Mastic Beach NY Homes for Sale

As developers Warren and Arthur Smadbeck had done in Mastic Park, subdivided lots were sold along with a subscription to the Brooklyn Citizen, and by 1926, the first three sections of the new community named Mastic Beach were developed, with the Knapp Estate dividing them along the middle. In 1930, the post office was established and a small commercial district developed in the eastern area of the community. In 1938, the Knapp Estate was sold to the Smadbecks, allowing all sections in Mastic Beach to finally be connected and developed.

Local Area Information

Mastic Beach is an unincorporated neighborhood and census-designated place (CDP) on the South Shore of Long Island, New York. As of 2018, the former village, which incorporated in 2010, is again under the governance of the Town of Brookhaven in Suffolk County. It forms the tri-hamlet area with Shirley to the northwest and Mastic to the northeast. These three communities are located on a neck of land referred to as Mastic Peninsula on Moriches Bay, across which lies the Smith Point County Park on Fire Island.

Between the Mastic Beach and Mastic areas is a 1700s American Indian community called the Poospatuck Indian Reservation. Across Poospatuck Creek, just south of the Indian reservation, is the historic district of Old Mastic, where the homes of the private Old Dana Estates are located.

Besides some remaining vacant lots, residential districts consist of single-family homes, many of which are waterfront properties with impressive water views of Narrow Bay or Forge River. The homes may also be rentals, new constructions, potential mother-daughter, 55+ communities or possibly have pools. The hamlet uses the Mastic Beach, NY 11951 ZIP code.

The shops, restaurants and other businesses are clustered along Mastic Road, especially in and around the triangle it forms with Commack and Neighborhood Roads. There are also a few establishments in and near the original eastern commercial district at the corner of Whittier and Neighborhood Roads as well as along Mastic Beach Road and the waterfront areas.

Most neighborhoods, generally the areas south of Wavecrest Drive, are provided with fire protection services by volunteers of the Mastic Beach Fire Department and emergency medical services by the Mastic Beach Ambulance Company. The Mastic Fire Department and the Mastic Volunteer Ambulance Company cover its northern areas.

Mastic Beach is approximately 67 miles east of Midtown Manhattan, New York City, and served by the Mastic-Shirley Station via the Long Island Rail Road’s Montauk Branch. Driving to or from the city takes about two hours and 12 minutes to two hours and 53 minutes via the Long Island Expressway or Sunrise Highway.
