Overview

Islandia straddles the Long Island Expressway and is near the geographic center of Long Island. It has no central business district. It was established in 1985 after CA Technologies established its world headquarters in the community creating a high tech boom town.

The core of Islandia is a 500 home housing development built by Levitt & Sons circa 1963, and offered seven different model homes to choose from. The original Levitt home buyers were informed during pre-construction sales that their children would attend the Hauppage school district, but instead it became part of Central Islip and the Central Islip school district. The Levitt development was assigned the Central Islip ZIP code 11722 and was considered part of Central Islip until the incorporation of Islandia in 1985.

Its most notable park is Lakeland County Park which is the headwaters of the Connetquot River.
