Huntington is a suburban community located on the north shore of Long Island, approximately 40 miles east of New York City. The Town of Huntington has an ethnically diverse population of over 200,000. As a leading summer recreation area, the town takes full advantage of its prime location on the Long Island Sound. Huntington's location provides easy access to Long Island's major highways. The Long Island Rail Road and the town's own bus system offer convenient public transportation.
Surrounding the historic Huntington Village Green, the shops, restaurants and theaters blend in with restored colonial homes, museums and parks to shape one of Long Island's major towns. Within minutes of the village center, business offices, shopping malls and colleges attract many community residents. Long known as a Suffolk County cultural center, Huntington has its own thriving Arts Council.
