Port Jefferson Station

Port Jefferson Station

Getting its name from the Long Island Rail Road station at its border with the neighboring North Shore village of Port Jefferson, the hamlet of Port Jefferson Station, NY is in the Suffolk County town of Brookhaven. The triangle-shaped hamlet lies just to the south of Port Jefferson and east of Setauket; its southern portion lies within the hamlet of Terryville. 

This classic Long Island community is a peaceful and friendly place to call home; there's a strong sense of community here residents enjoy Friday night football games and school functions. Most of the area is served by the Comsewogue school district (the name comes from the hamlet's original Native American name). 

Affordability is one reason Port Jefferson Station has been a top choice for residents homes here cost less than in Port Jefferson Village; a similar small-town feel without the latter's tourist traffic is another reason. A wide variety of homes can be found here, from small cottages to large houses on acres of land. You'll also find a number of apartment complexes here. Housing tends to be more expensive nearer to Port Jefferson's quaint shops, restaurants and galleries in a historic Victorian town center. 

The 1,200-acre campus of the State University of New York at Stony Brook and the adjoining Stony Brook University Hospital are top employers in the area, and Staller Center at Stony Brook University is a popular destination for cultural events. Local shopping, restaurants and a movie theater can be found in the strip malls along the Nesconset Highway 9/Route 347. Residents enjoy a public golf course at the hamlet's western end, and Long Island Sound with its beaches, boat launches and other waterfront activities lies just to the north. 

The LIRR train station is at the hamlet's northern border, and the commute to Manhattan (55 miles away) can take from an hour and a half to just over two hours. The same trip takes about 75 minutes by car. A ferry to Bridgeport, CT stops at Port Jefferson.
