I wouldn't disclose my location either if I were living in Suffdump. Take your ball and go home now.

BTW, Joey B lives in LA; Amy Fisher grew up and went to school in Bellmore and now lives in SUFFOLK (around Holtsville I believe).

Like I said, Nitwits.



Let's not let reality get in the way of NYTom's ultra-sophisticated deadly accurate commentary on Nassau .
See? you really do live with your parents!

Now lets hear from some grown ups who actually own houses so we can take them seriously.

A summer's night -- crickets chirping, a delightful, cooling breeze enters through the open window. My mother sneezes. Our neighbor across the street would call back, "God Bless You!"

The houses in my old Nassau neighborhood were close to one another.

I agree. I recently moved here myself and came to this board thinking I would get some good information. I was pretty scared that Long Island was actually a horrible place. I am here and have been here for a while now and tell you what...this place is not so bad.

Sure maybe to someone who never got out but thats a whole different can. To someone who has been all around the country but never really explored the NE...Long Island is an amazing place to be...

Since Suffolk is extremely larger than Nassau of course there will be more "dumpy" areas but it also depends on the demographics of the area, which nobody talked about.

Suffolk has more minority areas in towns like Brentwood, Wyandanch, CI, Bay Shore, Port Jefferson Station and Patchogue where there is a predominantly Dominican and spanish population.

Nassau has areas like Hempstead, Roosevelt, Freeport, Elmont, Valley Stream, Glen Cove and New Cassel which is predominantly african american. (with the exception of Glen Cove, which is predominantly Dominican and Central american).

Both also have their white trash/redneck areas as well.....Suffolk claiming Shirley and Mastic and Nassau claiming a lot of the south shore towns. (such as the ones just mentioned).

So its all of what you prefer....each county has its not so decent areas.....
When was the last time you were actually IN any of the areas you are trashing in Nassau? Valley Stream is not predominantly "African American" and is certainly not on a par with Hempstead, Roosevelt, Freeport, Elmont, Glen Cove and New Cassel.

I also don't understand how this thread, which was actually a compliment to Patchogue's downtown growth, turned into the "Mighty Battle of Nassau and Suffolk!" Let's get a grip, people! There are nice areas in both Nassau and Suffolk -- plenty to choose from for all according to everyone's tastes, budgets and wants!

This is absolute fantasy, especially when it comes to Hewlett, Woodmere, and Valley Stream. Have you been to Elmont and Franklin Square and seen all the new, big houses there? While there may be a few (very few) neighborhoods in the other areas right on the border that are "cookie cutter design, no property, and that your neighbors can peer through the window and see what you are having for dinner every night" most neighborhoods in Nassau in fact are not "Archie Bunker" Queens style.

I have to agree. Even where my parents used to live back in the 60s was a new development with bigger lots and more land, and the houses were not cookie cutter queens style nor on top of one another

However most of FQ and Elmont do resemble queens. But not all.

We know you defend Mass. to the death, but now the entire county? Have fun.
Wow that's painting a wide swath of Nassau with the "undesirable" brush!

I presume you live in an eight-figure mansion in the Hamptons, right, if you can trash Nassau that far and wide?
