North Great River

Beginnings: This small residential community has its roots in the 1840s, when Erastus Youngs and his family began building and repairing boats on the west shore of the Connetquot River near Great South Bay. With hardly anyone else around, the place was called Youngsport for 30 years. Alva Vanderbilt, the Oakdale socialite, bought the Youngs property later and gave it to a Brooklyn church, which used it as a summer camp for city children.
