THE SCOOP Named for its centerpiece railroad station, and dotted with tree-lined neighborhoods, Huntington Station is “a great location for shopping, for getting on the highways, for traveling, and not far from beaches and parks” said Linda Faraldo of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

Located about 2 miles south of Huntington village's bustling Main Street shopping district, the hamlet has many mom-and-pop stores, restaurants and services along its own main thoroughfare, New York Avenue.

Development in the hamlet came soon after the 1867 opening of the train station, which was surrounded at the time by farmland. When the post office was established in 1890, the area was called Fair Grounds, after the annual fairs held at a 1-mile horse racing track and in the area. In 1911, the name was changed to Huntington Station.

In the mid-1960s, the once-thriving business district around the station was replaced by parking lots through an expansive urban renewal project that included the 260-unit Whitman Village, a public-housing project west of the train station.

In recent years, there’s been a burst of development north of the station, including the 66-unit rental Gateway Plaza, 32-unit rental Northridge complex, and the 14-townhouse Columbia Terrace development on Railroad Street, which gives preference to veterans.

A $66 million sewer expansion project will begin early next year, heralding significant mixed-use development along the 2-mile expanse south of the station.

“I anticipate a lot of capital investment into the area over the next five to seven years that’s going to truly revitalize that area,” said Town of Huntington Supervisor Ed Smyth.

Other plans for the hamlet include the relocation of Dolan Family Health Center, a state-of-the-art health care facility slated for a fall opening, and renovations coming this summer to Alfred J. Walker and Depot Road Richard Holst memorial parks. Manor Field, home to a new spray park, will also be the site of a community center that will open in the next few years.

In addition to the rental complexes, there are single-family Colonials, Capes and ranches on small to sprawling parcels, with prices ranging from $300,000 to $1.5 million for a home on a parklike acre.
