THE SCOOP   

Overlooking Bellport Bay is the eponymous South Shore community that is home to a mix of hard-working locals, and seasonal and year-round residents. The hamlet includes southern Bellport, which was incorporated in 1910, and the remaining area, referred to as North Bellport. Village residents have exclusive access to a golf club, which includes tennis courts, a marina with a kayak launch, boat slips, a boat ramp, a playground and a bandshell, as well as to the village-owned Ho Hum Beach on Fire Island, says Bellport Mayor Ray Fell.  The village bought the beach in 1963 for $25,000, he says. It was “the idea of the mayor at the time who had wonderful instinct and vision,” Fell says.

The area seems to attract New Yorkers happy to avoid the long trip to the Hamptons, a good 1½ hours away, according to Steve Porcaro from Rice Realty Group, Bellport Village. 

There are two large projects underway. Crews this month are expected to finish rehabilitating the Village Dock, which was damaged during superstorm Sandy. The work includes a new bulkhead, boardwalk and electrical service, among other things, Fell says.

A developer is also building a 70-unit workforce housing complex on a 7-acre lot north of Montauk Highway in North Bellport. Work on the project started recently and the complex is expected to open at the end of 2021, says Peter Florey, a principal at D&F Development Group. “The community has provided invaluable input on design, open space, a playground area as well as hiring locals for the job, and we have committed to all of it,” Florey says.

The project, which is near the LIRR station, “will help keep people in the community” says Michael Loguercio, Brookhaven Town councilman. The town and Loguercio have also been “petitioning the MTA to change the Bellport fare zone to the same as Patchogue,” Loguercio says.
