One of the many highlights of our area is Patchogue Village. It is a real old-fashioned downtown, complete with a variety of shops and restaurants. In the heart of the village is the Patchogue Theatre. This 1,200-seat theater dates back to the 1920s when it was originally used as a vaudeville house. It was completely renovated back in 2000 and is currently one of the finest performing arts centers on Long Island. We are also located nearby the lovely villages of Bellport and Sayville.
