With a rich heritage and long history, Cold Spring Harbor is a fantastic village in which to live on the North Shore of Long Island. Initially settled in the seventeenth century, the village encompasses a charming historic main street which affords an old-time ambiance despite its modern conveniences. Along its historic main you will find shopping, services, and restaurants. Also within the village, you’ll find the Whaling Museum, a result of the original settlements having relied heavily on that industry. The museum attracts many visitors throughout the tourist season during the warm summer months.
The west edge of Cold Spring Harbor lies along the shore of the actual harbor for which it is named. The harbor is a wide inlet providing access to Oyster Bay which sits opposite Cold Spring Harbor.

It also encompasses a forty-acre state park which provides gorgeous water views, miles of hiking trails in the summer, and opportunities for cross-country skiing in the winter.
