Huntington, NY, is a relaxed suburban community that hugs the north shore of Long Island within short driving distance of both Connecticut and New York City. Local amenities are abundant, and the somewhat old-fashioned layout of the town is a boon to pedestrians and motorists alike. Carillon Nursing and Rehab Center is a large skilled nursing facility in Huntington, conveniently close to other medical centers in the area, and adjacent to shopping, dining and recreational attractions.
- Walkability: Walkscore gives Huntington, NY, a walkability score of 47, on a scale of 100. That places this town right in the middle, between residents needing a car for most errands, and totally walkable. The city's borders are never more than 20 minutes away by foot from any point in town.
- Age: Huntington's median age is 47 years, which is significantly older than the 38-year median for New York State, and even higher than the national figure of 37.
- Senior housing: As expected for a community with an older-than-average population, Huntington offers plentiful senior housing. Huntington Senior Citizens' Center and Maryville Adult Home Assisted Living border the town to the north, while Atria and Walt Whitman rest just south of town.
- Climate: Huntington is close to New York City, and it gets much the same weather as the rest of the metro area. Officially, the town gets 48 inches of rain per year, contrasted with the US average of 39. Snowfall averages 25 inches, which is 1 inch less than the national average.
- Veteran's facilities: Huntington boasts its own VFW chapter, close to the town center, but otherwise comes up short for veterans' facilities. Angels for Warriors maintains a facility near the north side of town.
- Buses: Buses crisscross the entirety of Long Island, and in many ways the entire region is treated like one unified community. Few places in Huntington are more than a 5-minute walk from a bus stop, and no place is more than 10.
- Trains: Residents of Huntington have access to the rest of the area, including the City itself, by rail via the lone station in town, at Cold Spring Harbor station to the west.
- Taxis: Taxis don't always make it out to the sleepy towns strung out along Long Island, but many local residents schedule regular pickups on workdays, and sometimes that leaves a canceled cabbie at loose ends downtown looking for a fare back to the City. A more reliable method is to call for a pickup if timing is a priority.
- Ride shares: Huntington is fully served by multiple rideshare companies. Download the apps for both Uber and Lyft, and never be more than a few minutes away from a pickup.
Health and Safety
- Hospitals: Persaud Medical Center flanks Huntington to the south, while Expert Medical Center lies an almost equal distance to the north of town. Carillon Nursing and Rehab is almost equidistant between these facilities, and local ambulances can take emergency patients to either one in roughly equal time.
- Crime: Crime is generally low in this area. While the local murder rate tracks with national averages, almost every other category of serious crime is significantly lower than the rest of the country.
Sports and Leisure
- Golf: Golfers who retire in Huntington have their pick of local golf courses. Four public courses ring the town in all directions, while private clubs can be found nearby for those who know where to look.
- Tennis: The Park Avenue Tennis Club offers Huntington residents the chance to play a few games of singles and doubles in the clement summer and autumn, while Huntington Indoor Tennis has players covered, literally, all year round.
- Gyms: Kids growing up in Huntington can get their workout at My Gym Children's Fitness, close to downtown, while adults may prefer a short trip north to The Little Gym of Huntington, where aerobics and strength training are both available, as well as senior-friendly fitness programs.
Shopping and Entertainment
- Clothes shopping: Plenty of options exist for local residents who need a new outfit. Marshall's, Kmart and Mitchell's all operate in town, as do several specialty clothiers and boutique shops.
- Grocery stores: Most Huntington residents shop for groceries at the Stop-and-Shop, near the town center. Surrounding communities have their own favorite stores, and none of them is more than a few minutes away by car.
- Luby's: No Luby's locations are available in Huntington, and it's a long walk to the nearest one €” over 250 miles away, in Washington, D.C.
- Other restaurants: Restaurants are all over Huntington. These range from super-casual and fast food, which seems to be everywhere, to finer, more sit-down style cuisine along the main drag.
- Movie theaters: Three theaters help to keep Huntington residents entertained. AMC Loew's, Paramount and Cinema Arts Centre are all relatively close to Carillon's central location in the city.
- Libraries: Huntington Public Library operates its main site close to downtown, while the Huntington Historical Society maintains a site close to Herschel Park.
- Religious facilities: Huntington's most faithful citizens have an embarrassment of choice for where to attend services. Episcopal, Catholic, Presbyterian and Christian Scientist houses of worship are clustered close together near the town's inner ring, while other faiths are well-represented just a few miles out in the neighboring communities.
