Seaford Real Estate

Seaford, NY Real Estate, Seaford Area and Community Information

Seaford, New York, is a community of about 14,000 residents in Nassau County. Seaford is situated on the Atlantic coast along the southern shore of Long Island.

History

The area in which Seaford now resides was called the "Great Water Land" by the Marsapeaques, a Native American tribe that once lived here. The community was known as Seaman's Neck for a time, in honor of Capt. John Seaman, who first obtained rights to land in the area. Seaman himself initially named the town Jerusalem South. Ultimately, in 1868, the community was named Seaford to pay homage to Capt. Seaman's hometown in East Sussex, England.

The arrival of the Long Island Railroad in the 19th century stimulated growth in many communities, but Seaford remained a relatively quiet agrarian area. Because of this, Seaford eventually gained popularity as a summer retreat for New Yorkers. The construction of the Sunrise Highway in 1929 resulted in substantial growth. In fact, the population of the community tripled by the early 1950s.

Parks and Recreation

Residents with Seaford NY homes can enjoy a substantial park on the south side of town. Cedar Creek Park offers modern playground facilities and numerous athletic fields.

Those that invest in Seaford real estate enjoy easy access to one of the most outstanding swimming facilities in the country. The Nassau County Aquatic Center was originally constructed for the 1998 International Goodwill Games. The 80,000 sq-ft center includes a 68-meter "stretch" pool that features three movable bulkheads. The facility also includes the only 10-meter competition diving tower in the metropolitan New York area. Areas are also provided for those in Seaford homes to enjoy water exercising, therapeutic swimming and water walking. Finally, the facility also offers members a state-of-the-art fitness center.

Attractions and Activities

Just to the south of Seaford one finds the largest public beach on earth. Jones Beach State Park includes over six miles uninterrupted ocean beachfront. Strollers and hikers enjoy the Jones Beach boardwalk that stretches for over two miles. The park also offers deck games, basketball courts and two outdoor pools. Many residents come to the band shell for summer concerts and even social dancing. Anglers can surf cast or fish from the piers.

Events

The Seaford Summer Festival is held every year at the end of August or early September. Residents enjoy arts and crafts booths and a great selection of seafood and other dishes.
