About Kensington

Great pictures of Old Kensington. Click Here.

The vision for the "planned colony" that was the forerunner of modern Kensington came from Charles Finlay, President of the Aetna Bank in New York and his partner E.J. Rickert. read more...

Kensington was established 100 years ago at a time when development on Long Island was just taking off. Our community has taken root and thrived ever since.  Although the trees have matured over time, and new ones have been planted, the look and feel of the Village has remained.  Whether you are a resident or a visitor, take a tour through our website and see for yourselves what a wonderful neighborhood we have. Contact us if you have questions and enjoy your visit!

Susan Lopatkin, Mayor
Incorporated Village of Kensington
