Oyster Bay Harbor Professional Review and Guide
"Adored by Theodore Roosevelt, Oyster Bay features an abundant number of birds, gorgeous estates, and several paddling options.
Oyster Bay Harbor is located on the north shore of Long Island, approximately 20 miles east of Manhattan. Most of the harbor is located within the Oyster Bay National Wildlife Refuge, a 3,209-acre refuge and the largest in the Long Island National Wildlife Refuge Complex.
Oyster Bay is known for having the healthiest waters in Long Island Sound and is home to the popular Pine Island oysters, which have been farmed since 1887. The bay produces up to 90 percent of the oysters and 40 percent of the clams harvested in New York. Since Oyster Bay is very sheltered, it provides essential winter habitat to many types of waterfowl, including multiple varieties of diving ducks, terns, wading birds, and shorebirds."
