Located on Long Island’s North Shore, along the western edge of Suffolk County, overlooking the Long Island Sound, Smithtown is a large, growing, year-round community with a long, exciting history and even brighter future. First settled in the 1600s, the town has grown into one of Long Island’s most desirable real estate destinations.
According to legend, Richard “Bull” Smith made an agreement with the Native Americans in 1665. As a reward for saving his kidnapped daughter, the chief granted Smith all the land he could encircle in one day riding on a bull. The area established the borders that still define the modern-day hamlet of Smithtown.
Main attractions include the Nissequogue River, the beautiful, 543-acre Caleb Smith State Park Preserve, and historic sites like the Franklin O. Arthur Farm. Smithtown also has a “real” downtown including the Village of Nissequogue, which boasts a coveted area with beautiful luxury homes on the Sound.
Smithtown’s bustling main street offers fine restaurants, small boutiques, retail stores, and a performance arts theater. Attracting young buyers for decades, the town’s child-friendly environment and affordable, high-quality homes make the area ideal for families. Beautiful parks, beaches, and golf clubs add to the charm.
The Long Island Rail Road connects Smithtown residents with a 90-minute commute to New York City. Major highways offer short rides to the famous North Fork vineyards, neighborhoods of central Long Island and the Hamptons, beaches of the South Fork, and the quieter residential communities of Stony Brook, Huntington, and Old Field.
