Welcome to Flanders
Even though it may be overlooked as a drive-through on the way to the aquarium in Riverhead, Flanders has some of the most beautiful stretches of woods and bayfront areas of the East End. What it lacks in a downtown it makes up for in sunset views, and with a massive revitalization underway by Renaissance Downtowns, it is probably one of the last places to find a relatively affordable waterfront on Long Island's East End.
Things to Love About Flanders
Flanders is on the south side of the Peconic River, which is ideal for kayaking and canoeing due to its slow, easy-going currents.
The whimsical Big Duck, which used to serve as a store for ducks and eggs in the early 20th century, is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
Living in the Flanders offers residents a low-key, country feel, with local delis and cafes along Flanders Road.
