About Long Beach, NY

Ranked on the list of America’s cleanest beaches. Welcome to this historic City by the Sea.


Long Beach, NY Long Beach, NY Long Beach, NY


Long Beach is one of the older, more established communities on Long Island. Founded in 1880 when the first Long Beach Hotel was built, it has continued to grow at a steady pace (the railroad arrived in 1882 promoting Long Beach as a resort community for vacationers).

Long Beach, NYThe major attraction in its development was the fact that Long Beach is an oceanfront island along Long Island’s south shore which has a moderating effect on its climate. Long Beach averages 10 degrees warmer in the winter and 10 degrees cooler in the summer than inland communities on Long Island and New York City. With the ocean on one side and the bay on the other, Long Beach developed as a seaside community.

By the beach on the oceanfront there is a 2 ¼ mile long boardwalk (built in 1914 with the help of some elephants), where in winter and in summer, one can find strollers, joggers and bicycle riders. A section of the boardwalk is set aside as a bicycle lane and the recent interest in physical fitness has resulted in an increased use of the lighted boardwalk both during the day and at night. The adjacent beach is a 3.5 mile stretch of pure white sand open to the public year round with daily and seasonal rates during the summer.

Long Beach, NYThe City of Long Beach is one of only two cities on Long Island (the other is Glen Cove). Although geographically within the Town of Hempstead located in Nassau County, Long Beach is politically independent and self-governing.

Long Beach was recently ranked as one of the "cleanest beaches in the U.S." by the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), according to an article in The Active Times. The NRDC, which works to "safeguard the earth—its people, plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends," ranked a total of 14 beaches across the US. The 3.3 mile beach, with a 2.2 mile boardwalk, has been reviewed on TripAdvisor as being safe, clean, and having great waves.

Long Beach, NYThere’s a "Walks Section" in Long Beach that was originally built in the 1920's as a military houses. Long Beach was a naval proving ground at the time. It transitioned to a recreation center in the late 1930's and 40's. Several hotels lined the iconic boardwalk. In the 70's and 80's, Long Beach lost favor as a destination and went into decline.

The 90's were a Renaissance for Long Beach as surfers and retirees from other parts of Long Island and the religious community rediscovered the historic houses and boardwalk. The town went through a boom in construction and cooled off after the financial crisis of 2008.

The town was hammered by Hurricane Irene in 2011 and devastated by Sandy in 2012. The boardwalk was destroyed, the bay and ocean swamped the town with 11 feet of water and 9000 metric tons of sand. Slowly, the town dug out.

The Boardwalk was replaced by a majestic concrete reinforced structure with bulkhead to prevent future flooding. It is the center of the town and over 400 new homes have been constructed and thousands have been renovated. New businesses have sprung up and the Beach has never been better and the future never brighter.
