E. Meadow (to me) personifies drab dated LI suburbia. It's got nothing to distinguish it aside from the big drab public hospital. I guess it's okay if you want an older cape, ranch or whatever. It's better nabe than Hempstead or Uniondale. Meh.

Yeah I always found it to be a no nothing area. Not bad, just zero character.
Just streets and houses lumped together and that's it.

I don't think a town is "spoiled" just by being next to Uniondale anyway. Uniondale is the nicest of the "bad" Nassau County towns.

A part of Westbury is in EM SD. In that case, you can park at Westbury train station if you are commuting.

Does anyone know the different neighborhoods or sections of East Meadow? Or even if there are differences between one part of East Meadow to another? That seems to be Amylauren main question.

All the sections of East Meadow are fine IMO. Barnum Woods has the reputation as the better area, but I don't buy it.

McVey, Meadowbrook are both good. I think McVey Elementary has been better rated lately and Meadowbrook has the smaller school size.

Parkway and Bowling Green IMO, are a tick below in terms of schools, but nothing significant. Bowling Green has parts of Westbury attend it.

Bowling Green and Meadowbrook elementary go to Clarke JHS/HS and the others go to Woodlands/East Meadow High School. Both high schools seem fine, though EM HS is across from the jail.

East Meadow school district covers quite a bit of area. Old Country Road and North Jerusalem Road are the North/South borders; The Meadowbrook Parkway and the Wantagh Parkway are the East/West borders.

There are 5 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and two high schools. Everyone living north of Hempstead Tpke is zoned for Clarke MS / HS and south of the Tpke is zoned for Woodland MS / East Meadow HS. Clarke is ranked a bit higher than EMHS (as per Great Schools and US News), but in real life, they're comparable. EMHS is larger.

There are sections of Westbury (called Salisbury) and a sliver of Levittown (occasionally called Westbrook Park) that go to East Meadow schools and are zoned for Clarke. There are no "bad" neighborhoods or areas, but I'd advise against living on a major road (Front Street, Bellmore Road).

I completely agree. I donít find there to be anything wrong with E. Meadow. I was saying this in defense of the town.
