East Farmingdale is a community in the Town of Babylon, Suffolk County, on Long Island, New York. Its residential neighborhoods are set amidst large industrial complexes and vast areas zoned for commercial and transportation industries, though there are also beautiful parks, amusement sites and other points of interest that dot the landscape.

Local Area Information

East Farmingdale is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in the northwest corner of the Town of Babylon, Suffolk County, on Long Island, New York, along the Nassau-Suffolk County line. Its closest neighbors include Wyandanch and West Babylon to the east, North Lindenhurst and North Amityville to the south, and Melville to the north. Three communities in Nassau County’s Town of Oyster Bay lie to the west: Old Bethpage, the village of Farmingdale, and South Farmingdale.

During its early years, East Farmingdale comprised mostly grasslands with farms extending throughout the region. In the late 1920s, the Fairchild Engine and Airplane Manufacturing Company’s flying field was developed and eventually became Republic Airport. By the mid-1900s, the once crop-producing fields had been adapted for use in the manufacturing industry.

East Farmingdale is usually associated with Farmingdale as the former uses the latter’s mailing address and 11735 ZIP code and is also served by the Farmingdale Post Office. East Farmingdale is home to many Long Island companies, and about a third of its land area is composed of the Republic Airport, a regional aviation reliever, and Saint Charles Cemetery. Also in the area is the American Airpower Museum, where some of Republic Airport’s historic aircrafts, artifacts, and facilities are being maintained and displayed.

Only a small area of East Farmingdale consists of residential districts with single-family homes, a number of which include pools. Most of the neighborhoods are protected by the East Farmingdale Volunteer Fire Company. The central airport area is served by the Republic Airport Fire Rescue, and a small mid-southern portion is served by the North Amityville Fire Department.

East Farmingdale is approximately 35 miles east of Manhattan in New York City and served by the Farmingdale Station and Pinelawn Station via the Ronkonkoma Branch of the Long Island Rail Road. Driving to or from the city takes about an hour and three minutes to an hour and 20 minutes via the Northern State Parkway, Long Island Expressway or Southern State Parkway.

Beaches & Parks

One of the highlights in East Farmingdale is Adventureland, an amusement park for the whole family with more than 30 enjoyable rides, attractions, and a large assortment of offerings for everyone and anyone. They include family rides, kiddie rides, thrill rides, water rides, arcade with a restaurant, drive-in concerts, outdoor games, and the park also plays host to birthday parties, group outings and corporate functions. Adventureland has been Long Island’s Amusement Park since 1962 and continues to bring fun and excitement to everyone in the family.

Michel Park is home to a playground with lots of climbing toys, including a geo dome climber and rope climber, as well as three large slides and two swings, all set on rubberized ground. The rest of the park is an open field with a paved loop path along the perimeter, where the parents can run or jog while keeping an eye on the children playing. There are also tables and benches under a pergola, as well as restrooms near the parking area.

The Schools

Most of the community is zoned for the Farmingdale Union Free School District, which has six public schools. Elementary students in the district go to Saltzman East Memorial Elementary School, East Farmingdale’s only public school. The students then eventually go to Weldon E. Howitt Middle School, which feeds into Farmingdale High School. 

Approximately a third of the region, the section north of the LIRR Babylon railroad tracks, is serviced by Half Hollow Hills Central School District, which has nine public schools. District elementary students east of Broadhollow Road attend Paumanok Elementary School, while those west of the road attend Sunquam Elementary School. They all then go to West Hollow Middle School, and Half Hollow Hills High School East next.
