Home to Long Island’s eastern most river, the Peconic River, Riverhead Town serves as not only the gateway to the North Fork on land but also on its waters. Its diverse mix of the growing urbanization of the county seat with high density development and shopping centers which sit next to farmland, historic rural corridors and wetlands and marine waters draw people to Riverhead from all over. The challenge is how to manage growth and prosperity while keeping the rural charm, character and way of life which is the heart of the community.
