Babylon is known as the heart of it all because of its central location on Long Island’s south shore, between New York City and the Hamptons. In fact, with over 205,000 residents, one university, an airport, and a highly educated and skilled labor force, Babylon has become the economic heartbeat of Long Island.
At the Babylon IDA, we work at the intersection between local business and local government. By offering tax savings incentives and fast track permit processing for prospective and existing enterprises, we stimulate sustainable economic development and revitalization within the Town of Babylon. This growth promotes job creation, additional economic activity for local businesses, Town beautification, rising property values, and a higher quality of life within the Town – which serves all residents and businesses.
