Local Area Information

Huntington is a medium-sized, densely populated community and census-designated place (CDP) in Suffolk County’s Town of Huntington on the renowned North Shore of Long Island, New York. Downtown Huntington, the central business district along Route 25A (Main Street) and New York Avenue, is often locally referred to as Huntington Village, but, though it is old and well-developed, it is unincorporated and does not have a village form of government.

Single-family homes primarily constitute the residential districts in the Huntington, NY 11743 ZIP code, and plenty of waterfront homes with beach access and great water views line the coast along Huntington Harbor and Northport Bay. The robust housing inventory offers rentals, luxury homes with a pool on sprawling lots, some new constructions, co-ops, condos, and other multifamily dwellings. There are also accessory apartments, potential mother-daughter, and homes near horse properties and facilities.

Huntington is known for its small-town feel, and has a good reputation among young families seeking a welcoming community with warmth, charm, lots of local arts and cultural activities, and a lively nightlife. Over time, it has become a bustling suburban center and was referred to as “Little Apple,” a microcosm of Manhattan with its top-notch restaurants, galleries, shops, specialty stores, and entertainment venues.

Such venues include The Paramount, which once ranked the 5th busiest club in the world, and the prestigious historic Oheka Castle, which was once voted the Number 1 Most Unforgettable Wedding Venue. The hamlet holds several festivals and other time-honored traditions, many of which almost always take place at Heckscher Park, while the famous Lighthouse Musicfest is held in the middle of the water at the top of the Huntington Harbor Lighthouse.

The neighborhood is approximately 34 miles northeast of Manhattan, and served by the Huntington Station via the Port Jefferson Branch of the Long Island Rail Road. Driving to or from New York City takes about an hour and 20 minutes to two hours and seven minutes via the Long Island Expressway.

Beaches & Parks

Coindre Hall is a French style Gold Coast mansion on the National Register of Historic Places that overlooks open fields and Huntington Harbor. It has a trail that offers various habitats for observation, and weaves through the fields, a small wooded area and marshy wetlands to a boathouse, continues along the harbor and over to the Gold Star Battalion Beach, and to the mansion. Coindre Hall features a grand ballroom and piazza, and holds many Town of Huntington programs, such as a summer marine nature camp for children.

Fleets Cove Beach has a grassy area with shade trees that make it a perfect spot for picnics, and a playground with a tire swing. The sand is a bit rocky but there are many types of activities to be enjoyed, such as coasting on boogie boards, kayaking, and fishing, which is allowed beyond the swimming area. It is on Fleets Cove Road, overlooking Northport Bay.

The Froehlich Farm Nature Preserve features a loop trail that winds through a dense tangle of vegetation, and has a butterfly garden, apiary, grove of fruit trees and organic community gardens, the fruits and vegetables produced from which are all donated to those in need. The main entrance is on West Rogues Path, west of Oakwood Road, with parking available on a vast grass field. Leashed dogs are allowed at this preserve.

Heckscher Park, considered by many as the “Central Park” of Huntington, has beautiful gardens, play areas, a 9-11 Memorial, and a pond that teems with varied plants and wildlife. Its amenities include bocce courts, a jogging path loop, model sail boating, playground, lighted playing field, sculpture garden, four lighted tennis courts, and restrooms. Located on Madison Street, Prime Avenue and Route 25A, it serves as a venue for many of Huntington’s community events. The park is also home to the Heckscher Museum of Art and the Chapin Rainbow Stage.
