What is the opinion of both areas? I should specify that my only concerns are safety and school districts. I know there are other areas that don't have these potential issues but there are few areas where the property taxes are not as high and the houses are a bit more affordable. The houses I was looking at are zoned for Amityville and Deer Park schools. I have heard some not so good things about both. Furthermore, when people say these schools are not so great, is this in contrast to other Long Island schools or in general? Are the problems academic or are they serious safety issues (violence)? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

.....and here we go......

Seriously though, on LI SD seems to be first on the list determining home values. So if the consensus says the Sds are no good, skip the analysis and move on.

You just can't change popular opinion, and you'll pay for it in one way or another.

I'm sure others here will chime in about those specific SDs for ya.

I just moved from Deer Park...school system is pretty good actually. Elementary school ranks better than the high school, but still solid. I don't know where the house is that you looked at, but as long as it isn't too close to Bayshore Road on the east side, or close to Wyandanch on the west side, you should be OK. I was in Deer Park right on the border of Dix Hills and it was completely fine.

If I'm reading you correctly, if the house with a "Massapequa, NY 11758" mailing address is in the Amityville Union Free School District, then it is in East Massapeqa, not Massapequa.
