West Islip Real Estate

Bordered by Deer Park and Brentwood to the north, Bay Shore to the east and the villages of Babylon and West Babylon to the west, West Islip, NY is a hamlet shared by the towns of Babylon and Islip in Suffolk County on the South Shore of Long Island. The hamlet's southern border is Great South Bay and, just past some of the island's best parks and beaches and popular getaway Fire Island, the Atlantic Ocean. With a population of around 30,000 dispersed among seven neighborhoods, West Islip is the 46th largest community in the state of New York.

Home prices here cover a wide range, from millions for prime beachfront property on Great South Bay to a far more accessible range well inland. Typical buyers here are young families and others seeking an alternative to similar but pricier areas in neighboring Nassau County. There are several condominium complexes, but the majority of the hamlet's residents live in single-family Cape Cods, split-levels and colonials.

New residents have likely moved here for West Islip's well-regarded schools. Another popular draw is proximity to some of the island's best state parks and Atlantic Ocean beaches like Robert Moses State Park and Jones Beach; Fire Island is just a ferry ride away, and West Islip has its own beach and marina. While West Islip is primarily residential, surrounding towns like Bay Shore provide more dining and shopping opportunities. Local stores and restaurants line Montauk Highway, Union Boulevard and Sunrise Highway, and residents also have shopping options at Sunrise Mall in East Massapequa and the South Shore Mall in Bay Shore as well as the vast complex of outlet stores at the nearby Tanger Outlet Center. The 50-member West Islip Symphony Orchestra holds three major concerts a year and New York City is just 45 miles away.

The nearest Long Island Railroad station is in Babylon Village, about a ten minute drive away. The commute time to New York City's Penn Station is just under an hour and 15 minutes.
