If you regularly read my blog, you already know how great Port Jefferson is for planting your roots or simply moving up. However, the area is happy to have one thing more thing that many U.S. towns are currently lacking: jobs! In addition to the University, Hospitals, and Brookhaven Lab, Canon (you might have one of their cameras, scanners or printers) has moved its North and South American headquarters from Lake Success to Melville which is just a 40 minute commute from Port Jefferson. I would be happy to share with you the reasons why settling on the North Shore of Long Island will be well worth the short drive!
A regular leader in digital imaging and office solutions, Canon has made a name for itself worldwide with the other two headquarters located in Tokyo and London. Here on Long Island, we are at a great advantage with this innovative company breaking ground in our backyards.
With only three headquarters worldwide, there are bound to be many Canon employees relocating from out of state (or out of the country). Port Jefferson is the perfect spot to get settled into life on Long Island! New residents will feel right at home with the tight sense of community Port Jefferson exudes. The area has a small-town feel with the resources of a larger city (not to mention access to New York City via train or car). Worried about making the trip to work? You won’t be alone as a commuter in Port Jefferson. A notable commuter area, a lot of people travel to work and come home to enjoy a leisurely lifestyle on the water. If you have school-aged children, you’ll be thrilled to know that Port Jefferson has an excellent school system.
Now that I’ve told you how great Port Jefferson is, come take a look around and see for yourself! If you’re a new Canon employee looking to relocate to Long Island, I’m sure you’ll find that Port Jefferson is the place for you to settle down.
