Suffolk County NY Real Estate
Suffolk County, located on the eastern portion of Long Island, NY, covers roughly 1,000 square miles of territory and is 86 miles long and 26 miles wide at its widest point.
Together with Nassau County, Suffolk County makes up the region that New Yorkers refer to as the official “Long Island”, minus the boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn, which are also technically located on the island.
Suffolk County is made up of three distinct areas. The mainland area of the county and The North Fork and The South Fork. These two regions are separated by the Great Peconic Bay, the Little Peconic Bay, and Gardiners Bay.
The mainland area, stretching from the island North to South covers most of the area and is similar to Nassau County in that the makeup is suburban in nature and has many small hamlets and villages, each with their own distinct attractions.
The farthest reaches of Suffolk County are about 90 miles from New York City, so it takes a little while to get there, although the Long Island Railroad makes the trip relatively easy.
