Farmingdale is a small incorporated village on Long Island. It is part of the town of Oyster Bay in Nassau County, New York on the eastern edge of the Hempstead plains. It has seven neighborhoods and is the 216th largest community in the state. The village is home to the State University of New York at Farmingdale. It is a predominantly white-collar community where over 85% of the workforce have white-collar positions. Much of the workforce is employed outside the community so commuting is quite common. Thankfully, there is public transportation and commuter trains are the most popular option. It is an upper-middle income community in comparison to state economic standards and wealthy in comparison to federal standards. Over 25% of adults in Farmingdale have four-year degrees or more, which is well above the national average. It is somewhat ethnically and racially diverse and over 20% of all residents were born outside the U.S. English remains the primary language though many residents also speak Spanish, Italian or Chinese. The village has both a general aviation airport and a station of the Long Island Railroad to ease travel concerns.
One of the first settlers was Thomas Powell. Powell purchased about 15 square miles of land from the Massapequa people in 1695. The land was divided among his children and agriculture became the first industry in the area. The area remained agricultural and largely undeveloped until Ambrose George opened a general store in the hamlet of Hardscrabble in 1841. George then purchased several acres of land and renamed the hamlet Farmingdale and began development. First, George divided the land into lots and laid out streets. The settlement soon took off and in a few decades Farmingdale was home to as many as six pickle factories, as well as a brickwork business, lumber yards and more. The village was incorporated in 1904. After WWII, industries and aircraft companies moved in. Industrialization brought a population boom which led to a building boom. These booms created the community we know today.
