The Incorporated Village of Lindenhurst, located on the south shore of Suffolk County in Babylon Town, is home to 27,000 residents. It is the fourth largest incorporated village in New York State. Lindenhurst’s history dates from the Native American Massapequans and Secatogues, who originally named the area Neguntatogue ("forsaken land"). English settlers first came to this area in the 1600’s, and their dispersal among the Native American lands prompted Jonas Wood to sign a treaty with the Secatogue tribe in 1657, which granted the settlers a small section of land named "Huntington South."

The population concentration of the area, agriculture, remained unchanged until 1867, when the first railroad to access the area was constructed. Charles S. Schleier, a German immigrant who made his fortune in Brooklyn, seized upon this new area, with its new-found connection to outside regions, and dreamed of turning it into a haven for German immigrants. On June 6, 1870, the area was officially named the "City of Breslau" and it soon became a harbor for Germans looking to succeed in America. In the next two years, the town’s first Catholic Church (1870) and the first Lutheran Church (1872) were constructed.

Formerly an agricultural area, Lindenhurst NY now became a manufacturing site. Its primary industries from the late 1800s to the mid 1900s included tailoring, Swiss embroidery, papier-mache, and production of cigars, safety pins, metal fasteners, tar paper, artificial flowers, and so on. Today, the town is known for its construction of electrical goods, aircraft parts, textiles, and metal products. However, Lindenhurst NY does not rely on one specific industry which is a good thing.

Lindenhurst NY officially became an incorporated village in 1923, and its police force was first initiated in 1924. Since that time, the Police Department joined with and became part of the Suffolk County Police Department.

Jackie...3 months on the market is similar to what we're seeing here in middle GA.  There are buyers I just wish more could get qualified.

Hi Anita, I'm finding buyers are getting qualified. As long as they have a good credit score, income, and their debt to income ratio is low. I think the problem is the lack of confidence when it comes to their jobs. At least that is what I'm finding in my area. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
