THE SCOOP

Affordable, accessible and centrally located. Those are three ways to describe Commack, originally named Winnecomac, Algonquian for pleasant land.

Without a downtown but with plenty of retail outlets and restaurants, Commack — pronounced Co-mack or Com-mack, a matter still unresolved, according to Long Island: Our Story/ Our towns, a Newsday publication — is one of the more centrally located communities on the Island.

Homes for sale here vary widely in price, says Elena Galluzzo. “Commack is very close to main highways, and you could have first-time homebuyers coming into the community as well as those upgrading,” says the Signature Premier Properties associate real estate broker. “Homes range from $450,000 up to $1 million.”

The school district is another draw. The high school had earlier made the U.S. News and World Report top 100 national list. This year the school produced two state finalists in the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair, according to the school website.

The Daniel J. Flynn Memorial Ball Park on Old Commack Road is undergoing a major upgrade, according to Smithtown Town Supervisor Ed Wehrheim. Planned improvements include resurfacing four ball fields with a synthetic turf and a drainage system, a two-story air-conditioned building with a view of the entire park. It will also have a concession stand, a pro shop and handicapped-accessible restrooms. Additional parking and covered bleachers are also planned.  The park, says Wehrheim, is expected to be ready by the time the shelter-in-place orders are lifted. “This facility will be another gem in a community that is already popular for young families.”
