Mastic NY Real Estate & Homes for Sale

Mastic, NY Homes for Sale

The hamlet once known as Forge was renamed Mastic in 1893, and like many other waterfront communities in the eastern Suffolk County, it had a flourishing duck farming industry beginning in 1918 until the 1960s. The Mastic area was first developed in 1922 by brothers Arthur and Warren Smadbeck, known as the “Henry Fords of Real Estate.” The Smadbecks sold lots in Mastic Park with a subscription to the Brooklyn Citizen, and many of the first homes and shops were built from the materials that came from nearby Camp Upton.

Local Area Information

Mastic is an unincorporated neighborhood and census-designated place (CDP) on the South Shore of Long Island, New York. It is part of the Town of Brookhaven, the most populous of the ten townships in Suffolk County. The hamlet is located on a neck of land known as Mastic Peninsula and shares it with the communities of Shirley to the west and Mastic Beach to the south. Mastic is bounded by Manorville and Moriches on the north and northeast, while the waters of the Forge River run along its southeastern shores.

Single-family homes, undeveloped vacant lots and many other property types constitute Mastic’s residential areas. There are new constructions, rentals — especially along Montauk Highway — accessory apartments, homes with pools and a number of waterfront properties with great water views of Forge River, West/East Millpond or Second Neck Creek.

Montauk Highway bisects the area and is lined with many shops, restaurants, service providers and other businesses. There are also commercial areas along Mastic Road, Herkimer Street, Wood and Patchogue Avenues as well as along and near the riverfront. Much of the community uses the 11950 ZIP code, while a small northeastern segment uses 11949.

Volunteer members of the Mastic Fire Department provide fire protection services to most neighborhoods, and the Manorville Fire Department covers much of the northern region. The Suffolk County Police Department’s 7th Precinct patrols the entire area along with the other communities in the eastern Brookhaven Town.

The hamlet is about 65 miles east of Midtown Manhattan in New York City and served by the Mastic-Shirley Station via the Montauk Branch of the Long Island Rail Road. Travel time to or from the city by car is about an hour and 48 minutes to two hours and 34 minutes via the Long Island Expressway or Southern State Parkway.
