Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight Peqs.

Thanks for helping Yds out.He was clearly struggling with putting that wily two topic poll together.
; )

I get it, why woulndnt the Consigliere of Motzohpizza have a dog in this fight?
Makes perfect sense Dude.I'm just calling you out on deflection and encroachment.

Listen I'm sorry if what I tell you makes you feel icky, its only because its the truth, and you know it, and it hurts.

Hicksville(like the rest of Nassau) has urbanized significantly over the years.Anyone whos ever left and come back will tell you the same exact thing.I know your desensitized to it,sometimes we need someone from the outside to point out that were swimming in our own waste.

Listen, Im glad you found your happy place on Da Riv.City Sanitation workers who cant afford Queens gotta live somewhere brother....just ask your spokesmodel Gps (hes doing Massapequa righteous right now lol).


Now are you gonna nut up and poll Massapequa Park vs Amityville? I think schools aside advantage Amityville.Its beautiful down there ; ).

Thanks again for playing. Rocky Point never had anything to do with this thread other than what you hijacked.

One thing I want to point out about your view of Nassau as urbanized, and therefore, negative. To me, I don't find urbanization to be a terrible thing. Maybe it's because I work in the city and I am used to it? It just doesn't really bother me about Nassau with the exception of traffic, but I've been out on the Island -- to me, anything east of Huntington is WAY OUT IN SUFFOLK -- and been on small roads (one lane each way) on the north fork that were traffic jammed to hell and back too (yeah I know stuffed withModerator cut: language removed myself out sightseeing), so traffic is not just an urbanization thing, it happens "in the country" too. I still find a lot of positives to Nassau -- urbanized doesn't bother me.

Agreed. I actually grew up in Suffolk, but am much happier in Nassau (not that there arent great places to live in Suffolk as well). I totally agree that Nassau is more "urbanized" and that is fine with me, as I prefer a metro-like area over the "country" feel. But that is why I dont understand all this Nassau vs. Suffolk, RP v Massapequa etc arguing. Everyone is different. Live where you are happiest, that is what its all about, who cares what others think!

Well said! I agree with this. Everyone has different wants...and Long Island pretty much has it all from country to urbanized areas. I prefer soemthing in between myself.

True and agreed. Best post in this entire thread.

Clearly Hicksville has its urban part(s), seedy as it may be, but its still mostly a decent Nassau Suburb. Not the best but no where near Jamaica.

Spend some time here and it becomes clear as day. Certain folks feel the need to put down parts of LI in order to make themselves feel better about where they themselves live.

Amen.

I just dont see the value (other than the schools) for Nassau.

Since weve agreed that they dont count for much, Im still
going with Malba over Malverne.

I actually like Queens, if I was going to put up with the density and traffic, Id pick there first.
I'm not saying Urbanization is bad, Im just saying that Nassaus not really the suburbs anymore.
