This thread has beyond derailed. It's gone from cheap good places to live, to cheap bad places that people erroneously think will be good to live, to now that pluses and minuses of septic systems vs. cesspools.

Maybe we should talk about speed limits next.

As the original title was Mission Impossible (big house for cheap price) it was bound to derail...

Wyandach can make a turn around but it wont happen through real estate. Parts just seem too underdeveloped to even market to home buyers.

What laws (other than the ones already in place and enforced) can be implemented to stop human wastoids from doing the white trash thing in their community?
I read recently the town of Brookhaven started going after absentee landlords with violations. Also taking over abandoned properties.

G-Dale, what do you pay? I'm in a co-op so I don't see those types of charges.

I pay the NYC Water Board just a little more than a grand a year. Maybe close to $1200. Cesspool doesn't sound so bad.

The area north of Colonial Prings Rd/Main Ave is commonly known as Wheatley Hts and is indeed in the HHH SD. The area is officially described as a "Census-designated place in Suffolk County".

50+ years ago when a lot of the infrastructure went in Nassau had roughly the same population density as today with even more people. Suffolk was still largely rural and less populated.

Sewer costs are a function of distance and density....Suffolk is a lot bigger so costs would be much higher.

If those homes went to wyandanch schools they would sell for 40% less. The city folks would like Wheatley its gentrified at 40% Caucasian compared to 5% for the rest of the danch.
From a local history of the area:
Quote:
The name Wheatley Heights comes from a 1913 development mapped out by real estate investor William Geiger.
Wikipedia states:
Quote:
The name of the area was changed to Wheatley Heights by a property developer to distinguish that Wyandanch residents north of Main Avenue are part of the Half Hollow Hills school district.
This is like South Setauket, NY 11720 -- which in reality is Centereach, NY 11720. It made the developer more money to be able to change the name for that area to South Setauket, perhaps to drive the price of the homes up a little, but when all is said and done, they are in Centereach.

The cesspools in Nassau are largely a result of dense development occurring much earlier compared with Suffolk. Sewers were connected to my parents' home in Massapequa not much longer after the LIE was completed 46 years ago.

From what I have been reading, the areas with early mass development (Nassau, western Suffolk) have homes built on smaller lots as opposed to those developed later. The homes on smaller lots tend to be in communities with sewers. More of us in Suffolk should have been on sewers a while ago, however, a huge scandal a few decades ago derailed that.
