(YFB-1227: t. 135; 1. 99'9"; b. 23'3';; dr. 3'; s. 11 k.)

Patchogue (YFB-1227), a wooden hull ferry built by Robert Jacob City Island, N.Y., in 1912, was purchased by the Navy from the Boston, Nahant and Pines S.S. Co.; delivered 29 September 1917; and placed in service at New London, Conn.

Assigned to the 3rd Naval District, Patchogue operated as a ferry at the New London Submarine Base until transferred to the 4th Naval District in June 1921. Placed out of service the following year, she was sold, 16 June 1922, to Charles Carr, Keansburg, N.J.

USS Patchogue (YFB-1227) -->

The first USS Patchogue (ID-1227), later YFB-1227, was a United States Navy ferry in service from 1917 to 1922.

Patchogue was built in 1912 as a commercial wooden-hulled steam ferry of the same name by Robert Jacobs at City Island in the Bronx, New York. In 1917, the U.S. Navy purchased her from the Boston, Nahant and Pines Steamship Company for use during World War I. Delivered to the Navy on 29 September 1917 and assigned the naval registry identification number 1227, she entered service as USS Patchogue (ID-1227).

Assigned to the 3rd Naval District, Patchogue operated as a ferry at Submarine Base New London in New London, Connecticut. When the U.S. Navy adopted its modern hull number system on 17 July 1920, Patchogue was classified as a "ferryboat" (YFB) and redesignated YFB-1227. In June 1921, she was transferred to the 4th Naval District for service in the Delaware River-Delaware Bay area.

Placed out of service in 1922, Patchogue was sold to Charles Carr of Keansburg, New Jersey, on 16 June 1922.

The property is located on more than a half-acre at the corner of West Main Street and Holbrook Road, across from the Anheuser-Busch-owned Blue Point Brewery.

"Once we nailed down the uses that the village would support and advised the seller on the highest price and best use in order to get to a closing, finding a developer was not difficult," Five Point Real Estate Managing Partner Guy Canzoneri, said. "There was a lot of interest in the location from numerous developers."

Patchogue: Future, Present and Past

Patchogue is a community on the move. Even if you have yet to visit, you’ve probably heard this expression from someone or from somewhere, recently.

To many, Patchogue is a new phenomena, a community that came out of nowhere to become Long Island’s most talked about “hot spot.” New businesses, surrounded by new living opportunities, seem to pop up daily unique dining experiences enhance long-established retail landmarks arts in all media thrive to the beat of Long Island’s best local music and street festivals—all made vibrant by the influx of young adults comingling with long-time locals. Patchogue has become one of the most culturally diverse, prospering communities this side of the East River.

The present state of Patchogue does predict an exciting future. While recent memory recalls a time of relatively brief stagnation, most may not remember Patchogue’s rich past as a leader in business for the northeast.

A community with roots dating back to the 1750s, Patchogue led Long Island into the industrial age, dotted with mills powered by the many local streams that collectively gave Patchogue it’s Native American name. A true maritime community, Patchogue was an integral part of our region’s shellfishing and boat building industries.

Nestled near a world renowned metropolis, as the 19th turned into the 20th century, Patchogue became a vanguard resort town with more than a dozen hotels introducing newcomers to Long Island’s unique southern shoreline at a time when the Hamptons and Fire Island were an unknown wilderness. By the 1950s, and before the advent of the strip mall, Patchogue as a Village was known as the region’s largest business district, servicing the many surrounding and growing communities of Brookhaven Town.

And now, we have entered a new era as a sought after modern residential and recreation center at a time when the walkable downtown experience is desirable once again.

As the 20th century has moved well into the 21st, it is not at all ironic that local community officials are contemplating establishing downtown tourist lodging as the next logical step to sustain our current prosperity for decades to come. Patchogue in the present is looking to the future with an eye on the past.

Whether it’s work, live or play, we invite you to be part of our new era. One thing that never changes is that Patchogue welcomes all.

About Us

For more than 90 years, the Village of Patchogue has had a stage at the center of its community - the historic Patchogue Theatre venue that originally opened as Ward & Glynne’s Theater in 1923. In its day, Patchogue Theatre attracted first-run feature films, Broadway productions, silent films, the very best in burlesque, vaudeville and live music performances with acts such as John Philip Sousa and Rose's Royal Midgets. During Patchogue Theatre's early years, the price of admission only cost 40 cents for adults and half that price for children. Glynne operated the Theatre until the Great Depression, when it was purchased by Prudential Playhouses, Inc. Not long after, the days of vaudeville had come to a close, but an evolving film industry and updated sound equipment helped maintain the Theatre as a major venue for first-run films on Long Island, while also serving as a community center for bingo, sing-alongs and other activities.

After a fire hit the Theatre Lobby in 1958, the Theatre was redecorated and designed in a simple and austere manner, with much of the ornate decor simply covered up by plywood, drywall and wallpaper. Patchogue Theatre continued to operate solely as a movie house, and in 1982, the ground floor was divided into two theater screens with the addition of a ceiling to extend the balcony level for a third screen. Essentially, this turned the Theatre into a "triplex," which it continued to operate as until 1987 when the building was closed. The combination of both an economic recession and the opening of a 12 screen multiplex theater nearby no longer allowed Patchogue Theatre to be profitable as a movie house. It stood empty for eight years, and an investigation of the building by village officials and business leaders in October 1994 found that much of the original decor had been preserved under the drywalls, wallpaper and plywood that was installed in the late 1950s.

In 1996, three local businessmen came up with the initial funds to purchase the Theatre while the Incorporated Village of Patchogue applied for grants to renovate and restore the venue to its former glory. The Theatre's interior was restored to its 1923 grandeur in several phases and Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts (PTPA) opened for business with its first performance in December of 1998.

Although the Village of Patchogue owns the historic Patchogue Theatre venue, the staff and volunteers of Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts manage the Theatre, under the leadership of a volunteer board of directors, through a community-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts organization known as the Patchogue Village Center for the Performing Arts. PTPA leases the building from The Village of Patchogue and covers all of the costs of operating the building, including programming, without any taxpayer subsidies.

Since 2004, Patchogue Theatre has maintained a state-of-the-art world-class sound system and Broadway caliber lighting & rigging. New, more spacious seating with better sightlines was installed by McHugh Institutional Furnishings in the winter of 2016. The new seats made their debut that spring at Patchogue Theatre’s first show back on April 2 featuring The Chapin Family.

There are now 854 orchestra seats and 252 balcony seats bringing Patchogue Theatre's total number of seats to 1,106, including the handicap-accessible seating throughout the Orchestra level. This allows Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts to remain the Largest Theatre in Suffolk County.

Patchogue has been a destination of sorts since 1869, when the final stretch of South Side Railroad tracks were laid from Sayville and hotels and boarding houses sprang up to handle New York City residents looking to beat the heat.

The tourist boom went bust with Wall Street in 1929, however, and Patchogue retooled itself as a regional shopping destination, with scores of busy shops and restaurants complementing its traditional textile, paper and lumber industries. The malls killed that iteration of Patchogue in the 1960s, and the village went into decay for the next 30 years, cementing its reputation as the spot along Montauk Highway where travelers pressed a little heavier on the gas pedal.

The village’s current rebirth began in the late 1990s, when government, business and varied economic development agencies committed to a sustained program of renewal. Since then, the village’s acclaimed 1920s theater has been reclaimed, hundreds of new apartments have been built and downtown business has returned to levels of activity not seen since the 1950s.

If you’re spending the day or just passing through, you can’t go wrong with the suggestions that follow.

Ferry to paradise

It’s true, one of the village’s main draws are its ferries to Fire Island, with ships departing daily from its Davis Park Ferry Terminal (Sandspit Marina, 80 Brightwood Street, 631-475-1665, and, historically, its Watch Hill Ferry Terminal (160 West Avenue, 631-475-1665, Fire Island’s Watch Hill Marina, however, is currently closed for repairs by the National Park Service, and will reopen for the 2018 season, along with corresponding ferry service. The Davis Park ferry takes beachgoers to its namesake on Fire Island, as well as Leja Beach and Ocean Ridge. Check the website for the latest schedule.

Patchogue’s got talent

A focal point of Patchogue’s downtown is the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts (71 E. Main Street, 631-207-1300,, a beautifully restored 1,104-seat, venue originally opened in 1923 as Ward & Glynne’s Theatre. As majestic today as ever, the theater, now owned by the village, is the largest of its kind in Suffolk County, and offers a busy slate of musicians, comedians, plays and more. Spacious seating upgrades installed in 2016 only further improved an already fabulous facility.

If you prefer your entertainment a bit louder and rowdier, Patchogue’s 89 North (89 N. Ocean Avenue, 631-730-8992, is the village’s current contribution to LI’s proud rock club lineage, singularly so since the sudden closing of The Emporium in May. At 89 North, the venue pairs its world-class sound, lighting and staging with a well-positioned bar and an upper seating area with table service. Whether you’re watching a local band or a national touring artist, every show here is an event.

A foodie’s fantasy

Patchogue has quietly become one of Long Island’s top destinations for dining, from posh, big-ticket eateries to authentic, roll-up-your-sleeves street food. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re craving the smoky goodness of BBQ mecca Bobbique (70 W. Main Street, 631-447-7744,, the delicate, mouthwatering sushi and Japanese fare at 360 Taiko Sushi & Lounge (47 S. Ocean Avenue, 631-207-6888,, the down-home pub grub at Reese’s 1900 (70 N. Ocean Avenue, 631-289-1900) or a breakfast bonanza at Toast Coffeehouse (46 E. Main Street, 631-654-7091,

We’d also be remiss not to mention the waterfront surf & turf mastery of Oar Steak & Seafood Grill (264 West Avenue, 631-207-1953,, the bold Caribbean flavors of Rhum (13 E. Main Street, 631-569-5944, and PeraBell Food Bar (69 E. Main Street, 631-447-7766,, which serves impressive, global-inspired cuisine in a casual pub setting.

Night life: Live and liquid

In addition to its vast array of top-rate restaurants, Patchogue offers several hybrid dining/brewpub/live venue locations that are seemingly always happening. One can’t-miss spot for dinner, drinks and live music is also one of Patchogue’s most iconic businesses: Blue Point Brewing Company (161 River Avenue, 631-475-6944,, soon to be celebrating its 20th anniversary. Long Island’s lone commercial brewery and home of its famous Toasted Lager (among a growing array of other varieties), Blue Point’s tasting room can get a little packed with beer-ficionados, but you’ll thank yourself for muscling your way to the taps, especially since you get three 5 oz. samples just for stopping in. Cramped quarters will no longer be an issue in early 2018, when Blue Point opens its expanded new facility on the corner of West Main Street and Holbrook Road, on the current Briarcliffe College campus.

Patchogue’s beer-topia also includes The Tap Room (114 W. Main Street, 631-569-5577,, an upscale brewpub renowned for its wide beverage selection and ultra-tasty burgers. (The mussels are also a local favorite.) Opened in 2011, the spot is considered one of the anchors of Patchogue’s downtown revival. Specials include $4 Long Island beers on Monday nights, as well as happy hour Monday to Friday from 3 pm to 7 pm, featuring $4 drafts and wine, and $5 mussels, served one of five different styles. The dizzying beer selection is regularly updated online, in case you need to strategically plan in advance.

Another sure-fire pick, great for a leisurely lunch or relaxing waterside dinner, is Harbor Crab Co. ( 116 Division Street, 631-687-2722,, a sprawling two-story boat/building berthed on the Patchogue River. Tourists and locals alike flock here for the fresh seafood and cozy ambiance, or to take in the nightly live music from one of the restaurant’s two vibrant bars.

And if you’ve got the itch for a tropical waterfront oasis, head over to Leeward Cove Marina (327 River Avenue, 631-654-3106,, home to Dublin Deck Tiki Bar & Grill (631-207-0370, Amid the ever-flowing food and drinks Dublin also presents live music daily on its outdoor stages, including a Calypso steel drum band on Sundays and live reggae on Tuesdays. Popular daily food specials include $6 Build-A-Burger Tuesdays and the Thursday Lobster Bake Luau. The adjoining marina also offers a host of paddle board, boat and water sport rentals if you can pry yourself away from the Deck.

Shop, shoot and roll

If your idea of fun involves more than raising a pint of Blue Point lager, the whole family can try their hand with a bow and arrow at Smith Point Archery (315 Main Street, 631-289-3399,, a full-service archery pro shop, school and indoor range. (There’s also a new crossbow range, for those would-be Daryl Dixons.) Don’t worry if you don’t travel around with your bow you can rent one for $25, which includes shooting for the day. The range/store is open from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.

A less lethal, but equally enjoyable option is to bowl a few frames at Bowl Long Island at Patchogue (138 West Avenue, 631-475-5164,, especially on those rainy afternoons when you’re not lounging by the water. And for evening action, the bowling alley holds a “Dollarmania” special every Sunday night from 6 p.m. until close, with each game costing just $1 per person ($5 cover, $1 shoe rental) plus $2 Miller Lites and $1 pretzels. There’s also unlimited bowling for $10 per person (shoes included) every Wednesday and Thursday from 9 p.m. to close.

The history minded can explore what’s left of Patchogue’s proud past via a walking tour, including such oddities as the former New York Telephone Co.’s switchboard operations, the Clinton Roller Skating Rink and the site of the Leroy Thurber Bottling Works, where ginger ale, sarsaparilla and soda were packaged for the hotels. The Thurber guarantee: “No dirt.” Go to for a PDF guide or an audio tour you can download to your device.

Too late for this year, but those who like to walk should pencil in next year’s Alive After Five program, during July and August, when large swaths of downtown are turned into one giant street festival.

Finally, if you’re looking for something special to remember your time in Patchogue, a favorite among shoppers is The Amazing Olive (35 E. Main Street, 631-307-9092,, a well-stocked local source for the finest extra virgin olive oils, as well as vinegars, herbs, salts, rubs and seasonings. At any given time you can stop in and sample more than 50 award-winning oils, selected each year from competitions like the New York International Olive Oil Competition, Los Angeles International Olive Oil Competition, Yolo County Fair Olive Oil Competition, Napa Valley Fair Olive Oil Competition and the Central Coast Olive Oil Competition.

The shop even holds private tasting parties Monday through Thursday after closing, complete with appetizers, a balsamic-inspired drink and dessert for each guest ($20 per person, six to 14 adults). After the tasting you get the entire store to yourself to browse and buy, plus a free sample bottle of oil to take home.

By 1926, Patchogue had grown into a population of 10,000, with over 250 stores and a multitude of new homes. The community boasted a modern and efficient fire department, and electricity, water, and gas were provided by plants with impeccable service records. The efforts and cooperation of the Patchogue Fire and Police Departments made it a safe haven for its residents and a town that people loved to call home. With generous contributions from the personal collections of local residents, author and historian Hans Henke once again brings to life the history of Patchogue. Whether it was the summer splendor enjoyed by vacationing New Yorkers or the year-round comfort and security that attracted its inhabitants, Patchogue offered something for everyone.

Craft Beer and Patchogue History

Walk down Blood Hill and grab a pint of Long Ireland Summer Ale. Stop at Haven's General Store for a cold Nitro Stout. Stroll across Slippery Lane and sip a pint of Toasted Lager at Ruland's Funeral Parlor.

Confused? Join us next Saturday the 17th at 2pm, for our 3rd Annual Patchogue History Crawl and you could learn a thing or two about our village's rich past. not to mention the delicious craft beer you'll be savoring as we walk (crawl) through three centuries of Patchogue history.

This is a mixture of a pub crawl and a historic walk. We will be visiting four of Patchogue's finest pubs, bars and breweries, and filling in the gaps with local history, folklore, legends and anecdotes.

Historically, any small town worth its' salt had a brewery. Prohibition nearly destroyed this great tradition, and only in recent years has the craft industry regained momentum. Keeping this in mind, the marriage between a local history walk and a pub crawl seems completely natural. To understand one's town, the people must drink the beer that it serves.

Our neighborhood has put itself on the map with spectacular breweries like Blue Point and the Brickhouse. And thanks to establishments like Hoptron Brewtique, Patchogue has also become a destination town for beer enthusiasts. The village is in the midst of a renaissance. And as more businesses open along a once-desolate Main Street, it is becoming clear that this community is growing.

And what good is a community if it cannot draw upon it's past? History gives us a sense of place. It tethers us to the ground and strengthens the bonds of community. As the village continues to rise and reclaim her place as the "Queen City of the South Shore," it is important that we acknowledge the past and honor the people and events that brought us to this point.

Why not have some great beers along the way?
