Forty-five miles east of New York City, Hauppauge is a quiet Long Island hamlet split between the towns of Smithtown and Islip at Townline Road. Relatively modest mid-20th century homes on tree-lined streets and a low crime rate make Hauppauge a desirable community for families. Centrally located in Western Suffolk County and convenient to both north and south shore destinations, Hauppauge sits less than two hours from Montauk, the furthest point on Long Island. Many Hauppauge residents work at the nearby Hauppauge Industrial Park, the second largest in the nation, spanning over 1,400 acres. Income from the park, home to more than 1,600 companies that employ over 55,000 people, provides the tax revenues that fund the bulk of the Hauppauge School District’s budget, keeping homeowner taxes low. Hauppauge residents can take advantage of a wide variety of cultural activities in nearby towns. Less than half an hour away, in delightful Northport Village, the John W. Engeman theatre presents a wide variety of plays, musicals, and children’s programming. The Long Island Museum in Stony Brook has a permanent collection of over 40,000 items, including American artifacts, works of art and carriages, many with a Long Island connection. The collection at the Heckscher Museum of Art in Huntington spans 500 years, with an emphasis on the 19th and 20th century. For outdoor activities, Blydenburgh County Park with 627 acres of forested hills and valleys offers visitors a wide range of activities; including hiking, camping under the stars and horseback riding on numerous bridle paths. Rent a rowboat or go fishing in man-made Stump Pond. Beautiful Hidden Pond Park on Terry Road has baseball fields, tennis and handball courts, an Olympic-size swimming pool, as well as miles of scenic nature trails. Two indoor ice rinks at The Rinx provide residents open skating sessions, lessons, and hockey leagues. Throughout the year, the Rinx hosts numerous programs and events, including a preschool and a summer day camp, the Stoll and Run to benefit the Guide Dog Foundation, and the annual Thunder Run and Family Fitness Day, which raises money for the Rolling Thunder Special Needs Program. The convenience and natural beauty of Hauppauge makes it a great place to visit, work, and raise a family.
