Medford
Some funny things have happened in Medford. In 1907, the Long Island Railroad created the Medford Prosperity Farm -- an undertaking to demonstrate that things could grow in the flat wilderness that is the Long Island Central Pine Barrens. President Theodore Roosevelt decided to visit the Prosperity Farm, but as he drove between Medford and Wading River, his car got stuck in the mud. To get out, President Roosevelt was said to have taken a "flying leap!"

Medford, NY is a nice suburban town located in Long Island. The town itself is actually a part of a bigger town -- Brookhaven -- but Medford has its own characteristics, personality, and neighborhoods. Medford became known when it became a stop on the Long Island Railroad. That was in 1843. The town then was not much but a bunch of flat land and tress. However, today, a thriving community has been built -- one where people live to commute into the big city nearby (New York City!) and also the Hamptons -- but also where people live to work, play, get to know their neighbors, and find a safe and peaceful home. Moving to Medford offers great, affordable suburban living with awesome access to some of the Northeast's very best amenities.

The Neighborhoods

Town Center: The town center of Medford, geographically, is in the center of town. This is the place where you'll find most of Medford's businesses, restaurants and entertainment options. This is where the most affordable housing can be found in the city. The crime rate is a bit higher here than the rest of safe and somewhat sleepy Medford, but the payoff might be worth it for what you save in rent.

Horseblock Road: Horseblock Road is the northernmost area in Medford. The homes there are pricier than in the town center, but it's an affordable area nonetheless. The area is green and peaceful. It's home to Eagle Estates and the small airport, Coram airport.

Southern Medford: Southern Medford is by far the nicest and most upscale part of town. Here you can find the biggest houses and priciest places in the city. If you want nice living and luxurious homes, this is the place to look for it. Southern Medford has more attractions than just homes, too. It also has the lovely Twelve Pines Park.

If you're thinking about moving to Medford, it might be smart to conduct your search in the spring or fall. Winters can be brutal in the northeast, and summers are very hot (but bearable). If you have to conduct your search during the winter, be sure to bring a big heavy coat!

Living in Medford

Let's face it -- a lot of people that live in Medford commute somewhere else. That's because it's a small town with not too much going on there. (It's always been that way; legend has it that when the town was first incorporated, Medford residents built a fake factory near the Long Island Railroad Tracks and burned tar paper when trains went by to trick people into thinking there was town and industry there.) However, the town is safe and suburban, and it's a great, affordable place to call home if you want to go in and out of the big city nearby -- New York!

Obviously, New York has every amenity and attraction you could ever imagine. There's world class arts in town. For fine art lovers, there's museums like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Guggenheim. For lovers of theater, there's Broadway! As well as a thriving Off-Broadway and downtown theater scene. If you love to eat, New York is home to some of the best restaurants in the entire world. And the whole city is packed full of nightlife; there are more bars than a person could visit in a lifetime!

But people don't only commute out to New York City if they live in Medford. Many make the drive out to the Hamptons, particularly during the warm summer months. The Hamptons offer world-class, luxurious beaches and awesome restaurants and attractions, with some of the classiest people around. If you ever get bored living in Medford, it's just a short drive out to the Hamptons where you can quickly be entertained.

You don't have to leave town in Medford, though, to have fun. The town has plenty to do to keep residents entertained and happy. One great aspect of Medford is its parks. Twelve Pines Park and Granny Road Park are popular places in town to take dogs, play sports, have a picnic or just spend time in the outdoors.

The town also has attractions built solely for entertainment. One of these is Country Fair Entertainment Park. The park is home to tons of fun activities -- like GoKarts, batting cages, miniature golf, driving ranges, laser tag and more! It's also home to Boomers Parks. Boomers Bedforda also contains Go karts, miniature golf, bumper boats. kiddie rides, a game room and much more! Live in Bedford to commute or to get some peace and quiet, but there'll be plenty to do when you decide spur of the moment you want some more action!

(It's always been that way; legend has it that when the town was first incorporated, Medford residents built a fake factory near the Long Island Railroad Tracks and burned tar paper when trains went by to trick people into thinking there was town and industry there.)
