About West Islip, NY

West Islip, NY is hamlet in the Town of Islip along Long Island’s Spectacular South Shore. It’s about 45 miles east of New York City, which is close enough to commute by car or train via the Long Island Railroad but far enough from the City’s hustle and bustle to enjoy the suburban lifestyle. About 35,000 people call the 4,000 acre hamlet home. West Islip’s geographic location is the first item on a long list of reasons why it is such a desirable place to live. To the south there is the Great South Bay which offers incredible year-round water views, including the Robert Moses Causeway adding some man-made elegance to the skyline. A short ride from West Islip on the Robert Moses Causeway will grant you access to Captree Boat Basin to satisfy the fisherman in you or if you prefer to be in the water yourself, a little further on the Causeway and you’ll be at Robert Moses State Park’s ocean beaches. But West Islip residents don’t have to cross bridges to get to the beach; they have access to West Islip’s own beach and marina.
