Village of Nissequogue

Incorporated in 1926, The Village of Nissequogue, encompassing 3.6 square miles, is a hidden gem on the North Shore of Long Island tucked between the Nissequogue River and the Village of Head of the Harbor bordered to the north by the Long Island Sound. Founded in 1665 by Richard Bull Smith, it is the original settlement of the Town of Smithtown. It is located approximately 50 miles east of New York City. The Village of Nissequogue is a dream environment for naturalists who value privacy; it is an exclusively residential community with the exception of a private golf course, a private world class equestrian center and a private boarding school. Additionally, there are two beaches available to residents, town permit required. Two acre zoning is the minimum lot size and many properties exceed that minimum. With its own Police Department and Volunteer Fire Department, residents enjoy quick response in case of an emergency. With many horse properties scattered throughout the Village, there is a sense of countrified living, yet residents are a mere fifteen minute drive to the Smith Haven Mall. Indeed, it is the best of both worlds having quiet, bucolic living with easy access to the Long Island Railroad, schools, churches, grocery stores or other commercial enterprises.
