The hamlet, part of the Town of Huntington, draws its name from its situation between the larger communities of Huntington and Northport, where residents often go for shopping, dining and cultural pursuits.  Though Centerport does not have a downtown proper, it does have a strip of stores that offers a gym, a deli/general store, bakery, pizza and Chinese restaurants to name a few shops.

Many properties have beach access or dock and mooring privileges. Most residents of a particularly hilly section whose streets are named for presidents are eligible to join the Huntington Beach Community Association, which has a clubhouse, a dock, sandy beach, camp for kids and lobster fests.

In addition to a mansion built by William K. Vanderbilt II, the 43-acre Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum on Little Neck Road has a marine museum, a boathouse and other structures on its grounds, which draw strollers.


Swimming and boating are popular; the Mill Dam Bridge is a favorite fishing spot. Centerport Beach, open to all Town of Huntington residents, includes a section reserved for seniors.

Restaurants include the historic Mill Pond House, on 25A, the more casual Nicky???s of Centerport, on Little Neck Road, and the very casual Shack, at Stony Hollow Road and 25A, which has outdoor picnic tables and is open seasonally, starting in May.


Manhattan via the Long Island Expressway or the Northern State Parkway is an hour to an hour and a half away, or more, depending on traffic. Some residents board the Long Island Rail Road at the Greenlawn station, about a five-minute drive, while others take the 10-minute-or-so drive to the Huntington station, which has more frequent trains and shorter rides.

The train from nearby Greenlawn, which almost always requires a transfer, can take anywhere from an hour and five minutes to an hour and a half.
