Melville is an unincorporated neighborhood and census-designated place in the Town of Huntington on Long Island, New York.

Local Area Information

Melville is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in the southwest Town of Huntington, a Suffolk County township on Long Island, New York. It is bounded by Dix Hills on the east, West Hills and South Huntington on the north, Plainview and Old Bethpage on the west, as well as East Farmingdale, Wyandanch, and Wheatley Heights on the south.

Melville may be a relatively small town but that didn’t stop it from becoming a corporate world center. Despite its small size and population, it has attracted more than its share of corporate and regional business headquarters, such as Nikon and Canon USA to name a couple of its biggest residents. It boasts the ideal corporate venue as it is located near two of the country’s busiest expressways, the Long Island Expressway and the Northern State Parkway. Both roads serve as major New York entrances, too.

There is, however, more to Melville than the company headquarters. There’s also an eclectic mix of restaurants, boutique shops, and community parks in this tight-knit community. History and trade, as well as an exciting array of shopping and dining options, make it a must-see community.

The residential areas contain some of the most magnificent single-family homes, townhouses, and other multifamily housing, some of which are in gated communities, including the condos at Northgate and the 55+ communities of The Greens at Half Hollow and The Coves at Melville. There are also rentals, new constructions, luxury homes with a pool on spacious lots, and even waterfront homes with marvelous water views of a pond. Much of the community uses the Melville, NY 11747 ZIP code, while some portions use either 11746 or 11735.

Melville is approximately 34 miles east of Manhattan, New York City, and served by the Farmingdale Station and Pinelawn Station via the Long Island Rail Road’s Ronkonkoma Branch. Traveling to or from the city by car takes about 57 minutes to an hour and a half via the Long Island Expressway.

Beaches & Parks

Arboretum Park is an active park featuring a baseball field, playground, two basketball courts, two handball courts, and four tennis courts. In a small section of the park is the Anne Frank Memorial Garden, which commemorates the life of Anne Frank with various sculptural works, quotes from her diary, and two Chestnut trees, which symbolized freedom for her while in hiding. The Arboretum Park trail weaves through the memorial garden, goes around the sports fields and courts, and circles back to the parking area.

Butterfly Park is a hilly terrain shaped by melted glaciers and stream erosion, and is often used for nature walks. It has a sandy and well-drained eastern trail, while silt and organic matter comprise the park’s western trail. Butterfly Park is located on Farmington Lane, south of the LIE and west of Bagatelle Road.

Dr. Jeffrey Wenig Memorial Park consists of rolling hills that are at a higher elevation than much of Long Island, with mostly oaks, blueberries, and pitch pines. Its winding trail begins on Roundtree Drive, meanders through ridges and valleys, and ends on Wilmington Drive. It was named in memory of Dr. Jeffrey Wenig, who was a renowned toxicologist, inventor, pharmaceutical developer, and a former Director of Environmental Protection in the Town of Huntington, which received “Beautify America” awards twice during Dr. Wenig’s tenure.

Mt. Misery Nature Preserve is the part of Suffolk County’s West Hills County Park where it is quieter and paths are less traveled, probably because the woods are steeped in legends and fantastical tales, dating back to the first Native American settlers. Intrepid adventurers, however, are rewarded with beautiful, hilly trails amidst various types of flora and fauna. Main entrance is on Sweet Hollow Road, south of the Northern State Parkway overpass.

The Schools

Melville students are served by the Half Hollow Hills Central School District, which has nine schools (five elementary, two middle, and two high schools), and South Huntington Union Free School District, which has seven schools. The Half Hollow Hills school district’s West Hollow Middle and Sunquam Elementary Schools are located in the area, while the rest of the district schools are in the neighboring hamlet of Dix Hills.
