The village of Bayville is home to approximately 8,400 residents and is located in the unique and magnificent region of Long Island’s North Shore. Throughout the years, this hidden gem on Long Island Sound has served as a grazing and farming area, a significant source for sand mining, an early transportation hub, and a summer retreat for the weary traveling from neighboring communities. This relatively unchanged region remains a seaside family-oriented village providing a special neighborhood for all of its residents to enjoy. Perhaps the most recognizable symbol of the village is the bridge connecting the eastern end of Bayville to Mill Neck and the Long Island mainland. Throughout the years, the Bayville Bridge was constructed and rebuilt on four separate occasions, and through each new development, another generation of residents contributed their personal bit of heritage to the structure.
