Melville is a hamlet and census-designated place in the town of Huntington in Suffolk County on Long Island, New York, in the United States. As of the 2000 census, 14,533 people resided there.
 
It is directly east of the county boundary with Nassau County, New York. The Long Island Expressway (LIE) and Northern State Parkway, two of the country's busiest highways and major points of entry in and out of New York City, pass through Melville. Melville is located immediately off of Exit 49 of the LIE. New York State Route 110 runs through the center of Melville.
Melville is home to the U.S. headquarters of several national and international corporations, including Hain Celestial, Arrow Electronics, Chyron, MSC Industrial Direct, Nikon Corporation, OSI Pharmaceuticals, Allion Healthcare, the Italian-food chain Sbarro, the medical and dental supply distributor Henry Schein, Bouchard Transportation and global staffing giant Adecco (US Headquarters). In addition, significant operations of Manhattan-based Estée Lauder are conducted there. Melville is also the host of operations for many Fortune 500 companies. These headquarters and many other corporate and industrial centers are found on or near Route 110, which runs north to south through Huntington, Melville, Farmingdale, North Amityville, and Amityville.[citation needed]

Sbarro's headquarters are located in Melville.[1] Around 2002 Swiss International Air Lines's North American headquarters moved from Melville to Uniondale, Town of Hempstead. The facility, the former Swissair North American headquarter site, was completed in 1995. Swissair intended to own, instead of lease, its headquarters site. It enlisted architect Richard Meier to design the Melville facility. Melville was also the global headquarters of Gentiva Health Services from its 1999 founding until its 2006 relocation to Atlanta.

In 2010, Canon USA started construction of their new corporate headquarters on land previously occupied by a 52-acre (210,000 m2) pumpkin farm. The site is located on the South West corner of the intersection of Walt Whitman Road and the south service road of the Long Island Expressway. The current Canon USA headquarters is located in Lake Success.
 

The Long Island newspaper Newsday is published in Melville.

The independent television station WLNY-TV broadcasts from Melville.

The area was known to the native Americans as Sunsquams. In the 17th century it was known as Samuel Ketcham's Valley, named for a local resident. Afterwards it was known as Sweet Hollow. This name was replaced by Melville in school records in 1854. There is some debate as to the origin of the Melville name. It may be derived from the Latin for honey (the area had an abundance of honey bees and this may have also been the origin of the previous Sweet Hollow name). It should also be noted that the author Herman Melville was being published around this time.

A Presbyterian church was built in Melville in 1829 at the northeast corner of Old Country and Sweet Hollow Roads. In 1977 the church was moved 1-mile (1.6 km) to the West.The church was in continuous use until 1930. It reopened in 1944 for the funeral of Edward Baylis and has been in use since then.

In 1909 a trolley line to Huntington was established. This was an extension of the Huntington Trolley Spur and went as far south as Amityville and had a connection to Babylon.There were six fare zones, one of which was the Duryea Farm at Melville.The line was shut down a decade later after farmers complained that noise from the trolley frightened their animals. Buses provided transportation after the trolley line closed. The growing use of private cars also reduced demand for the trolley line.

In May of 2011, construction commenced for the replacement of the Northern State Parkway bridge over Route 110. The original bridge is 63 years old. The project was budgeted for $56,000,000 and is expected to be completed in winter of 2013 and 2014.

Long Island's tallest point is Jayne's Hill near Melville, with an elevation of 400.9 feet (122.2 m) above sea level.
