Port Jefferson Reviews
Rating 4.4 out of 5 20 reviews
I’ve lived in Port Jefferson my whole life and love it here. It can get really crowded with visitors and tourists in the summer months which is hard for residents just trying to run errands or enjoy their own space, which is really the only downside. The Village itself is historic/quaint and there are plenty of food and shopping establishments. There’s even a little mini grocer that you can stop at for food staples or to grab a deli sandwich. Most people are really friendly but in a NY way, so not super close but the community is tight knit in its own way. You can always ask a neighbor for a recommendation or advice. The school system is small but really quite good and there are lots of programs for kids at the library and village center. Throughout the year there are village events that are a lot of fun for adults and kids like the Dicken’s Festival, sailboat regatta and ice sculpture fest. There’s also summer movies and concerts on the waterfront. Best place on LI!
Its a great little village with amazing schools. Great for families. On the more expensive side. Traffic and parking in the downtown area can be annoying during the weekends and summer.
The beaches there are very nice and relaxing. The liveliness of main street brings character to the small port town.
I have lived in Port Jefferson my entire life. Not only is it a beautiful town on the water with a main street filled with amazing restaurants and stores, but the school district is really great. Everyone is always so shocked at how small the class sizes are at the schools, but it creates a great, comfortable environment to grow up in.
I live in Port Jefferson, but my kids attend Three Village schools, so I'm kind of parts of both communities. Port Jefferson itself is a great little village with lots of great bars and restaurants, fun outdoor activities in the summer, and a great local theater, Theatre Three.
Port Jefferson is a beautiful place and I have loved the tight community from the school district to the down town village.
I love living in Port Jeff. If you want to have a nice day, downtown Port Jeff is the place to be. You can go to the beach if you like to take long walks on beaches. There are many food options if you are feeling hungry. If you want to go see a play you can always find one a Theater Three. The school system is great and all the teachers truly do care about how their students are doing and will provide a lot of support if the student needs it.
Very cute town with stores and places to eat. access to ferry to take you to connecticut. Port Jefferson is a historical town.

Beautiful harbor town on the north shore of Long Island. Close to Stony Brook University. Great place to raise a family.
Port Jefferson Village is one of the top villages in the country any time of the year you can enjoy shopping entertainment and restaurants.
The perfect little harbor front village. There are beaches and great small shops to see during the day. At nights there are so many restaurants and night life to chose from, you're sure to have a great time!
Port Jefferson is a small town with a beautiful village full of great restaurants and shops. Port Jefferson village also has a ferry that goes to and from Connecticut across the harbor.
There are some kinds of people I don't trust and a few crimes have taken place. But it isn't common
I love Port Jeff, it's a very cute and quaint town. It's like something out of a movie-very neighborly and small place. Lots of bars and restaurants to visit and little shops to buy one of a kind things in. It's also right on the water- from Spring to Fall it's great for kayaking and evening strolls. The only problems with the town is that were starting to lose a lot of business. In the few years I've lived here I have noticed a decline in customers and visitors. It makes local business's unable to stay open. A big problem is that there is pretty much no free parking and the small amount of free parking there is is timed- it has greatly effected business. There is also only one hotel right in town and it's very expensive. We could definitely do with a little B&B that is on the less expensive side to help bring in people that want to pop out for a quick weekend.
Port Jefferson is a summer tourist town. It is best described as a cocktail and ice cream town. We have an excellent school system and have access to Manhattan via the train which is great. Big box shops/mall is 10 miles away. One difficult thing about Long Island in general is that it is very expensive to live here. Taxes are off the wall! I I I do like living in this area because we are 1 mile to LI Sound and 18 miles to the Atlantic Ocean Beaches which are beautiful. Stony Brook University is about 4 miles away and has a good hospital. It is a very self contained operation; there is no "College town" generated by Stony Brooks students.
