Welcome to Elmont - a place where new opportunities are born. A vibrant business community with limitless possibilities. A beautiful hamlet to live, work and play.

The Elmont Chamber of Commerce website provides valuable information to our members and visitors alike. Here you will find listings of our members and contact information for our elected officials as well as sights to see in our community. We invite you to take advantage of all that we have to offer whether you are looking to find a local business, advertise your business or grow your business. We are here to help.

I am honored to have been elected as President of the Elmont Chamber of Commerce. This term of office is a team effort on behalf of our Board of Directors to complete the projects begun by our esteemed colleague, Paul Sapienza. He is greatly missed by all who lived, worked and loved him among the many organizations and business community of which he was a part.

Even through the pandemic, we continue to meet monthly. A Networking Committee has been set up to foster trade among the membership and spur business in our community. We continue to share ideas. Our Social Media Committee has hired a consultant to increase our presence on the internet in addition to this website. I urge all members to “like” and “share” our Facebook and Instagram pages with your friends. I also encourage you to participate in our “Welcome” packages delivered to all new homeowners which include coupons, fliers, or an ad specialty product to promote your business. We welcome a new season with the New York Racing Association and look forward to the completion of the USB Islander’s Arena. Beautification and Economic Development are always on our list!

Please continue to support the local businesses and organizations that help make Elmont a great place to shop, dine and live.

Please browse through our membership list and familiarize yourself with our members. I anticipate collaborating with our elected officials and continue to be a resource for our membership.

Julie Marchesella, President
“Before you click and buy … give “Shop Local” a try!”

published Facts about Elmont in About 2012-07-13 15:18:00 -0400

In 1650, Christopher and Thomas Foster purchased a large plot of land controlled by Dutch settlers with the intention of raising cattle and sheep. They named this place “Foster’s Meadow” — a name which would remain for the next 200 years of the village’s history. Control of the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam shifted to England in 1664, marking the first gradual cultural shift in Foster’s Meadow with the establishment of a community of predominantly English, Protestant farmers and their families. In 1683, Long Island was divided into three counties, Kings, Queens and Suffolk Counties; under this new structure, Foster’s Meadow was part of Queens County. The current boundaries of Elmont were decided upon in 1898; at this point, Nassau County was erected, leading to conflict over land and monies owed as a result of Elmont’s boundary shift from Queens. It was during the mid-19th century that Foster’s Meadow experienced its second cultural shift, with the influx of farmers from Brooklyn and Middle Village to the west. These groups were largely of German descent and practiced Catholicism. Indeed the Catholic population in Foster’s Meadow grew to the extent that St. Boniface Church was built in 1852, providing a focal point for the gradual development of a Catholic population base.

The community underwent its next political reshuffling in 1882, being subdivided into districts with unique names and boundaries (including Alden Manor and Locustwood); it was at this time that Foster’s Meadow was renamed Elmont. Arguably the most significant milestone in the development of modern-day Elmont was the building of the Belmont Racetrack in 1905. In this year, 620 acres (2.5 km2) were purchased on the edge of the region and by 1915, the Racetrack was opened to the public, attracting both visitors and migrant workers to the area. Housing developments and businesses grew in the area surrounding the racetrack to meet the needs of these workers; this process of development to meet the workers’ needs continued in successive waves, ultimately representing a shift in Elmont from rural farmland to suburbia.

With the opening of Belmont Racetrack in 1905, Elmont reached a turning point in its history. The farms were sold and subdivided for houses, most of them owned by people who worked at Belmont Racetrack. Many businesses were formed on Hempstead Turnpike to support the blooming suburban location. The first air race in the United States was held at Belmont Racetrack, including a race from Elmont to the Statue of Liberty and back.

The first intercity airmail service between New York and Washington, D.C. in 1918 used Belmont Park in Elmont as the terminal for New York.

Post-World War II saw widespread development of attractive suburban tract homes. Many of these homes were constructed with a brick-veneer ground story over basement in variations of the cape style to the south and east of Hempstead Turnpike, while older, smaller shingled homes cluster near the racetrack.

Today Elmont is home to 33,198 people as of the 2010 census. Some of Elmont's notable residents included, Vinny TestaverdeNFL quarterback and Heisman Award winner, Donna Orender (née Geils), Women's Pro Basketball League All-Star & current WNBA president, Nelson DeMille, Author, and Comedian Andy Kaufman is buried in Beth David Cemetery.

published Elmont Vision Plan in Resources 2012-07-13 12:41:45 -0400

In 2006, the Elmont community expressed a strong desire to improve, and enhance the suburban condition and quality of life.  Nassau County, the Town of Hempstead and the Elmont community came together with the help of Sustainable Long Island and Saccardi & Schiff to carry out a community planning process designed to build consensus through the creation and implementation of a plan that would serve as a roadmap for future development along Hempstead Turnpike. The goal of the Elmont Vision Plan was to create a unique look for Elmont by developing the community around Belmont Park, foster economic development, facilitate community revitalization, and create a range of housing options.
