The village was founded in the 1920s on North Shore land previously owned by wealthy publisher Frank Munsey as a commuter town taking advantage of railroad stations a few miles away in Manhasset and Roslyn. The land was bequeathed by Munsey to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1925, which developed the planned community under the leadership of Museum President Robert DeForest. It featured Colonial-style houses and streets named after American artists, and its first model home opened in 1928. Since the village was 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 Shepherd were shot within the village in 2005.
  • Scenes from The Good Wife were shot within the village in 2009.
