The Secatogue Indians named the central portion of Long Island winnecomac, meaning "Pleasant lands". I find Commack very pleasant indeed. The motto for the Commack schools is "a very fine place".

The lands in and around Commack were purchased from various Indian tribes starting in the 1650s. Two houses dating back to the 1600s are still standing today, one of them on a working farm located in a town park, Hoyt Farm. We go there often to play and feed the farm animals.

One of the nicest things about Commack is its abundance of parks. Almost anywhere in the town of Commack is within a mile or so of a park or playground.

There is now a shopping center about a mile from my house where used to stand the Long Island Arena. It was home to the (then NY) Nets in their second season.

Commack has a White Castle restaurant, which is unusual in that most White Castles are in neighborhoods with a much lower median income. It's also quite unusual for having a motorized overhead conveyer at its drive-thru so that you order and receive your food on the side facing away from the restaurant. I suspect the design was intended to make it impossible to rob the drive-thru. I cannot imagine why they felt it necessary, though.

The Commack Motor Inn (just walking distance from my house) was made iconic in the 80s for its radio and TV ads as an 'afternoon getaway'. It's the quintessential "no tell motel".

And no, I've never been there, though I've tried get my wife to go if only to say we've been.

The one (and only) rumor I've ever heard about Commack (and I've heard it multiple times) is that there's a swingers club in the shopping center across the street from the Commack Motor Inn. Swingers and Motels - such sordid suburbia!

Don't forget, Commack's most famous alumni is Rosi O'Donnel, who graduated from Commack High School.
