Massapequa

Trip Planner USA  /  New York State  /  Long Island  /  Massapequa
Massapequa is a hamlet and census-designated place in the southern part of the Town of Oyster Bay in southeastern Nassau County, New York. As of the 2010 census, the CDP had a total population of 21,685. In the 1990s the town made national headlines as the hometown of Joey Buttafuoco.HistoryA 19th-century writer identified Massapequa as one of the "13 tribes of Long Island," but additional research has shown that they were a band of Lenape, the Algonquian-speaking people who occupied the western part of the island at the time of European encounter. The bands were identified by names of the geographic areas they occupied.The Native Americans to the east spoke a different Algonquian language and were related to the Pequot people of Connecticut and southern New England, another in the large Algonquian languages family of tribes in coastal areas along the Atlantic Ocean. Major bands of Pequot in eastern Long Island were the Montaukett and Shinnecock. Today the Shinnecock Indian Nation has gained federal recognition and has a reservation on the South Shore of Long Island.GeographyMassapequa, on the South Shore of Long Island, is located at 40°40'13" North, 73°28'16" West (40.670403, -73.471150).
