Manhasset is a small utopia located on the prestigious North Shore of Long Island. The town is best known for its country-club lifestyle, gorgeous scenery, and famous celebrities. The privileged Manhasset students are mostly Caucasian, old money, and very preppy sporting Patagonia fleeces, Nantucket reds, and pastel polos while vacationing in the Hamptons. Manhasset HS students are born with lacrosse sticks in their hands and have a work-hard, party-harder mentality. Despite the heavy drinking and drug-use, they often gain acceptances to Ivy-caliber schools. Other popular choices include Boston College, Vanderbilt, and Loyola-Maryland. The rampant house parties would make most college campuses jealous with their multiple kegs and numerous Beirut tables. Jam bands like Phish, Grateful Dead, and String Cheese often blast from somebody’s Range Rover, but if they crash it they will always get a BMW back in return. Chances are if you visited Manhasset your time here was a drunken blur, but the preppy belligerence and debauchery is a tradition.
Manhasset is a lifestyle.

A wonderful family oriented town. Everyone has money or comes from money and drives only the finest vehicles. Most popular cars include benz's, BMW's, Lexus's. In addition you need an SUV - GMC YUKON to make traveling to one of your two/three houses. Summer house in Hamptons and winter house in Wyndom, and for the really rich one in Florida. Predominatly a preppy town. High schools schools spent time from house to house drinking and college student when returing from there $40,000 institution hed to the infamous manhasset bars.
Manhasset's the place to be.

An amazing congregation of extremely Classic kids that love to get really drunk and high and run around town breaking things and befriending dealers from the Hill. They are also known to be dope at Lax.
A bunch of Manhasset kids were running down the street lastnight and one of them threw a rock through the back window of the car.

A town in Long Island in Nassau County, New York.

Most of the preppy and everyone is rich. It is home to the Miracle Mile and Northern Blvd. (Where it's a miracle if a business stays open for more than a month). Everything in this town is so old and historic there is literally nothing newer than 1850 in this town.
Manhasset is very old.
