West Babylon is part of the town of Babylon in Suffolk County, New York with a population of more than 40,000 people. In the 1800s, West Babylon was a high-end vacation destination for affluent families who would come from far and wide to enjoy Beaver Lake. Then, in the 1920s and 1930s, middle-class families began building summer bungalows that eventually became the full-fledged neighborhoods we see in West Babylon today. West Babylon is a primarily residential town that's a nice place to be a dog owner with many great outdoor spots nearby that you can enjoy with your dog. To keep your dog happy and healthy, there are also several vets in the Babylon area.
