Our Town

Merrick is a hamlet in the Town of Hempstead in Nassau County, New York, USA.  As of the 2010 census, the population was 22,097.  The name “Merrick” is taken from Meroke, the name (meaning peaceful) of the Algonquian tribe formerly indigenous to the area. It is served by the Merrick station on the Long Island Rail Road.

Merrick has obviously changed over the years so please feel free to send us pictures of Merrick or changes to Merrick so they can be added to our gallery.
