Welcome to Bay Shore

A vibrant and exciting location blossoming into a contemporary hub


Full of young, hip energy, Bay Shore is perched on the South Shore of Long Island, encompassing about five and half square miles.

Revitalization projects from recent years have continued that transformation, turning Bay Shore into a destination for anyone seeking vibrant surroundings complete with natural beauty and contemporary luxuries. 


Homes throughout Bay Shore only add to its allure. Many housing developments found their footing right after World War II as the town’s population rose. New and old developments include waterfront houses, single-family homes, split-levels, and more — your dream home can be found in Bay Shore. With many home architects in the area, there’s nothing holding homeowners back from realizing their ideal. For anyone seeking a great community, vibrant contemporary atmosphere, and a beautiful home complete with verdant green space.
