Living in an apartment doesn't mean you have to sacrifice the ability to see everything Long Island, Brooklyn and Queens has to offer! If you love quaint villages, visiting historic sites and easy access to travel…why not consider these convenient luxury apartment locations below.

The Village Of PatchogueVillage of Patchouge Seal

The Village of Patchogue was incorporated in the year 1893. Patchogue has a natural riverfront and harbor that the village has utilized for over 100 years! But to apartment dwellers in 2018, Patchogue is a growing metropolis chock-full of restaurants, breweries, cafes, annual events, live music and so much more! Patchogue is also blessed with many historic sites; one example is the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts which first opened its doors in 1923. The theatre has gone through numerous renovations, but in the mid 1990’s it was completely refurbished to the gem that it is today. In addition, travel to Fire Island’s Davis Park can be easily accessed from the Davis Park Ferry Company. A short nine-minute stroll from Heatherwood House at Patchogue gives residents access to everything Patchogue has to offer.


Brooklyn BreweryNamed after the Dutch city of “Breukelen” (and later dubbed Kings County), Brooklyn stands as the most populous borough in New York City with over two-million residents! Throughout its storied history one thing has always remained: Brooklyn is a place anyone can call home! Urbanization has made the neighborhoods of Brooklyn a dynamic and diverse area filled with countless food choices, deep cultural roots, eclectic art spaces and live music venues. A nomadic borough, all of these options are easily accessible from two luxury apartment locations in the neighborhood of Williamsburg. Plus, there are parks, community pools, museums, amusement parks, beach resorts, botanical gardens, public zoo, as well as some of New York’s best educational institutions. Did we mention the pizza?

The Village of Port Jefferson

The Village of Port Jefferson is one of the oldest incorporated village’s on Long Island’s north shore. Port Jefferson was first settled in the 17th century and remained a rural community until its development as an active shipbuilding center in the mid-19th century. Today the “port” remains active with two terminals and three commercial ferry lines that run between Long Island and Bridgeport Connecticut. But Port Jefferson is more than just a travel hub; it’s full of tradition as well. There is an annual boat race known as the “Village Cup Regatta” and (held every winter since 1996) is the “Port Jefferson Village Dickens Festival.” Port Jefferson is also home to “Theatre Three,” a non-profit theatre company founded in 1969. Each year Theatre Three stages four musicals and two plays. The Village also hosts an annual outdoor concert series and film screenings. A plethora of Zagat rated restaurants dot the “main strip” offering first class dining and nightlife. What’s more? If you’re searching for an apartment Heatherwood House at Port Jefferson places residents right within walking distance of all this historic village has to offer.

Oyster Bay

Sagamore HillIf you like history, museums, parks and the quiet life…than Oyster Bay is for you! Oyster Bay is a “hamlet” on the north shore of Long Island that lies within the town of Oyster Bay. Near this hamlet, in the village of Cove Neck is “Sagamore Hill” the former residence and (summer White House) of Theodore Roosevelt! A short ten-minute car ride from Heatherwood’s Norwich Gate Luxury Apartments is the “Sagamore Hill Historic Site,” the “Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park,” the “Planting Fields Arboretum,” and just a bit further is the Oyster Bay “National Wildlife Refuge.” We haven’t even mentioned the tons of shopping and outdoor events that take place annually. (This year marks The 35th Annual Oyster Bay “Oyster Festival,” a Long Island favorite). There are also large community playgrounds for children and organized sports as well as boat basins for all you seafaring folk.



Queens was established on January 1, 1898 and is the largest of the five boroughs of New York City. It is geographically adjacent to the borough of Brooklyn and located at the southwestern end of Long Island. Apartment seekers in the area of Long Island City Queens are afforded access to tons of culture, shopping, dining, travel options, and nightlife! A short two minute walk from 27 on 27th and Tower 28 puts residents at the doorstep of the [101 year old] Queensboro Plaza. The plaza provides residents easy access to rail and bus lines that travel to points all across Queens to Manhattan. There are also unique historic sites and cultural venues–some that are world renowned! A quick list includes; the Museum of Modern Art’s “MoMA PS1,” sporting venues (“Citifield“ and the “Billie Jean Tennis Center”), two airports (“JFK International” and “LaGuardia”), historic bridges and tunnels (“Queensboro Bridge”), parks (“McCarren” and “John F. Murray” Park), world class dining and so much more…all of this is at your feet in Queens!
