In this year, a man named William Nicoll bought 50,000 acres from Chief Sachem Winnequaheagh of the Connetquot and named his new plantation Islip Grange, after his hometown in England. Before long, several small villages popped up in the area, including the hamlets that are now known as West Islip, Bay Shore, Oakdale, and Bayport. Each of these hamlets is a part of the present day <a href=\http://www.townofislip-ny.gov/ \>Town of Islip</a>.</p><p>, though they remain autonomous in some regards. The hamlet of Bayport is currently home to around 8,000 people, though there are around 335,000 people in all of Islip.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><h2>Enjoying the Scenery</h2><p>If you're a fan of the great outdoors, you'll want to be sure to visit <a href=\http://www.nysparks.com/parks/136/ \>Hecksher State Park</a> as soon as you get settled into your new apartment. This park is a part of the original 50,000 acres that Nicoll purchased from the Connectquot back in the 1600s, and has been kept free from development for many years. What does this mean for you? Miles of trails, acres of beautiful forests, and plenty of birds and other animals to spot. Each year, over a million people visit this park in order to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. In the summer, you can take a hike to a scenic viewpoint or lounge about on the beach (just be sure to use plenty of sunscreen). In the winter, strap on a pair of skis and blaze a trail through the woods or <a>fish in the bay</a> for fluke and striped bass. The kids will also love hanging upside-down from the monkey bars and the whole family will enjoy picnicking along the shore. Since Heckscher Park is only a few miles from Bayport, everyday really can be a day at the beach.</p><h2>Solving the Mystery</h2><p>Bayport isn't home to any criminal masterminds or private eyes but it is the setting for the famous <a>Hardy Boys</a> novels.
