What part of the Lake Ronkonkoma is in Smithtown, and Islip???

by looking at a map I can only guess that the tiny section south of the LIE would be in Islip but correct me if im wrong. The Smithtown part always got me. Does anyone know the exact lines?

I don't trust wikipedia. I can change it to be in Wyoming If I wanted it to.

Whenever I see anything on Lake Ronk in the newspaper - it is always being handled/controled by the town of Brookhaven.

The town line is on Rosevale Avenue, about 1/4 mile south of Smithtown Bypass. Islip is south of that line, Smithtown north. ALso, that is just Ronkonkoma, not Lake Ronkonkoma....technically two separate towns, separated by the lake. The town of Brookhaven is on the east side of the lake. It's a weird division for sure, with 3 different townships basically surrounding the lake.

The funny thing is, if you'd have asked something about which area has better schools or nicer homes, he'd have been here 3 seconds later with your map.

Thanks. I always knew that the east side of the Lake was a different town/hamlet of Lake Ronk, but wasent sure where the Smithtown part was.

And Gordon you are dead on! lol...how dare I have general curiosity!

Note: the following map is is from the Suffolk County Planning Department and is used by the Census Bureau ...

A map of the Hamlet of Lake Ronkonkoma in the the Town of Smithtown and the Town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County:


Lake Ronkonkoma is one of those many villages and hamlets on Long Island where none of the places in the community have the community name in their mailing address: most places in the Hamlet of Lake Ronkonkoma have a "Ronkonkoma, NY 11779" mailing address; while some others have a "Nesconset, NY 11767" and "Lake Grove, NY 11755" mailing address.

I know all of this already, but Walter, why does your map not say it is in the town of Islip? is the hamlet of Lake Ronk within Islip at all? or just Smithtown and Brookhaven?

I am also aware that Ronk and Lake Ronk are two different hamlets.

Because no part of Lake Ronkonkoma is in the Town of Islip.

According to the Suffolk County Planning Department and as agreed to by the Census Bureau, Lake Ronkonkoma is partly in the Town of Smithtown and partly in the Town of Brookhaven, with no part in the Town of Islip.

And, just to make sure, I double-checked with the 2010 Census and the map looks the same as the one used in the 2000 Census, as shown above:

Default A map of the Hamlet of Ronkonkoma in the Town of Islip, Suffolk County

Ironically, and as already pointed out by Sean Sean Sean Sean in a previous thread, the actual lake -- Lake Ronkonkoma, the lake, not the hamlet -- is in Ronkonkoma, which is in the Town of Islip.

A map of the Hamlet of Ronkonkoma in the Town of Islip, Suffolk County:



The Hamlet of Ronkonkoma has a different border than does the "Ronkonkoma, NY 11779" ZIP Code postal zone (i.e., a place can have a "Ronkonkoma, NY 11779" mailing address and not be in the Hamlet of Ronkonkoma and a place can have other than a "Ronkonkoma, NY 11779" mailing address and be in the Hamlet of Ronkonkoma): places that have a "Ronkonkoma, NY 11779" mailing address that are not in the Hamlet of Ronkonkoma are in the Hamlet of Lake Ronkonkoma in the Towns of Smithtown and Brookhaven, the Hamlet of Bohemia and the Hamlet of Holtsville; and, at the same time, there are places in the Hamlet of Ronkonkoma with a "Central Islip, NY 11722", "Holbrook, NY 11741" and "Bohemia, NY 11716" mailing address.

Right. But the wiki page is about the hamlet of lake ronkonkom,a - which said it was in Islip, so I changed it.
