Local Area Information

Lindenhurst is an incorporated village in the Town of Babylon, Suffolk County, on the South Shore of Long Island, New York. Its nearest neighbors include Copiague to the west, North Lindenhurst to the north, and West Babylon to the east. The Great South Bay lies to the south and offers not only magnificent water views but also a host of recreational activities.

In the 1860s, city-dwellers were brought into the region by train and were sold land on which to build homes. Formally dedicated in 1870 as the “City of Breslau,” the area experienced rapid industry development within the next few years. Arising from a legal dispute between the founders, the community was renamed “Lindenhurst” in 1891 after the Linden tree seeds planted along the streets by the German settlers. It was incorporated as a village in 1923.

Lindenhurst, or “Lindy,” contains largely residential areas with single-family homes and multifamily dwellings. Many of the homes are waterfront properties with docks and may possibly be new constructions, potential mother-daughter, or luxury homes with pools and spacious lots. They may include accessory apartments or be located in gated communities, such as Gail Grace Manor North, the newest addition to the Gail Grace Manor and Gail Grace Manor East developments. All three are also 55+ communities, as are the rentals at Flame Tree.

The village uses the Lindenhurst, NY 11757 ZIP code. In the 2020 US Census, it had a land area of 3.76 square miles, making it the 7th largest among the 32 villages in Suffolk County. Its population count of 27,148 made it the most populous among all the villages in Suffolk County, the fourth among the 96 villages on Long Island, and the seventh among the 534 villages in New York State.

The village is about 35 miles southeast of Manhattan in New York City and served by the Lindenhurst Station via the Babylon Branch of the Long Island Rail Road.

Beaches & Parks

The Charles J. Cowan Marina contains a good number of boat docks and parking spaces, as well as a fishing and crabbing pier. Licenses for fishing are obtained from the Town of Babylon and on the DEC website. Crabbing also requires a permit, which can be acquired at the Lindenhurst Village Hall on South Wellwood Avenue. Docking privileges at the marina are granted to residents who have luck on their side, as dock spaces are applied for through a lottery held by the village.

The Irmisch Historical Park features the first railroad museum on Long Island, and is home to the Old Village Hall Museum and the original 1901 Restored Depot and Freight House. Among the features is the old ticket agent’s office and numerous relics from the bygone era, such as an oak telephone and a black cast-iron stove, the only source of heat at the time. Community group tours for the 1901 Restored Depot and Freight House are available, and admission is free of charge.

The Lindenhurst Village Park has a moderately-sized pond named Feller’s Pond, athletic fields and facilities, a playground and paved footpaths. Feller’s Pond is inhabited by different duck and waterfowl species, which park visitors may not feed, but may be observed as closely as the bird will allow or from any of the available benches overlooking the pond. The park’s sports amenities include a basketball court, tennis court and softball fields.
