History of site and related water issues
The Long Island Sound covers the entire northern coast of Long Island. Its many beaches are used for swimming, fishing and recreational boating of all kinds, from kayak, to catamaran, sail to motor. We share our water with swans, mallards, sea gulls, osprey and hawks. Tuna, blue fish, oysters and mussels are among the food that some still harvest.
We are challenged to keep our waters clean of motor oil, gasoline, lawn care products and fecal matter.
Northport Harbor is one on several hundred public and private boating harbors offering joy and pleasure to thousand of Long Island and New York City residents.
