Halesite is an unincorporated community in the Town of Huntington in Suffolk County, New York, located along the eastern and southern banks of Huntington Harbor on Long Island’s North Shore. It is bounded by the hamlet of Huntington on three sides, the village of Huntington Bay on the north, and the waters of Huntington Harbor on the northwest.

With a land area of 0.889 square miles, Halesite was the smallest census-designated place (CDP) in Huntington Town in the 2020 U.S. Census, and the second smallest CDP in all of Suffolk County, next to New Suffolk in the Town of Southold.

To the south of this historical enclave are several modern marinas and a small commercial district, while the rest are residential zones that consist of predominantly single-family homes.

Huntington Hospital is nearby, and a United States Postal Service branch serves the area, which uses the same zip code of NY 11743 as the hamlet of Huntington.

Most of the Halesite, NY 11743 ZIP code is protected by the Halesite Fire Department, formally established in 1901. A somewhat smaller southwestern section is served by the Huntington Fire Department. The hamlet is patrolled by the Suffolk County Police Department’s 2nd Precinct.
