The Town of Babylon is located in southwestern Suffolk County, New York, USA . There is also a Village of Babylon located within the town. The west town line is the border of Nassau County , New York, and the south town line is the Atlantic Ocean. Part of the Great South Bay, Jones Beach Island , and Fire Island are in the southern part of the town. The region was once called Huntington South. Nathaniel Conklin moved his family to the area, eventually calling it a "new Babylon", naming it after the ancient town of Babylon around 1803. The town was officially formed in 1872 by a partition of the Town of Huntington.

Weston is a town in Fairfield County, Weston's first English settlers in the early 1700s were mostly farmers living to the southeast in the Town of Fairfield, the boundaries of which extended to Weston until the late eighteenth century. In 1787, the North Fairfield parish was created in the area now occupied by the towns of Weston and Easton. In 1845, Northfairfield was split into the two towns and Weston was created

Smithville is a town in Chenango County.

Chenango County is a county located in the U.S. of New York. Its name is from an Oneida word meaning "large bull-thistle." Its county seat is Norwich. When counties were established in New York State in 1683, the present Chenango County was part of Albany County. This was an enormous county, including the northern part of New York State as well as all of the present State of Vermont and, in theory, extending westward to the Pacific Ocean. This county was reduced in size on July 3, 1766, by the creation of Cumberland County, and further on March 16, 1770, by the creation of Gloucester County, both containing territory now in Vermont.
