East Islip

East Islip
Beginnings: For decades before Jan. 16, 1890, this small community was part of what was known as ``east of Islip.'' The citizens obviously didn't want much change: The official name bestowed on that date was East Islip. The area was part of the original 51,000-acre purchase from the Secatogues by Islip founder William Nicoll.
