Brookhaven Hamlet- Its a really small quiet rustic town, with lots to see and do. My favorites being is finding small niche beaches and parks, riding bikes visiting the local library, and going to Bellport town. At nigh there are many restaurants and bars to have fun and meet local people who are hysterical and have more stories than you can hear in a week. During the summer it gets visitors from all around the world, you can meet people from Denmark to New Zealand. So whether you're driving around taking in colonial houses or hanging out at the beach for some fun in the sun, Brookhaven caters to everyone's leisure.
Review Brookhaven
This is a very nice community. The only problems are, in some areas, very elitist, conservative Christians and an obsession with lacrosse. It is, however, very scenic, with many opportunities for students. There is a very close community from village to village
The area where I live in is calming and not too loud. We do live near a university, but it isn't too noisy. I like how everything is close by but not too close where you can walk 2 minutes and get to your destination. There are some things near where I live and if you want a more lively environment, you can drive 10 minutes to port jeff near the dock. It is always full of people and is a great place to hang out.
