The home of Adelphi’s main campus since 1929 - is one of Long Island’s most historic and scenic towns. Located fewer than 20 miles from Manhattan, Garden City is a tight-knit community of just over 20,000 residents. Aptly named, the village is an oasis of bucolic beauty with fine facilities - such as excellent public schools - as well as a thriving downtown with a mixture of small shops and restaurants and national retailers. Garden City provides a safe and elegant home for Adelphi’s main campus. See below for a list of amenities near our campus.
