Introduction to Plainedge

Plainedge is a hamlet within the Town of Oyster Bay located north of North Massapequa and west of South Farmingdale. It is 1.4 square miles in area and has a population of about 8,575 (Jan. 1999).

The community was given its name around 1663 because of its treeless landscape. During the mid-1800s, Plainedge was known to have had one of the largest turkey farms on Long Island and was nicknamed, "Turkeyville."

Cranberries were also popular in the area, as marshlands located north of Jerusalem Avenue and west of Hicksville Road provided favorable growing conditions for the crop. Today, a bustling business area is located at Route 107 and Jerusalem Avenue, and offers shopping and restaurants

The community is covered by the Plainedge School District, which also welcomes students from Levittown, Farmingdale and Bethpage. The district has a library and offers a host of sporting, academic and art programs both as part of and separate from its regular curriculum.
