Look Back on Bay Shore's
300 Years of History


Welcome to Greater Bay Shore, an unparalleled place to call home. In addition to its nautical amenities, this bayside community boasts a steadily expanding economic base and an abundance of recreational, educational and social offerings.

Established by an English Royal Patent in 1708, Greater Bay Shore has steadfastly retained its unique heritage while evolving into a model American community.

Located forty-three miles east of New York City, Greater Bay Shore can be swiftly accessed by road, rail, air or water. Its  central location at the heart of Long Island’s South Shore affords its residents both the proximity to a myriad of metropolitan offerings and the pleasures of a waterfront community that proudly calls the majestic Great South Bay its backyard. Greater Bay Shore includes the picturesque mile-square Incorporated Village of Brightwaters. Bay Shore is also the gateway to the Fire Island National Seashore, a beautiful strip of land thirty-five miles long, just a short ferry ride across the bay. Encompassing over twelve square miles, Greater Bay Shore is home to more than 30,000 residents, many of whom can trace their solid community roots back to past generations. Together, with a culturally diverse blend of newer residents, Bay Shore is today, as always, a caring community united in spirit, purpose and values.

The Chamber of Commerce of Greater Bay Shore, in service since 1946, welcomes your interest in our community.
