Mount Sinai (New York)
For other places with the same name, see Sinai (disambiguation)
The first inhabitants of Mt. Sinai were the Native Americans, followed by colonial settlers. In more recent years, new home construction began. In the early 1960’s, the suburbanization of the once vast farmland increased. Many people migrated east to escape the “city-life” and retreat to a quiet, family oriented suburban area. Within the past ten years, the development of Mt. Sinai has been aimed at building private communities and classic housing developments. Some of the most recent include Island Estates, The Orchards, The Ranches and The Hamlet. Each development has different amenities, appealing to all age groups, hobbies and social classes.
In this small Long Island town there aren't endless options of entertainment. The main attractions are Cedar Beach, which is open to all residents of the town of Brookhaven. The only requirement for entry is a legitimate form of identification. Mt. Sinai harbor is located at the tip of Cedar beach. Here locals dock their boats and can easily travel to Connecticut, across the Long Island Sound. Within walking distance of the entrance to the beach itself is a park for small children, a snack bar and outdoor restaurants for everyone. Some of the other activities Mt. Sinai has to offer are Casa Del Sol day spa and Inline One Skate-park.
