Oyster Bay Home Inspections


Oyster Bay is a hamlet on the North Shore of Long Island in Nassau County in the state of New York. The community is within the Town of Oyster Bay, New York, a town which contains 18 villages and 18 hamlets. The hamlet’s area was considerably larger before several of its parts incorporated as separate villages. At least six of the 36 villages and hamlets of the Town of Oyster Bay have shores on Oyster Bay Harbor and its inlets, and many of these were previously considered part of the hamlet of Oyster Bay; three of those are now known as Mill Neck, Bayville & Centre Island. The first mention of Oyster Bay comes from Captain David Peterson de Vries, who in his Journal recalls how on June 4, 1639, he “came to anchor in Oyster Bay, which is a large bay which lies on the north side of the Great Island… There are fine oysters here, whence our nation has given it the name of Oyster Bay.”
