Islip Terrace NY Homes for Sale

Islip Terrace began developing in 1914 when a real estate agent from New York City built homes in the wooded area between East Islip and the former Central Islip State Hospital. Many of the employees at the psychiatric facility became the early inhabitants of the area.
