Bay Shore is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) in the Town of Islip, Suffolk County, New York, United States. It is situated on the South Shore of Long Island, adjoining the Great South Bay. In 2008, Bay Shore celebrated the 300th anniversary of the purchase of the land from the Secatogue Native Americans. The population of the CDP was 26,337 at the time of the 2010 census.
The hamlet's name has changed several times. Early European settlers referred to the place as Penataquit and, earlier, Awixa; both names were used by the Native American Secatogue tribe. By the early 19th century it was renamed Sodom. When and why the name was changed to Sodom remains a mystery. In 1842 it was changed to Mechanicsville, then back to Penataquit in 1849. The name Penataquit proved unpopular because it was difficult to spell. The name of the post office was finally changed to Bay Shore in 1868. The land that was to become Bay Shore was purchased from the Secatogue Indians in 1708 by John Mobray, a teacher, for "several eel spears".
The median income for a household in the CDP was $50,155, and the median income for a family was $69,046 (these figures had risen to $70,140 and $80,931 respectively as of a 2007 estimate).
