Old Bethpage has ‘the best’ of what Oyster Bay Town has to offer

THE SCOOP Supervisor Joseph Saladino calls Old Bethpage a quaint community that “enjoys the best of what the Town of Oyster Bay has to offer, including beautiful tree-lined streets, a top-notch school system and nearby commerce.”

[Old Bethpage features many high-ranches, Colonials, ranches, split-levels and splanches, unlikeBethpage, where Cape Cod styles are very common]

“The beauty of Old Bethpage is that there really are no main roads there,” Macaluso says, although the Long Island Expressway and Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway are just outside of the hamlet. “It’s mostly neighborhoods. No stores, really, just one little shopping center. That’s what makes it so attractive.”

Well-known sites in the area include the Old Bethpage Village Restoration, a living history museum portraying 19th century Long Island, and Bethpage State Park, a near-1,500-acre park that sits almost entirely in Old Bethpage and offers five golf courses, hiking and biking trails, playing fields and other amenities. The Greenbelt Trail also passes through Old Bethpage. Additional attractions and open spaces in the area, Saladino says, are Plainview-Old Bethpage Community Park, Borella Field and Haypath Park. The latter features a playground that opened in June 2016 and includes equipment designed for children with disabilities.
