Huntington Harbor has a rich history. Back in the 1860s, it was the town’s center of transportation and commerce. Before the railroad, it took several days to travel to New York by land so local merchants would take to the harbor, traveling by boat to carry their goods into the city. Today the harbor provides protection for many boats and offers amenities to local boaters, fishermen, and families. It has become a site of new exciting development and features several premier restaurants, shops, and attractions.
