Hi people, I will live on long island for the next two years. I search alot but I couldn't decide on which city that I will settle down. Everbody says that long island is a boring place. I am single, 30 years old male, and I don't want to be bored. So where do you suggest? and which city is convenient for using public transportation to go to the manhattan?

The LIRR is good for heading into the city so there are endless choices. I would stick to the western part of suffolk county or anywhere in nassau if you are looking to go into the city frequently. Otherwise Brooklyn and Queens are also good choices.

Huntington, Babylon Village, Rockville Centre or Long Beach. If your willing to venture into Queens.. Astoria, or Long Island City. I do the reverse commute from Astoria to the Rockville Centre area and its takes me about the same time to get to work when I was living in Hicksville.

Theres much more going on for the younger crowd in Queens or Brooklyn then LI and you can get into the Manhattan for $2.50 and a 10 minute subway ride.

I second Huntington.

It is important to know that there are 3 "Huntingtons" (from smallest to largest, in order of acreage):

1. There is the Hamlet of Huntington (whose "downtown" commercial district is colloquially referred to as Huntington Village);

2. There is the "Huntington, NY 11743" ZIP Code postal zone, and it includes the Hamlet of Huntington and parts of 2 villages (municipal corporations) and 6 other hamlets (unincorporated areas) within its service area; and,

3. There is the Town of Huntington, and it includes 4 villages and 15 hamlets as well as the "Huntington, NY 11743" ZIP Code postal zone and all or parts of 11 other ZIP Code postal zones, within its borders.

A map of the Hamlet of Huntington in the Town of Huntington, Suffolk County:


The Hamlet of Huntington has a different border than does the "Huntington, NY 11743" ZIP Code postal zone (i.e., a place can have a "Huntington, NY 11743" mailing address and not be in the Hamlet of Huntington and a place can have other than a "Huntington, NY 11743" mailing address and be in the Hamlet of Huntington): places that have a "Huntington, NY 11743" mailing address that are not in the Hamlet of Huntington are in the Hamlet of West Hills, the Hamlet of Halesite, the Village of Huntington Bay, the Village of Lloyd Harbor, the Hamlet of Cold Spring Harbor, the Hamlet of Centerport, the Hamlet of Greenlawn, the Hamlet of Elwood, the Hamlet of Huntington Station and the Hamlet of Dix Hills; and, at the same time, there are places in the Hamlet of Huntington with a "Cold Spring Harbor, NY 11724", "Huntington Station, NY 11746", "Greenlawn, NY 11740" and "Centerport, NY 11721" mailing address.
