Islip (T)

New York is a state in the northeastern United States. 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.
Islip is a census-designated place and hamlet located in the Town of Islip, Suffolk County, New York, on the South Shore of Long Island. The Islip Town Hall is located at 655 Main Street in Islip.
In the early years, the town expanded slowly. The population was 20,575 at the 2000 census. In the CDP the population was spread out with 27.4 percent under the age of 18, 6.5 percent from 18 to 24, 32.6 percent from 25 to 44, 22.3 percent from 45 to 64, and 11.1 percent who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 36 years. For every 100 females there were 94.4 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 90.0 males.
As Islip approaches maturity, it remains a varied, beautiful and interesting place to live. Few suburbs encompass ocean beaches, sparkling bays, a beautiful lake, vistas of forest fields, canals and ponds, historic villages and innumerable architectural treasures.
Over the course of Islip’s heritage, it has changed from a subsistence farming economy in the early years, to a bustling fishing and tourism area in the 19th and 20th Centuries, to the bedroom community of the post World War II years, to its status today as a leader, where industry and community co-habitate, providing a great place for its more than 300,000 residents to live, work and play.

Islip 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.
