bay shore community

Bay Shore is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) in the Town of Islip, Suffolk County, New York, United States. It is situated on the South Shore of Long Island, adjoining the Great South Bay.

Bay Shore is one of the older hamlets on Long Island. Sagtikos Manor, located in West Bay Shore, was built around 1697. It was used as a British armed forces headquarters, at the time of the Battle of Long Island during the Revolutionary War. President Washington stayed at the manor during his tour of Long Island in 1790.

Work to restore Bay Shore has been ongoing since the 1980s. Upscale townhouses and condominiums were built in gated communities on the grounds of old estates. The former Bay Shore Theater and one-time opera house was renovated and expanded into a YMCA. The redevelopment of Main Street is ongoing; efforts include new sidewalks, antique-style streetlights, new landscaping and restored parks. Main Street has regained much of its popularity. There are many attractive new restaurants, clothing boutiques and other stores and offices. The Bay Shore Beautification Society transformed an empty lot on Main Street into a meditation garden that has since been recognized for its excellent design.

South of Main Street, also known as Montauk Highway, is an area of mansions and other large homes, built from the 1880s through the 1920s.

let's talk about the marina

The Bay Shore Marina is located at the end of Clinton Avenue in Bay Shore. This regional park boasts 493 boat slips, two launching ramps, Pearl Harbor Memorial, playground and Benjamin’s Beach. Shipwreck Cove, the marina’s very popular spray park, features a wading pool, water slides and a pirate ship play structure in the perfect setting for a fun summer experience the whole family can enjoy. The marina is popular with Town of Islip residents for the many recreation opportunities offered. In addition to the recreation features, the Marina is also the home to Nicky’s on the Bay, an outside concession which provides casual dining and beautiful marina views. Used all season long, the launching ramps allow local residents who do not have slips to launch their boats on a daily basis. The focus of a revitalization project, this marina is complete with a new boardwalk and benches perfect for fishing or simply relaxing by the water. This marina is truly the heart of the south shore
