Port Jefferson is a village in the Town of Brookhaven in Suffolk County on the beautiful North Shore of Long Island. It's about 60 miles east of New York City and local legend has it that the famed pirate Captain Kidd paid Port Jefferson a visit on his way to bury treasure. Keep your eyes open! The port was a pretty important shipbuilding center in the mid-1800s and has now turned to tourism for its economic base. You may have guessed already that the town was named for Thomas Jefferson to honor him for his financial support in creating and upgrading the harbor. Port Jeff, as it's known, serves as a cultural and commercial center for the area. See more
Port Jefferson apartments with garages are sometimes more expensive than other options. However, they may make more financial sense in the long run.
Weather, break-ins, and daily struggles to find a space can take a toll financially and physically. Remember that even cities in mild climates experience issues like salt air, tornadoes, hail, falling branches from storms, and other issues.
It’s also possible to score an auto insurance reduction if you park in a garage. Ask your insurance provider about any deals or discounts that could trim money off the cost of your monthly bill.
Before signing a lease, ask the landlord or property manager about any restrictions on garage use. It’s important to know if there are enough spaces for tenants and visitors and what happens if the garage is full. If you’re moving into an apartment inside a home, ask about any conditions on its use and if storage is allowed.
