Life On Long Island

Located in the Northern center of the island, Stony Brook is approximately 50 miles east of New York City, which is easily accessible by both car and 24-hour commuter train Long Island Rail Road (LIRR). A little over one hour drive will take you to Williamsburg while a 1.5hour train ride will drop you off at Penn Station. All the world-famous museums, venues, and restaurants are easily accessible while living among the comfort of suburbia life.

To the East of Stony Brook lies the “fork” of Long Island, with the upper half consisting of great outdoor activities such as day winery trips and museums and the lower half including world renowned beaches such as the Hamptons and Montauk.

Nonetheless, the Stony Brook area itself is considered a haven for residents and visitors alike. It offers pristine golf courses, ethnic restaurant, scenic wineries, and beaches for all tastes (from rocky to powder-soft and tranquil to lively). A South-bound 30 minute drive also reaches the Southern docks where you can take a ferry to Fire Island, one of the most loved summer vacation spots for locals and visitors alike.

In addition to outdoor activities, Long Island offers a great place for family growth, with 42 of Long Island’s school districts ranked within the top 100 statewide districts. There are also myriads of parks and bike trails for those who enjoy the wilderness.
