Isthmus Be My Lucky Day: The Village of Asharoken is located on the Long Island Sound in Northwest Suffolk County, New York. Asharoken is one of five incorporated villages within the Town of Huntington, NY.

Physically, Asharoken is an isthmus connecting the Village of Northport on the 'mainland' of Long Island to Eaton's Neck; much of it along the shores of the Long Island Sound. It is located at: 40°56'15"N73°23'0"W.

As of the 2010 Census, there are 654 people residing in the Village (up 5% from the 2000 Census), and 302 households. It has a total area of 6.5 miles (17km), of which 1.4 square miles (3.6km) are land.

Early History: The Matinecock Indians were one of the thirteen original Native American tribes of Long Island. They were the original inhabitants of the areas now known as Asharoken and Northport. The Matinecocks called this land "Opcathontyche", meaning "wading place creek". Though Dutch colonists were the first to show interest, the lands were eventually sold to three Englishmen in 1656 by Chief Asharoken, head of the Matinecocks.

Modern Beginnings: Around the turn of the Twentieth Century, William Codling, a Northport lawyer and one of the largest landowners in the county, began to market a development he called Asharoken Beach. Codling himself actually lived in the model house. By 1915, Asharoken Beach had developed into a summer resort for upperclass families. In 1925, in order to increase control over roads and beaches, Asharoken property owners formed an incorporated village.
