According to the 2009 edition of LIPA's Long Island Population Survey, Dowling College dormitories had 477 people and SUNY Stony Brook had 9,320 people on or about January 1, 2009.

It's bad if you're a Harbour Rat.

Lynbrook, even VS dont look right.

Something doesnt add up at all with this.
I think it my be rental stock

Crooks
Idle Hour makes up a relatively small area of Oakdale IMO - won't argue it's "high end" for Suffolk in general, though. You're paying big premium for bay or canal rights in most cases. You ever see that house on the little island with the bridge across from Dowling? lol

Besides the newer stuff down by Vanderbilt's Wharf and Snapper Inn (wheee Reggae happy hours), you have that whole "artist community" thing going where it's arts and crafts type homes instead of the modern conveniences down there... So you're paying for "character", tiny rooms, etc when people want granite right about now. So even in Idle Hour itself - you don't have as much as you'd think to jack the median too high.

In the end Oakdale being Connetquot schools pulling from a large chunk up into North touching into Ronko doesn't get them into the Sayville category.

Perhaps Kid

Nice area.

I actually prefer Oakdale and Great River to Sayville.
I think all that rental stuff on Sunrise may be theirs too

I was surprised to see it where it ranked.

I agree with you on Great River with the bay access and area in general - several friends live in country village EI schools... But I think Sayville's downtown and better restaurants trumps Oakdale.

Zips and CDPs aren't always the same, right?

If the university were it's own CDP, wouldn't it be on the list or would it be omitted from being it's own spot on the list because it is a State entity and not a hamlet, village, town or something like that? If omitted from the list for that reason then wouldn't wind up in Stony Brook the hamlet?

I am getting confused!

Its right up the road.

Sometimes downtowns are too crowded.
Sayvilles car traffic is a bear

The downtown Islips are really nice too.
Been meaning to check out Tellers.

Were way OT.

I think those areas are nicer than the list.
