Local Area Information

South Farmingdale is an unincorporated area and census-designated place (CDP) in the southeastern portion of the Town of Oyster Bay, along the western side of the Nassau-Suffolk County line on Long Island, New York. The landlocked hamlet shares borders with Farmingdale Village to the north, Plainedge to the northwest, North Massapequa to the southwest, as well as Massapequa Park Village and East Massapequa to the south. Suffolk County’s East Farmingdale and North Amityville lie to the northeast and southeast, respectively.

Named for its geographic southerly direction from Farmingdale Village, South Farmingdale is anchored by and often regarded as part of the village, with which it shares several community resources, such as the post office, school district, library district, and the 11735 ZIP code. The triangular area between West, North, and East Drives uses mainly the 11758 ZIP code, and shares a fire district with North Massapequa. The rest is served by the South Farmingdale Fire Department.

Residential districts in the South Farmingdale, NY 11735 and 11758 ZIP codes comprise mostly single-family homes, though there are also plenty of two- and three-family houses and a few multifamily properties. These include a small number of rental apartments and the Farmingdale Villas, a charming, park-like 55+ community in the outskirts of the hamlet. For gated neighborhoods, though, the best course would be up toward the North Shore communities, where many of the luxury homes on big lots and the waterfront properties lie.

South Farmingdale is roughly 32 miles east of Manhattan, New York City, and served by the Farmingdale Station via the Long Island Rail Road’s Ronkonkoma Branch on the north, and Massapequa Park Station via the Babylon Branch on the south. Traveling to or from the city by car takes about an hour and 16 minutes to an hour and 21 minutes via the Long Island Expressway or Southern State Parkway.
