The Village of The Branch is a small charming community nestled within the heart of the Township of Smithtown, located in north central Long Island, approximately 65 miles east of New York City. Take a stroll or bike ride through this quaint village where families live and play and see for yourself.


When heading north on New York State Route 111 to the main intersection of The Branch, you will enter the crossroads to other affluent North Shore communities such as Saint James, Head of the Harbor, Nissequogue, Stony Brook, Setauket, Poquott, Old Field and Port Jefferson Village. The intersection of the New York State Route 25A merges with the east-west route of New York State Route 25, also known as Main Street, Middle Country Road (to the east) and Jericho Turnpike (to the west), which stretches from Queens straight through to the Calverton-Riverhead area on the east end of Long Island.
The Branch is a small village with an Historic District comprised of historical houses dating back to the late 1600's, now converted to offices for professionals. The village officials adhere to a Circa 1850 architectural design for new commercial buildings and for renovations. Hundreds of families live in homes on heavily-treed plots along rolling hills, an ideal setting for houses ranging in value from $350,000 to $750,000.
Along the main intersection of Main Street, New York State Route 111 and New York State Route 25A lies the Smithtown Library, the United States Post Office, a house of worship, the Village Hall, assorted restaurants and various merchant services of every kind for the convenience of the population. Residents of the community enjoy using the Smithtown Landing Country Club and Golf Course, which has an 18 hole golf course, a 9 hole short course, beautiful rolling hills with a water view, a large swimming pool, a smaller children's pool, restaurant and catering facility. A permit is also available to residents that want to sun and play on nearby local beaches that lie on the southern fringe of the Long Island Sound looking to the north into the beautiful State of Connecticut.
The Mayor, Tom Keon, Trustees, participating members of the Board of Appeals and Planning Board as well as other village officials pride themselves in serving the homeowners and merchants in the area by providing personal attention combined with careful planning. The Branch is known for its high quality of life, beautiful surroundings, convenient access to shopping, parks, recreational facilities and easy access to main highways.
