Nassau Hobby Shop
Nassau Hobby has been a Freeport landmark for 74 years, established in 1946 by Ralph Hirschberg as a coin and chemical store. It has now grown into Long Island’s largest hobby shop, although we no longer sell coins or chemicals. Since times have changed, we have evolved and moved on to selling trains including Lionel, Bachmann, MTH and LGB brands; while also recently expanding to toys including select items from Gundam, Warhammer, Melissa and Doug, Lego, Fisher Price and Mattel. Our store also encompasses Long Islands only Traxxas Zone with a rock crawler course! Charles Hirschberg, Past President of Freeport Chamber of Commerce, has run the store for over 40 years, now under third generation ownership the store is run by Chris Hirschberg. Be sure to come in and check out all of our new additions and if you don’t have a hobby, now is a great time to start one!!
Freeport is a village in the town of Hempstead, Nassau County, New York, US, on the South Shore of Long Island. The population was 43,713 at the 2010 census.
A settlement since the 1640s, it was once an oystering community and later a resort popular with the New York City theater community. It is now primarily a bedroom suburb but retains a modest commercial waterfront and some light industry. It is serviced by the Freeport station on the Long Island Rail Road.
