Bayport NY Real Estate & Homes for Sale

Bayport, NY Homes for Sale

Bayport began to thrive in the early 19th century with the arrival of new families and formation of new farms and businesses. In 1869, a railroad terminal was established and facilitated the transportation of goods. This led to the transformation of the town into a summer retreat for New York City residents, and many of the farmlands were sold and converted into summer homes.
