The “villages” of Brookhaven are considered by some to be the most diverse and interesting residential spots among the island’s suburbs and subdivisions. This is partly due to the University at Stony Brook (part of the State University of New York system). The oft-mentioned “Three Village” area (actually two villages and two hamlets) includes Old Field, Poquott, Setauket-East Setauket and Stony Brook.
On the shores of Long Island Sound, Stony Brook is a quaint, friendly village with the added sophistication of shops, local cafes and boutiques as well as the Marine Sciences Research Center, which is world-renowned.
Accessible by the Long Island Railroad, Port Jefferson is a scenic waterfront village nestled at the foot of seven tree-covered hills, home to dozens of quirky shops, historic homes, outstanding restaurants and eclectic art galleries. Nearby Upton is home to the Brookhaven National Laboratory, with ongoing research programs in nuclear and high-energy physics, neurosciences, medical imaging and more. Brookhaven is also great for golfers, with 12 public and five private courses.
While commonly referred to as the gateway to Fire Island, Brookhaven’s South Shore contains plenty of attractions of its own. The 2,550-acre Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge in Shirley is home to a vast range of birds and other wildlife. The sleepy, historic villages of Bellport and Eastport are also known for shopping and antiquing as well as a quiet small-town lifestyle.
