Yaphank Real Estate

The hamlet of Yaphank, NY is in the Long Island town of Brookhaven in Suffolk County. With a population of just over 5,000, Yaphank is one of several central Long Island communities served by the Longwood Central School District (excepting a small southwestern portion which is in the South Country Central School District).

The hamlet's Long Island Rail Road station was built in 1843; At the time, this changed the area from sleepy mill town to major commercial center almost overnight. In the years since that time, the Long Island Railroad station has remained, making commuting and travel convenient for residents. The town, however, is now a more quiet village than commercial hub, and many who live here like it that way. Yaphank is, for the most part, a residential community of single-family homes.

During World War I, Yaphank was home to Camp Upton, a boot camp. One notable soldier who trained at Camp Upton was songwriter Irving Berlin. It was here that he composed the Broadway-bound musical comedy Yip Yip Yaphank. The site of the former camp is now the home of the Brookhaven National Laboratory. The Suffolk County Farm and Education Center offers a glimpse into the workings of an authentic century-old farm as well as educational programs run by the Cornell Cooperative Extension.

In addition to the Long Island Rail Road it takes about one hour and 45 minutes to reach Penn Station in New York City the Long Island Expressway runs through the center of town for easy access to other parts of the island and beyond.
