Overview

Islandia straddles the Long Island Expressway and is near the geographic center of Long Island. It has no central business district, although it is home to the Islandia Center, which has a Walmart and Dave & Buster's. It was established in 1985 after CA Technologies established its world headquarters in Hauppauge and trying to capture the Hauppauge School District, in the area some folks considered to be South Hauppauge, however there was never a South Hauppauge, and Islandia became its own incorporated Village in 1985.

The core of Islandia is a 500-home housing development built by Levitt & Sons circa 1963, which offered seven different model homes to choose from. The original Levitt home buyers were informed during pre-construction sales that their children should attend the Hauppauge school district, but instead it became part of the Central Islip school district. The Levitt development was assigned the Central Islip ZIP code 11722 and was considered part of Central Islip until the incorporation of Islandia in 1985.

Its most notable park is Lakeland County Park, which is the headwaters of the Connetquot River.
