The Hamlet of Huntington lies in the large Suffolk County town of the same name. Bordered by Cold Spring Harbor to the west, Lloyd Harbor to the north and Centerport to the northeast, Huntington sits on the North Shore of Long Island just 38 miles from Manhattan.
Residents of Huntington either belong to Huntington, Cold Spring Harbor or Walt Whitman school districts, all three of which are consistently ranked among the best in the United States. As for private schools, Huntington is home to one of the largest, most prestigious Catholic schools in Nassau County—Saint Anthonys—and a college-prepatory Jewish school—The Hebrew Academy of Academic Excellence.
Huntington is graced with a beautiful Marina in nearby Lloyd Harbor where boat owners can dock for the summer and anyone can come to check out the gorgeous views of the Long Island Sound at sunset. Oheka Castle is another gem of the area; a breathtaking mansion estate now turned hotel that offers a full 18 hole golf course and is a popular Wedding venue.
Another great aspect of Huntington is the Village. Though technically not a real Village, this name now sticks when referring to the heart of the town. In Huntington Village there’s something to do for everyone, making it one of the greatest parts of buying a home nearby. Home to a large movie theater, several coffee shops, numerous bars, clubs and restaurants of all cuisine, the Village is a great nightlife destination for teenagers, young adults and parents alike. Frozen yogurt connoisseurs will be pleased with their options, and lacrosse enthusiasts (a huge sport for Cold Spring Harbor and Huntington schools) will love the Lacrosse Unlimited store downtown, one of two specialty shops of its kind. The Book Revue is a store in the village that frequently presents authors of all genres to meet and sign personal copies of their novels.
Winning buyers over with the charming Village is likely Huntington’s greatest strength. However, so much more can be said about this charming hamlet in eastern Suffolk county. Huntington has its own hospital and fire department, ensuring the safety and wellbeing of its residents.
Commuters will be pleased to know that Huntington has its own station on the Long Island Rail Road. And, depending on which part of Huntington you’re from, you may be closer to the Cold Spring Harbor stop which shaves a good 5 minutes off the commute as well. In addition, Northern Boulevard, a major roadway for the North Shore of Long Island from Queens to Calverton, Suffolk County, passes right through Huntington.
