South Huntington and Huntington Station are adjoining hamlets in the Town of Huntington.


A map of the Hamlet of South Huntington in the Town of Huntington. Suffolk County:


South Huntington is one of those many villages and hamlets on Long Island where none of the places in the community have the hamlet name in their mailing address: places in the Hamlet of South Huntington have a "Huntington Station, NY 11746", "Dix Hills, NY 11746" and "Melville, NY 11747" mailing address.


A map of the Hamlet of Huntington Station in the Town of Huntington, Suffolk County:


The Hamlet of Huntington Station has a different border than does the "Huntington Station, NY 11746" ZIP Code postal zone (i.e., a place can have a "Huntington Station, NY 11746" mailing address and not be in the Hamlet of Huntington Station and a place can have other than a "Huntington Station, NY 11746" mailing address and be in the Hamlet of Huntington Station): places that have a "Huntington Station, NY 11746" mailing address that are not in the Hamlet of Huntington Station are in the Hamlet of Huntington, the Hamlet of South Huntington, the Hamlet of Greenlawn and the Hamlet of West Hills; and, at the same time, there are places in the Hamlet of Huntington Station with a "Huntington, NY 11743" and "Dix Hills, NY 11746" mailing address.

Also, the Hamlet of Huntington Station is partly in the Huntington Union Free School District and the South Huntington Union Free School District; while the Hamlet of South Huntington is mostly in the South Huntington Union Free School District, with a small part in the Half Hollow Hills Central School District.


Beginning on the north and moving in a clockwise direction, the Huntington Union Free School District includes all or part of the Village of Huntington Bay, the Hamlet of Halesite, the Hamlet of Huntington, the Hamlet of Huntington Station, the Hamlet of West Hills, the Hamlet of Cold Spring Harbor and the Village of Lloyd Harbor.

Technically, it's all "Huntington Station". However, everything south of Jericho Tpk is generally considered "South Huntington"

I know for a fact that no one living in CSH or Lloyd Harbor attends the Huntington schools. None of the streets up the district line have those addresses, all are Huntington.

As for West Hills, I can't think of one street in that area where the kids attend Huntington - they are all South Huntington students. The closest home of Huntington kids used to be the Mohlenhoffs (of the old nursery) on West Rogues Path - but they never considered themselves in West Hills.

There are parts of the Hamlet of Cold Spring Harbor and the Village of Lloyd Harbor that have a "Huntington, NY 11743" mailing address.
