Bustling and densely populated, Huntington Station is proud of its cultural diversity. Residents of different racial and cultural backgrounds live in harmony in Huntington Station, where they work together through the local organization to develop and help to guide their hometown. The South Huntington Public Library is located in Huntington Station on Pidgeon Hill Road, serving as a resource for students and a center of continuing education for adults. With the high school named for the area's famous son, Walt Whitman, the quality of education is exceptional. Several sweeping parks and hiking trails surround the monument of Walt Whitman's birthplace, and close proximity to the shore encourages water sports. Expansive commercial development ensures a convenient lifestyle. No less than seven colleges and universities are available within a 20-mile radius.
