It’s no secret that the Village of Garden City is an affluent community. There’s plenty of A-list reasons to want to live here between the top-notch school system, far-ranging history of a community that dates back nearly a century and a half and the gorgeous aesthetics that define the neighborhood’s character. So while a million-dollar sticker price will get you through the door and more, the following are homes where the current owners doubled down and decided to wind up going north of $2 million when they bought into the American Dream that is Garden City.
