St. James Real Estate

St. James is a historical village with roots that predate the bedroom community sprawl of 20th century Long Island. The St. James General Store on Moriches Road is the oldest general store in America, and the National Register of Historic Places lists a number of St. James buildings as a centrally located district. St. James is named for its centrally located and historic church, and hosts the second-oldest station house on the Long Island Rail Road.

Just over 15,000 people live in this subdivision of Smithtown. An unincorporated community, it has its own fire department, and shares police and public schools with other Smithtown neighborhoods. St. James was a contender in Moneymagazine's top 100 places to live listing for 2007.

Veterans' Memorial Park is located in St. James. Nessequogue and Smithtown Landing Golf Courses are less than 10 minutes to the northwest. Shopping, dining and entertainment can be found downtown, with New York City's unrivaled offerings convenient via the Rail Road or nearby Long Island Expressway. St. James is a popular summer vacation destination because of its convenient access to north shore beaches. Irving Berlin and Buster Keaton are just two of many notable summer residents.
