Look its all a matter of perspective....these folks are moving out from the Bronx.
Deer Park may seem like Mayberry to them...who knows?
If it were me I'd look South at Bay Shore/Islips for affordable.
(but be careful some spots by the LIRR are rough).
Otherwise Id look East to Sound Beach, Rocky Point or Ridge.
I think the middle has fallen and will continue to fall.
It's just an observation...
I've seen good towns up the middle go bad and bad towns on the shorelines gentrify significantly over the last 10 years.
As always..buy the district not the town.
Proceed with caution.
