That sounds like the village of Lindenhurst. Nice South Shore town.

Many New York suburbs are dense by US standards.

Town of Babylon - 1,361.00 sq mile (50 square miles)
County of Suffolk - 1,598.00 sq mile (900 square miles)

The actual density is much higher for instance because 1/3 of the town is parkland, beach or cemetery lands.

Yep, you're right. I'm actually moving to Levittown, looking forward to it I grew up in Smithtown. I love that town, but it's too far out for me. But I'm looking forward to going back to Long island; i'm getting really tired of Queens. It's like my other home here, but I just like LI more. I was in Queens as a little kid and came back a year and a half ago, but would prefer to be on the island

Probably. Have you looked up the stats for that zip. The first chart indicates it is NOT a regular part of the city. Here is the chart for population by age from City-Data itself



It is the same profile of other major university systems zip code across the country. Which is NOT a good indication of the population density of the city the university is located in regardless of how political lines are drawn. A better question for the OP would have been here is the density of my university, what is the density of your universities.

Using that for a criteria will change things quite a bit.


Population density: 10344 people per square mile - East Lansing, Michigan (Michigan State University)
Population density: 4113 people per square mile - City of East Lansing

By the location I would guess Maine, but Maine has hundreds of zip codes. Shoot, Portland itself has 9.
