Long Island Apartments For Rent

Whether you’re interested in living on the beach or living within proximity to a bustling city like New York City, renting your next apartment in Long Island means you can have both! The 120-mile-long island includes numerous famous beaches, including Main Beach and Cooper’s Beach in the Hamptons, the secluded Fire Island National Seashore, and Jones Beach State Park, which includes six and a half miles of beach and a boardwalk. When you aren’t looking to play on the beach, take a trip to one of Long Island’s many maritime and whaling museums. These include Long Island Maritime Museum, Sag Harbor Whaling Museum, and Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum, which has a 19th century whale boat.

Long Island is an excellent place to live in terms of employment opportunities. Besides offering jobs in aviation, science research, and engineering, Long Island contains Hauppauge Industrial Park, the largest industrial park on the East Coast, which employs more than 55,000 Long Island residents. Also, you can commute manageably to jobs in New York City, as almost 20 percent of Long Islanders do; the city is just about an hour away.

But don’t think you have to go to the city for exciting attractions. With 60 vineyards, world-class golf courses, and horseback riding trails available at numerous state parks, you’re never without something to do. Instead of seeing a show on Broadway, check out a performance at one of Long Island’s intimate theater houses. Skip the crowded museums and visit the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, where you’ll learn about both of these abstract painters and how they influenced one another. Renting an apartment in Long Island means a different kind of beach living–the kind where the beach isn’t all the fun.
