My husband got a job in Freeport and we will be moving in late Jan/early Feb next year and we are wondering what neighborhood would be a good place to live for a young couple with no kids.

We are thinking about somewhere within 15-20min to Freeport by car, hopefully nothing further than that. If it's close to LIRR that's awesome but not a requirement, just want to be somewhere that's not obviously out of nowhere... Also, what's the rent like? We're thinking 1-2 bedrooms.

Thanks so much in advance!!!

Long Beach, 20 minutes to Freeport, rent is anywhere from $1200 up for 1bd and around $1600 for 2 bd. Lirr, beach, good resturants and bars!

Long Beach, Rockville Centre, Westbury.....

These towns all have LIRR train stations, have a good selection of bars and restaurants, and are considered "young people" towns for the most part.....

Be warned though, Long Beach can be pricey, and in the summertime the crowds can get out of control bc of tourists and all the ppl going to the beach....

Why not stay in Freeport? If you have no kids... schools wont be a problem. Check out the area near the Nautical Mile.

That would definitely work. Mineola would work as well if they wanted something a bit more walkable (as would Long Beach and Rockville Centre)

Long Beach is nice, but it will take like way too long to get to places like Roosevelt field. That would be a deal breaker for me.

I'd suggest renting in an apartment on the south side of freeport.

You don't indicate where you are moving from so if possible I would suggest a trip to see the local area up close and personal before putting dime one into a rental. City-data is a great start but please plan a visit before you make a move.

Most people know LB and even Rockville Centre are very pricey...

Also, Westbury has been featured in CNN Money's Top Places to Live the last few years now as a town that is good for young couples and singles....

Google it, the article is everywhere..
