"A wonderful community, where you can see horse farms, ride or take lessons. A great alternative to the Hamptons."

Young's farm the best for vegetables and homemade pies a quaint country store full of gifts to buy. All my buyers love when I give them a tour of the Hamlet of Old Brookville.

"I Love My Neighood!!!!!"

While there are many beautiful towns & villages on the North Shore of Long Island, I must say I love Old Brookville. As I long time resident, I have come to really appreciate so many wonderful quality about the village. While located only a few miles north of the LIE, when you enter Old Brookville it is like you are in a different world. Beautiful homes and properties are surrounded by farms & vineyards. Almost like the Hamptons only closer to NYC. Plus, we are only minuets away from many of the Islands top restaurants and world class shopping. As I said, there are many wonderful places to live on Long Island, but I love my neighborhood.
