The village of Patchogue sits on the south shore of Long Island in Suffolk County, New York. Part of the town of Brookhaven, Patchogue was officially incorporated in 1893 and has less than an hour commute to New York City. The beautiful neighborhood, very low cost of living for Suffolk County and close proximity to New York City and Manhattan make Patchogue an ideal place to live.

For the seafood fans, The Oar Steak & Seafood Grill serves fresh-caught seafood from the bay and garnishes its sautéed muscles and tasty fried calamari with marinara and red pepper aioli. For a night out, Bobbique has one of the most popular spots in the neighborhood with live blues music and what Newsweek named the best chicken in Long Island.

The area of land known as Patchogue was originally purchased by Governor Winthrop of Connecticut in 1664 and sat undeveloped for many years after. In the late 1700s, the first mill was built along the Patchogue River to produce lace. Many businesses later saw the benefits of the river and begin to build there as well, attempting to use the river as a quick shipping method for their factories.
The first major factory was built in 1798, which was a paper mill built near the site of the original lace mill. A cotton twine mill was later added in 1800. The building of the mills brought many jobs and a large amount of people to Patchogue in the early 1800s, which led to schools and many retail shops popping up.
The neighborhood makes use of its natural riverfront and harbor to remain a largely self-contained community. Many notable residents hail from Patchogue, including Toronto Blue Jays Pitcher Marcus Stroman, actor Kevin Connolly best known for playing”E” in Entourage and famous rock musician Billy Idol, whose family moved there when he was 2 and moved back to the UK four years later.
For transportation around the neighborhood, walking and biking serve as cheap alternatives for running errands and exercise. Patchogue features bike lanes and sidewalks, which makes both forms of transportation a viable option. For traveling outside of the neighborhood or commuting to the city, the LIRR Montauk Branch station serves the area. Many residents also use the Village of Patchogue bus as another option to travel outside the neighborhood. Call a taxi, or use Uber or Lyft to travel within the area or to the city by accessing their phone applications. Highway 27 and I-495 both run nearby, making the commute to New York City and anywhere off of the island very convenient and simple.
Patchogue has lower costs for most items compared to New York City, but prices for items can still be somewhat high due to the county’s sales tax of 8.625%. Patchogue has a median rent cost of $1,359 for a one-bedroom apartment, slightly below the Suffolk County median rent cost of $1,488 and well below the New York median cost of $2,312. The area’s median rent for a two-bedroom apartment has a monthly cost of $1,159, also well below the Suffolk County and New York state averages.
The neighborhood has shopping hubs on both East Main Street and Ocean Boulevard. For a specialty store, indulge in the goodies at Wisteria Lane Boutique. The boutique carries unique gifts such as handmade jewelry, soaps, candies and hand-knitted items. Wisteria Lane believes in customer appreciation days. On these special occasions, Wisteria Lane celebrates its customers with cups of coffee and sweet treats while they browse selections of specialty items.
The Sun Vet Mall sits less than five miles from the outside of the neighborhood, just off of Sunrise Highway, and has over 30 different stores including many useful shops and bargain stores such as Verizon, Toys R Us, Payless Shoe Source, Hallmark, Grand Rise Liquors, Citibank and Dollar King.

Angora Food Market has all different types of Turkish food including a huge baked goods and fresh food section. Other shopping options in the area include Costco and a Whole Foods.
Patchogue has multiple parks for outdoor enthusiasts, including Shorefront Park, Davis Ferry Park and Rider Avenue Park.

The park has several trails for joggers and bikers with a great view of the bay.
Davis Ferry Park borders the coast as well and has a beach club, casino restaurant/bar and a ferry ride.
