Consider North Babylon real estate to live in one of the Town of Babylon’s lovely villages. Live in the natural beauty of Long Island, with New York City less than 50 miles away. The entertainment and employment opportunities of the city are within an easy distance, but you get to come home to the peace and serenity of a semi-rural town.
Families with children looking at North Babylon homes will be happy with the schools in the area. There are five elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. All the schools give solid, above-average performance on standardized testing. Parents tend to rate the schools highly for their dedicated teachers and strong academics.
There are many places the community gathers. The North Babylon Public Library is one. There are story times for children, classes and book discussions for adults and teens, and passes for patrons to check out and visit area museums for free. Library card holders can check out books from all over Suffolk County, as well as take advantage of many electronic resources.
Belmont Lake State Park is another local favorite. There are trails for hiking, bike riding, and horseback riding. The lake is open for paddle-boating during the summer. There is also trout and bass fishing. Special community events are hosted at the park for everyone to enjoy. Start searching North Babylon homes and find your own place in this fun and active village.
