriel Horowitz to their son Sanford, The park was managed under
Hormi Holding Company (est. 1960). Sanford Horowitz (of Hormi Holding)
sold the park to STP Assoc., LLC. (est. 7/12/06) on 4/2/07 and the
park residents were notified of the sale on 4/9/07.
Sadly, our community lost its last battle in February 2016 with
the remainder of us moving on to better opportunities. From last
summer onwards Newsday filmed a short documentary about the part
the was just released, entitled "The last trailer park".
