Small-town charm meets big-city sophistication.

 
Just outside our 50-acre campus lies the greater community of Setauket — part of the historic Three Village area, which encompasses the villages of Old Field, Poquott, the Setaukets, and Stony Brook, each of which has rich historic roots dating back to when Native Americans called this region home. Living here positions you to enjoy the cultural advantages, shopping, and entertainment offered on Long Island’s North Shore—charming towns like Port Jefferson—as well as New York City itself. You’re never more than 30 minutes from the beach. Jefferson’s Ferry is indeed the sweet spot between small-town charm and big-city sophistication.
