The quaint and thriving waterfront village of Northport is part of the famous "Gold Coast" along the North Shore. The borders of the village lie between Huntington and Smithtown along Route 25 or Fort Salonga Road just east of Centerport. The historic downtown district, where "Main Street meets the water," features charming boutiques filled with one-of-kind treasures and magnificent harbor views. Numerous Victorian and 18th-century homesteads, shops, and storefronts have been carefully preserved, reflecting a history of Long Island life over the past 400 years. Even new construction is designed to harmonize with vintage structures. Concerts, parades, an annual marathon, and holiday celebrations add to the close-knit spirit of the community. New construction and development is always in harmony with the best of the past. The pride of Northport residents in their roots and their sense of belonging is evident at every turn, particularly the historical society and local museum.
