Selden Real Estate

The hamlet of Selden, NY is in the town of Brookhaven in Suffolk County, Long Island. Selden is bordered by Centereach to the west, Terryville to the north, Coram to the east, and Farmingville to the south.

The area was mostly rural until the middle of the 20th century. When the hamlet's main thoroughfare was paved in 1928, growth began to accelerate. With the rise in suburban living in the 1950s, Selden became a retreat for New York City residents as well as a residential area. By the early 1970s Selden had become a primarily suburban community.

Selden is a down-to-earth, unassuming community and a great place to put down roots. Homes are more affordable here than in more affluent areas nearby, and residents are known to be helpful and loyal neighbors.

A number of shopping centers can be found along Middle Country Road (New York State Route 25). In 1992, a new shopping center, Independence Plaza, opened at the northwest corner of Middle Country and Boyle Roads. Plans are in the works to develop a town center in and around Independence Plaza as well as improving sidewalks, bike paths and bike lanes. Larger centers of commerce and culture like Port Jefferson's historic village, the Smith Haven mall and Tanger Outlet Center are just a short drive away.

The Middle Country Central School District (MCCSD) is composed of the villages and hamlets of Centereach, Selden, some parts of Lake Grove, Coram, Lake Ronkonkoma, Port Jefferson Station, and Farmingville. The Middle County Public Library located in Selden provides a great learning environment for children and serves the community further by providing continuing education initiatives for adults.

The nearest Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) stations are at Port Jefferson and Medford. The nearest Amtrak station is 21 miles away in Bridgeport, CT and a ferry travels across Long Island Sound to Port Jefferson. Selden is also served by two nearby airports, Long Island Macarthur Airport in Islip, NY and Tweed New Haven Regional Airport in New Haven, CT.
