NICE Hot Spots

Join us as we discover what makes living in 
Nassau so special.


Nassau County is a great place to live. Part of what makes it so special are all of the home grown businesses that add to the flavor of life on Long Island. NICE is highlighting unique, independent businesses through-out Nassau County, that offer great places to eat, shop and play. These locally owned establishments, easily accessible with NICE, are NICE Hot Spots.

So be sure and look for the special bus stops and window signs that will indicate that you've arrived at your NICE Hot Spot. You can learn more about these Hot Spots by scanning the QR code featured on this signage. Also, don't forget to check out our Facebook page for weekly Hot Spot additions.


Do you know a great local business?

Let us know about places you think should be listed as Hot Spots. Just email us by clicking hereor like us on Facebook @ TheNiceBus. Each Hot Spot needs to be locally owned and operated, be unique to the neighborhood, and be within sight of a NICE bus stop. We'll work with the shop to get their story and share it with all our friends.
