Long-Beach is one of the oldest communities on Long Island. It's actually a barrier island located along Long Island's south shore, and was reportedly first sighted by explorer Henry Hudson as he sailed along island in 1609. Early mapmakers dubbed the island Great Sand Beach." The town of Long Beach was founded in 1880 when the very first beach hotel was built here, and with the coming of the railroad in 1882, Long Beach was promoted as a resort community for city dwellers. Although Long Beach is geographically within the Town of Hempstead, it has its' own governing body and is an independent city of approximately 33,000 people. It has two major downtown shopping areas and homes and private docks along the bay side of the community. It also has waterfront homes located in an area called "The Canals." Long Beach has beautiful beaches and a 2 mile long boardwalk that was built in 1914, that is usually filled with joggers and people just strolling and enjoying the view. At night the boardwalk is lighted, plus there is a fishing pier and a section of the boardwalk that is set aside as a bicycle lane. Long Beach is the site of the Hempstead Town Festival by the Sea, which is usually held in September, and features a surf casting contest, kids games, food and live entertainment. The Long Beach Arts & Crafts Festival is usually held in July and has more than 200 arts and crafts vendors, ethnic foods, music and more.

Long Beach Weather & Climate

Manhattan and the surrounding area have four seasons of changeable weather. Summers are often hot and muggy and last until September. Temperatures usually soar to near 100 degrees F. for a week to ten days in mid-July to mid-August. Another uncomfortable time to visit New York City is during January and February when temps are often in the 20s and the concrete canyons of the city can turn into wind tunnels. Otherwise, the rest of the year the weather is comfortable, with March usually being the rainiest month. May offers great weather - just warm enough for walking around but cool enough to remain comfortable. Autumn has more sunshine than spring, although both are clear and bright. New York City is magical at Christmas time and the changing leaves of fall makes it a beautiful time to visit the area.
