Mount Sinai has done a good job of preserving its past — the charming structures in its historic district along North Country Road — while embracing new developments for seniors, millennials and families.
The residential community is home to Mount Sinai Harbor and its popular Cedar Beach, a fishing pier and nature preserve on a peninsula that cuts off the harbor from the Long Island Sound.
The area is a short drive from St. Charles Hospital and the Long Island Rail Road stop in Port Jefferson.
“You can get down Port in two seconds,” raves Dina Powers, a listing agent for Signature Premier Properties and 33-year Mount Sinai resident.
The Heritage Park, which hosts annual events like a Halloween festival, Christmas tree lighting, summer movie nights and carnivals, is popular with residents from the “small and tight-knit” hamlet and people from other communities, says Councilwoman Jane Bonner, who has represented the community for 12 years.
Mount Sinai Meadows, a proposed mixed-use development on a 30-acre lot off Route 25A, is being marketed as millennial housing because “our kids are being priced out,” Bonner says.
The rentals will also have a retail component and a communal village square.
The school district, with its elementary, middle and high schools all on the same campus, has a special draw. “It’s a small community,” Powers says. “It’s just very warm.”
