Almost half of Farmingville's housing stock was built after 1970, reflecting substantial population growth over the past 40 years. Housing values are holding steady and a thriving local economy has been consistently attracting new residents.

Farmingville is well-suited to lovers of the outdoor life. There are many nearby parks, trails and nature preserves for those who enjoy camping and hiking. A trip to the top of the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial at Bald Hill will yield a breathtaking panoramic view of Suffolk County from its highest point. it is rumored that you can even see well into Connecticut.

Shopping is readily accessible at the malls and big box stores of nearby Centereach. The Bald Hill Cultural Center is home to the outdoor Brookhaven Amphitheater where popular bands and other recording artists regularly perform.
