Islip has a long and rich history, dating back to its founding in 1683, by William Nicoll. It is a seaside community, with deep roots in fishing, boating and farming, but is also home to Long Island’s original Gold Coast, where esteemed families such as the Roosevelts and Vanderbilts had luxurious summer estates, and Blue Point Oysters were made world famous. The town’s close proximity to the Great South Bay and Robert Moses Causeway makes it the perfect home for anyone who loves the sea.
