What kind of people live in these towns (see list below) in Long Island? What do they do for a living? Is it all old money? Do you know any of them? Are they down to earth? They seem like fairytale places to live! Just curious...I have driven through some of them and seen them on the Internet and wow!

Sands Point, Kings Point, Matinecock, Muttontown, Old Westbury, Cove Neck, Brookville, Old Brookville, Upper Brookville, Mill Neck, Lattingtown, Centre Island, Oyster Bay Cove

None of the above are towns.

Sands Point and Kings Point are villages in the Town of North Hempstead.

Matinecock, Muttontown, Cove Neck, Brookville, Old Brookville, Upper Brookville, Mill Neck, Lattingtown, Centre Island and Oyster Bay Cove are villages in the Town of Oyster Bay.

Old Westbury is a village partly in the Town of North Hempstead and partly in the Town of Oyster Bay.

What kind of people live there? Rich ones!

I've stayed in a mansion in Mill Neck (near Beaver Lake and down the street from the School for the Deaf)when I was a HS student. I was simply amazed by how the 'other half' lived. Believe me, it was really tough heading back to my parent's little tract house on the south shore after having stayed in Mill Neck!

Some of it is old money, some newer.

Alot of old money still, but as more and more estates are broken up, it's more and more new money. You've got a lot of Wall St. guys, also CEOs of companies, surgeons and other drs, lawyers, athletes, you know they typical mix of money.

Why do you ask?

The people in the areas are typically Wall Street types or Business Executives. Also a lot of business owners live in the areas. I live in one of the areas and most of my neighbors work in Manhattan.

I know a family that lives in Muttontown, they just moved there a few years ago from Baldwin. He is a lawyer and she is at home. They seemed nice when they lived in Baldwin but once they got up to the north shore-well- shall we say now they think they walk on water!

Love Old Westbury!

New money

I have friends - a doctor, a superintendent, one entertainer.

Been to a few great parties there and met other folks who live there.

I agree very nice down to earth people.

Default For those who may not be familiar with Muttontown

For those who may not be familiar with Muttontown:

Muttontown is a village (incorporated in 1931) in the central part of the Town of Oyster Bay, in the northeast part of Nassau County.

Beginning on the north and moving in a clockwise direction, the Village of Muttontown in the Town of Oyster Bay is bordered on the north by the Village of Upper Brookville and the Hamlet of East Norwich; on the east by the Hamlet of Syosset; on the south by the Hamlet of Jericho; and, on the west by the Village of Brookville and the Village of Upper Brookville.

Muttontown is one of those many villages and hamlets on Long Island where none of the places in the community have the village name in their mailing address: places in the Village of Muttontown have a "Syosset, NY 11791", "Jericho, NY 11753", "Glen Head, NY 11545", "East Norwich, NY 11732" and "Oyster Bay, NY 11771" mailing address.
