Mt. Sinai is a small town located on the east coast of Long Island in New York, bordering the north shore of the Long Island Sound.

Understand[edit]

History[edit]

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.
