Description

Sharing its name with a notorious ancient city, Babylon village has been the home harbor of Long Island baymen, a post-World War II suburban boomtown, and the birthplace of the nation's first professional black baseball team. The modern village is well known for its picturesque Argyle Park and flourishing downtown, but it was once revered as a vacation resort destination for those near and far. The community has evolved from decades of residents, visitors, and experiences that have contributed to and created the history of Babylon village, one of the oldest established communities on the South Shore of Long Island.
