The community of Herricks is in the southern part of North Hempstead, north of Garden City Park, southeast of Manhasset Hills, and west of Williston Park. The name Herricks comes from an old road called Herricks Path. Some historians suggest this name may come from the English settler William Herrick, who came to Long Island around the year 1640 and was an early landowner in the area. If you live in Herricks, your Zip code is going to be 11040.

Herricks also has a rich history because of its schools. In the early 19th century, a one-room school began in Herricks that was one of the first schools in the area. It continued for decades until it was one of the last remaining schools of its kind in the area. After World War II, there was a housing boom that led to families heading to Nassau County, and more homes were built in Herricks. Consequently, new elementary and high schools in Herricks soon started opening.
