East Northport Real Estate

The Suffolk County hamlet of East Northport is in the town of Huntington, Long Island. Neighboring hamlets and villages include Northport, Greenlawn, Fort Salonga, Kings Park, Commack and Elwood.

Once comprised of two separate sections known as Larkfield and Clay Pitts, the region prospered in the late 18th century as a thriving farming community by supplying produce to markets in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Though the hamlet is mostly south of Northport, when the Long Island Railroad arrived in the late 1860s, the Northport station was referred to as just to the east of Northport, as it was to the east of the old railway switching station.

Like many surrounding towns, East Northport experienced a growth boom after World War II when rural housing was transformed into modern suburbs. Today East Northport is the largest in land area community in the town of Huntington and, with 20,217 residents, has its third largest population. East Northport continues to grow as a residential community, offering mid-century and older single-family homes many on large lots and convenient businesses, services and parks. Residents many of whom grew up here and have either stayed or returned work hard to prevent the crowding and congestion that plague some suburban areas. The community also boasts several well-regarded public and private schools.

East Northport might be called the neighborly suburban counterpart to nearby Northport's friendly village with its popular Main Street business district. Also in neighboring Northport are the 18-hole Crab Meadow Golf Course, Crab Meadow Beach and Sunken Meadow State Park. The East Northport Chamber of Commerce sponsors an annual festival featuring sidewalk sales, exhibits, craft vendors, food, a petting zoo, live entertainment and more. Eight local parks offer ball fields, picnic areas, jogging trails and plenty of open space.

The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) commuter rail stops at the Northport and Greenlawn stations on the Port Jefferson line. The nearest airport is Long Island Macarthur Airport in Islip, NY.
