Patchogue Eye Care
Patchogue is a village located in Suffolk County, on the South Shore of Long Island, New York. It is within the Town of Brookhaven. The general border lines of Patchogue Village are Blue Point on the West, Roe Boulevard on the North, Bay Avenue on the East and the Great South Bay on the South. It is about 55 miles east of Manhattan. The village government consists of a Mayor and six Trustees. The Blue Point Brewing Company opened in Patchogue in 1998, and is the only commercial brewery on Long Island. Some people say the community was named for an Indian tribe; others say it derives from an Indian term for "turning place" or "where they divide in two," referring to two rivers. Its history dates from 1664, when Connecticut Gov. John Winthrop bought "nine necks of land" extending from Great South Bay to the middle of the Island. Some were sold to Humphrey Avery of Boston, who was in need of cash and disposed of them by lottery. In 1759, the "lot" became Patchogue and won by Leoffer d'Leofferda. The area was once a lace-manufacturing center and grew as a summer resort until the advent of the automobile. Patchogue became an incorporated village in 1893.
