Yaphank is located in the south part of the Town of Brookhaven. It is served by the Longwood Central School District, except for extreme southwestern Yaphank, which is served by the South Country Central School District. There are many interesting historic facts about this wonderful town of Yaphank such as; Captain Robert Robinson came to Yaphank and built his Dutch Colonial house with the building dated at 1726. He was then granted permission to dam the Carmans River to build a mill across the street from his house. The construction of this mill in 1739 was considered the founding date of the Hamlet of Yaphank. In the mid 18th century, a man named John Homan built two mills along the Carmans River, which runs directly through the center of the town. These two mills inspired the first name for the town: Millville. The translator/author Mary Louise Booth was born in Millville in 1831.

Crime and Safety have a low concentration around my area. Many people in the neighborhood just live simply as all the others, including me. Never is there an incident with police.
The area is overall very calm and quiet. I would most likely live here again if I could do it all over again. For the future of this area, new housing development and strip mall opportunities are being built.
