Babylon (T)

New York is a state in the northeastern United States. It is called New York State when there is need to distinguish it from New York City. Because a significant majority of the population is concentrated in the southern portion around New York City, the state is often regionalized into Upstate and Downstate. New York is the home of Ellis Island, where many immigrants in the early 20th century arrived in the United States.
The town of Babylon is located in southwestern Suffolk County, New York, USA. As of the 2000 census, the town population was 211,792. The town was named after the ancient city in the Middle East. There is also a Village of Babylon located within in the town. The west town line is the border of Nassau County, New York, and the south town line is the Atlantic Ocean. Part of the Great South Bay and Fire Island are in the southern part of the town. Steve Bellone is the Babylon town supervisor. The region was once called Huntington South. The town was formed in 1872 by a partition of the Town of Huntington.
Babylon is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in New York worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place leaves a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justifies the proud cultural tradition of New York.
