A friend of mine considers Northport to be the nicest harbor on Long Island Sound. I wouldn't go that far, but I can certainly understand why he would make such a claim. It has a lot of positive attributes: a fjord-like harbor that is well protected; a walkable village ; and a waterfront park with this attractive pier.
There has been a public dock here since the early 19th century, but by 1920, it had fallen into decay along with much of the surrounding waterfront. It was at this time that the village purchased the land to form the waterfront park that exists today.
