About Our Village
The Village of Babylon incorporated in 1893. Following World War II, the area burst with activity, providing homes for returning veterans. With convenient train service to New York City, commuters, then like now, found Babylon a great place to live and raise a family.
Babylon Village today is part suburban community, part small-town, and has a well known and sough after shopping & business district. The Village is best known for its restaurants and shops, and hosts shopping events during the fall as well as a popular crafts fair.
Babylon’s 140-year stint as a hub on the Long Island Rail Road creates a wonderful economic balance between a small town, shop small mantra & a fast paced Manhattan mentality. Babylon’s location of being beach-front as well as having direct access to Manhattan yields a unique person, equal part urban and beach goer.
