    Check out the main town square. Typical quaint American town. This square was the setting for one of the scenes in the movie Sabrina (the more recent one with Harrison Ford). For an interesting juxtaposition, check out the modern, double decker trains that chug on deisel engines through the station just outside of the square.

    Seriously check out Bailey Arboretum if you are anywhere near Locust Valley. It is gorgeous. They have plants from all over the world, and it creates an interesting aura of being somewhere other than Long Island when you go there. Plus, it only costs $1 to get in there, which you can only do between April and November.

Locust Valley Off The Beaten Path

    Beaver Dam is very scenic. The side with more water is fresh water and the other side is salt water. Take Factory Pond Road or Feeks Lane off of Bayville Road to get to it. At the other end (Cleft Road) I was always told lives the former head of jukebox mafia in NY.

    Other famous people who are purported to own property within a 5 minute drive of each other include the owner of Sbarro's pizza, Michael Jackson, Billy Joel, Pat McEnroe, John Gotti Jr., and Vera Wang. Howard Stern used to live around here before his divorce as did Mrs. Deng Xiaoping before she died.

    Two interesting cemetaries in and around Locust Valley: Locust Valley cemetary (next to the elementary school) and Underhill Cemetary (halfway between Bayville Road and Beaver Dam on Factory Pond Road).

    Someone famous is buried at the Locust Valley cemetary, but I'll leave that surprise for you. The Underhills were a famous rich family in Locust Valley, but other than that, I can't remember anything of note there.
