Overview of Bay Shore

Bay Shore is located in southern New York on the south side of Long Island. This census-designated place is positioned roughly 43 miles east of New York City and can easily be accessed via road, rail, air travel, or water passage. Bay Shore has an estimated population of 26,337 people as of 2010, and Bay Shore apartments for rent can be found all across the 5.27 square miles of land encompassed here.

Bay Shore is known as the heart of the South Shore. It's known as a family-friendly community, with nearly one-fourth of its population under the age of 18. Positioned within Suffolk County, the Bay Shore community is able to call the Greater Bay Shore area its backyard and the incorporated village of Brightwaters and Islip its neighbors.

Living in Bay Shore, NY

According to the Bay Shore Chamber of Commerce, this area's central location along the south shore of Long Island provides residents with numerous metropolitan amenities and the pleasures of a waterfront community. The source revealed that people living in Bay Shore apartments take pride in being part of a "true American community," their families, homes, neighbors and quality of life.

The land that the Bay Shore community sits on today was originally purchased from Native Americans in 1701 and established by an English Royal Patent in 1708. This community is also known as the "Gateway to Fire Island," and made considerable efforts to maintain its unique heritage over the years including the quaintness of a small fishing village, the history of Victorian homes, canals, waterways, docks and marinas.

Bay Shore Work and Study

The Bay Shore Chamber of Commerce said the community has historically attracted businesses, as companies recognize the area's prime central location, government incentives and east access to a number of key resources. Bay Shore apartments for rent are attractive options for business professionals and students. The most common industry for this community is the retail trade industry and the most common occupation types are management, business, science, and arts occupations. The Chamber of Commerce revealed that Entenmann's bakery got its start here with German immigrant William Entenmann, whose bakery is today one of the largest and most famous in the world.

Students can take advantage of a number of nearby higher education facilities, including the Suffolk County Community College, Western Campus and Dowling College.
