Description:
Fair Harbor is a hamlet located near the western end of Fire Island. It is a part of the Town of Islip on Long Island, New York. Fair Harbor falls under the police jurisdiction of Suffolk County Marine Bureau and is protected by its own volunteer fire department, the Fair Harbor Fire Department, founded in 1931.

Fair Harbor, like most other Fire Island communities, is mainly a summer community, though a few families choose to live there year-round. Children attend the Fire Island School District in Corneille Estates until grade 6, at which point they are bussed to public schools in Bay Shore or Islip, or to one of the many private and parochial schools on the Long Island mainland for grades 7–12. The neighboring communities of Dunewood, New York and Lonelyville, to the east, rely on many of Fair Harbor's services, such as the Fire Department and the two markets.

Lifestyle

Fair Harbor is a seasonal beach community. Many of the homes have been passed down from generation to generation, while others are newly constructed. The town has a strong rental market, with houses renting for the season, month or week. Since there is limited car access to Fire Island, biking and walking is the main mode of transportation. It also has a volunteer Fire Department and EMT service, and lifeguards on the bay and beach during the summer months.
