Huntington is located approximately 40 miles from Manhattan and 40 miles from Riverhead and the Hamptons. The history of Huntington is closely associated with the early development of the American colonies. The community was originally settled in 1653, well within the lifetime of the earliest New England colonist.

Huntington currently enjoys five harbors bordering its north shore: Cold Spring Harbor, Lloyd Harbor, Huntington, Centerport, and Northport harbors. With its coves and bays there are a total of 9 beaches maintained by the Town. With three operating marinas available to residents, boat ramps, municipal golf courses, and park sites, Huntington provides active recreation for residents.

The Town is within easy commuting distance of New York City. The Long Island Rail Road, which has frequent schedules of trains, accommodates its commuters daily to New York City from the four stations in the Town.

Easily one of the most beautiful sections of Long Island, Huntington and its residents have been part of a proud history that adds to its state-wide appeal. There is something for everyone in Huntington; hard-to-find boutiques, numerous Zagat-rated restaurants, beautiful beaches, breath-taking nature, and great shopping options via Huntington Village and the Walt Whitman Mall. Mahanaim is fortunate to be situated in such an ideal location within New York.
