CSHL’s main campus spans approximately 120 acres along the western shore of beautiful Cold Spring Harbor on the north shore of Long Island. We are located 35 miles east of New York City. Historic architecture, sweeping vistas of the harbor, magnificent trees and flowers, and intriguing art and sculpture make our campus unique.

Within five miles of the main campus are the 45-acre Banbury Conference Center, the 12-acre Uplands Farm Agricultural Field Station, the Genome Center in Woodbury, and the Dolan DNA Learning Center in the village of Cold Spring Harbor.

Researchers visiting, working and living here describe CSHL as a sanctuary where they can pursue cutting-edge science amid nature’s timeless beauty. The general public can also experience knowledge and nature at CSHL by taking a tour or participating in our concert & lecture programs.
