Neighborhoods

Located along the northern shore of Long Island at the western edge of Suffolk County, the Town of Huntington, NY has a long and distinguished history. From the "First Purchase" of lands in Huntington from the Matinecock tribe in 1653 to Huntington's early development as a maritime and farming community, establishment of rail service in the 19th century and highway access in the 20th century, and the post-World War II population boom, that history has been marked by continuing change. Over the last several decades Huntington has moved from an era of rapid growth with ample reserves of undeveloped land to become a largely built out suburban community for which preservation and enhancement of existing character have replaced growth as the primary planning focus.
