The Vanderbilt Beach overlooks Northport Bay in Centerport, Long Island. There is beach access located close to the Vanderbilt Museum and Planetarium right off of County Road 86. The Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum is a unique combination of mansion, marine and natural history museum, planetarium and park, that is dedicated to the education and enjoyment of the people of Long Island. The 43-acre museum complex features the Gold Coast-era mansion (1910-1936), a marine museum, natural history habitats, curator's cottage, seaplane hangar, boathouse, gardens, fountains, pools, and numerous other estate features. You will also find marine and natural history specimens, house furnishings, photographs and archives. The Planetarium is temporarily closed for renovations but will re-open mid-October 2012.

SOURCE INFORMATION

Swimming advisories are available via Suffolk County Health Services hotline at : 631-852-5822

Suffolk County Health Services tests the water quality from a month prior to Memorial Day until Labor Day. Tier I beaches are tested 2-3 times per week and Tier II beaches are tested at least once per week, with more frequent testing at beaches where water quality changes often. Tier I and Tier II beaches are retested if a sample exceeds water quality standards. Additional samples are taken from Tier I and Tier II beaches prone to water quality issues from stormwater runoff after heavy rainfall. Several samples are taken from Tier I and Tier II beaches. The samples are taken at knee depth, near known and potential pollution sources and from the most popular swimming spots.
Tier III beaches are tested once a month from June 15 to Labour Day.

A marine beach is marked Green when there are equal to or less than 104 units of Enterococci per 100 ml of water and when the geometric mean of 5 samples contain 35 units / 100ml of water or less.

A freshwater beach is marked Green when single sample results are 235 units of E.coli per 100 ml of water or less and when the geometric mean of 5 samples contain less than 126 units / 100ml of water or less.

A marine beach is marked Red when a single sample exceeds 104 units of Enterococci per 100 ml of water or when the geometric mean of 5 samples contain more than 35 units / 100ml of water.

A freshwater beach is marked Red when a single sample exceeds 235 units of E.coli per 100 ml of water or when the geometric mean of 5 samples contain more than 126 units / 100ml of water .
