Default For those who may not be familiar with Bellport

You should be aware that there are places that have a "Bellport, NY 11713" mailing address that are not in the Village of Bellport.


For those who may not be familiar with Bellport:

Bellport is a village (incorporated in 1908) is in the southwest part of the Town of Brookhaven, in the center-south part of Suffolk County.

Beginning on the north and moving in a clockwise direction, the Village of Bellport in the Town of Brookhaven is bordered on the north by the Hamlet of North Bellport and the Hamlet of Brookhaven; on the east by Bellport Bay and the Great South Bay; on the south by the Great South Bay; and, on the west by the Hamlet of East Patchogue.





The Village of Bellport has a different border than does the "Bellport, NY 11713" ZIP Code postal zone (i.e., a place can have a "Bellport, NY 11713" mailing address and not be in the Village of Bellport and a place can have other than a "Bellport, NY 11713" mailing address and be in the Village of Bellport): places with a "Bellport, NY 11713" mailing address that are not in the Village of Bellport are in the Hamlet of East Patchogue and the Hamlet of North Bellport; and, at the same time, there are places in the Village of Bellport that have a "Patchogue, NY 11772" mailing address.


For a good set of town-by-town maps showing all the villages and hamlets in each of LI's 13 towns (3 in Nassau County and 10 in Suffolk County): Excellent Long Island Geographic Resource

North of Sunrise is middle-class nice (similar to the Pines in Medford or the other various Levitt/Farber houses around there). South of Head of the Neck (village boundary) is "how can I afford this?" nice.

Schools are a bit lousy, but I wouldn't say it's the teachers' fault. It's hard to teach someone when they don't care and will never care. Some of the North Bellport/East Patchogue people are rather content in reveling in their bad situation instead of trying to better themselves.

Location is rather decent (geographically speaking). It's less than 5 minutes to Sunrise, and about 10 minutes to the LIE (via Route 101 or Horseblock Road).

Plenty of supermarkets around, despite there only being two small IGAs in Bellport itself (both on South Country). There's a Super Stop and Shop on the corner of 101 and Station Road in Medford, a Pathmark on 112 just north of Sunrise in Patchogue (about 5 minutes away), and Waldbaums and King Kullen in the western part of Patchogue. Shoprite is also rumored to be opening on Montauk Highway in the old Waldbaum's in East Patchogue.

There's a decent downtown in Bellport Village, and nearby Patchogue Village is also on the rebound. It's the stuff in the middle (East Patchogue and North Bellport) that's very rundown.

South Country School district is not bad. Had a 3.8 gpa when I left and held a 3.8 gpa through college. and 5 out of 5 kids in my family went to college. I was 1 of 2 of the 5 kids in my family that attended Sayville Schools also and that is a bad school District. In Bellport Teachers are real and if you don't want to be there no one will stop you from going. and the teachers pay more attention to the student who are cool with school. Mr Camrin and Mr. Budris Mr.Scot Mr. Folks and Mr. Weidow where the best teachers ever. I am 26 years old and Starting another Degree in Engineering.

Yeah, the stats for South Country are bad, but when you have a large portion that just doesn't care, it's always going to look terrible.

South Country is what you and your child make of it. I would say it's in better shape than some of the districts surrounding it (cough cough *PAT-MED, FLOYD*).

I know a lot a affluent residents of Bellport and Brookhaven Hamlet that could have sent their children to private schools but instead sent them to Bellport and they didn't have a problem. In fact, I feel the children I came in contact with were very bright, respectful and intelligent.
I'm not saying that Bellport doesn't have problems, but EVERY Town does. Bellport Village is quaint, with small shops and a few good restaurants. Actually, a very famous actress lives there. A bit north of the village is rundown, but it has always been that way. If you can't afford a home in the village of Bellport, then my second choice would be Brookhaven Hamlet.

We are going to be stationed in the Amityville area but are looking at living in Bellport. Can anyone tell me how bad the traffic is from Bellport to Amityville in the morning. Also what are the utilities like on average in the winter and summer time?
