Central Islip Real Estate

The hamlet of Central Islip lies within the town of Islip in Suffolk County, Long Island. Neighbors include the villages of Islip and East Islip, Hauppauge, Islandia, Bohemia, Oakdale and Brentwood.

For the first half of the 20th century, the hamlet was known for the Central Islip Psychiatric Center, the state hospital which, at one point, housed over 10,000 patients. The hospital closed in 1996, and the mid-1990s saw the beginnings of a new development boom, starting with the construction of a federal courthouse complex designed by Richard Meier & Partners. The new courthouse is one of the nation's largest at 850,000 square feet; it was joined by a new county court complex on the 788 acre former hospital site. In 2000, the Citibank Park stadium was built as the home of the Long Island Ducks, a minor league baseball team yet another new addition to the re-invigorated community. Central Islip is also home to the New York Institute of Technology and Touro Law School. The downtown area recently welcomed several new commercial buildings and expects even more revitalization to in the coming years.

Home to about 35,000 people, today's Central Islip is a diverse community with an equally diverse selection of homes, from Cape Cods and colonials to ranch and high-ranch styles. There are a number of newer housing developments as well, including College Woods, Park Row, Bella Casa Estates, Islip Landing and Courthouse Commons.

Nearby Connetquot River State Park Preserve provides a wooded paradise on 3,473 acres of land and water. The beaches of Fire Island, the Great South Bay and the Atlantic Ocean are just a short drive to the south.

Central Islip is conveniently located between the Long Island Expressway at its northern border and the Heckscher State Parkway to the south; it takes about an hour and 20 minutes to reach Midtown Manhattan from the Central Islip stop on the Long Island Rail Road. The nearest airport is Long Island MacArthur Airport.
