Patchogue NY Homes for Sale

In the early 1860’s, the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) reached Patchogue and resulted in a surge of growth in its tourism industry. Other businesses followed, such as banks, manufacturers and other small establishments, and a bustling downtown commercial area developed. Like many other towns and villages on Long Island, it suffered a period of decline but efforts were exerted by the government and community for its restoration and renewal.

Local Area Information

Patchogue is an incorporated village in the Town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County, on the South Shore of Long Island, New York. Established in 1893, the village adjoins Patchogue Bay on the south, which forms a part of the Great South Bay, and is adjacent to the hamlets of Blue Point to the west, North Patchogue to the north and East Patchogue to the east. The three Patchogue communities share the 11772 ZIP code.

In the village, churches, homes and public buildings provide examples of historical design, including pre-Revolutionary, Victorian and Art Deco. The National Register of Historic Places listed three churches and hundreds of buildings, nestled among the newer homes and condominiums.

Besides single-family homes, Patchogue encompasses multifamily dwellings and co-ops, including those in Waters Edge and Fairharbor on the Water, a gated community offering waterfront homes with outstanding water views. There are also rentals, vacant lots, homes with pools and accessory apartments.

Just over 12,000 people live in the village, which shares a school system with neighboring Medford as well as other essential services. Local park system includes beach access, softball, tennis and basketball courts and swimming. Connection to the Great South Bay via Patchogue Bay is provided by a basin marina. The beach offers stunning views of sunrise over Fire Island.

The village’s cultural life centers around the Patchogue Theatre, a Vaudeville home— turned movie theatre— converted into a local landmark. Today, its grandeur of the 1920s has been restored, and it serves the village with films and plays throughout the year. Restaurants, stores and the Blue Point Brewery operate and serve permanent residents year-round.

The village is roughly 58 miles east of Manhattan in New York City and served by the Patchogue Station via the Long Island Rail Road’s Montauk Branch. Traveling to or from the city by car takes about an hour and 26 minutes to an hour and 55 minutes via the Long Island Expressway.
