There's only ceratain areas that are bad. The Mafia is migrating out there more. Some towns are basically New York's Compton. Outside the city, terrible crime but at least Compton can decrease crime rates unlike New York.

We already have this crap its called Great Neck Plaza and it's bad enough directly above a 2 track LIRR line WITHOUT a 22,000 seat arena, Aquarium and Zoo.

The Meadowbrook parkway is heavy or jammed from M3 Roosevelt field to M5 East on a normal day. Let alone this thing and a Coliseum who did the studies Jerry Lewis ?
100%. We already have the world largest parking lot its called the LIE.

Here is the rest of the song not in Newsday or NYT
Proof how crazy and sick detrimental Suozzi and his "friends" are. The complex will also include a Zoo, Aquariuman, 11 office buildings (5-10 floors high) and connections to towns he calls "Islands" Monorails, a Bus terminal, a new An intra-island rail system.(No doubt this will run on the old LI Motor Parkway ROW, currently owned by LIPA to supply power to the old NHP Sperry plants)
This guys crazy, Nassua County gov will take more peoples homes then Robert Moses and Aldorf Ratner (Atlantic Yards) put together !!
Read the stuff in the .PDF's Newsday doesnt print.

Check out this thread of info

What is going to happen to the people living in houses there? Went back last year and hardly recognized the area. Traffic was bad.

I saw a few mentions of the HUB and the Coliseum. Is there another thread devoted to that? If not I'll create one.

I love it here. It is NOT as bad as you or some others may think. It's wonderful here and YES there is BAD issues everywhere not just LI.

I think LI is a great place to live and raise a family. I wouldn't live anywhere else.

I mean...does this look terrible...

That looks great, cant wait until it is built. Hopefully it will be well maintained and troublemakers will not ruin it for us.

I will live in a town with a well structured Italian alliance ANYDAY over other multicultural nuthouses like Queens and Great Neck where some truly AWFUL people run wild.

If any so called "MAFIA" still exists... god bless what left of them and the cops know it.

yea its pretty bad, but not much has changed since 10 yrs ago. racists like yourself are still around. traffic is still there. greedy people always wanting more and not willing to contribute anything like the leeches they are. yep, all the things that make long island a great place.

I'm reading rising crime, Illegal Aliens, Traffic day & night, low paying salaries on LI, high taxes, low job growth,high utilty costs, expensive housing, and a corruption problem?

If thats all true why stay?

So is it really that bad? Has it changed so much?

Any info helps.

Thanks

Default LI-dont miss it

I grew up on Long Island through the 70's and graduated from massapequa in '90. I don't regret one second leaving. Year after year it gets more and more crowded and dirty. My grandmother still lives there and it is no longer the long island I remember as a child. I would never consider living there again or raising my children there. It has become one big mess i think. Back when I was younger you would drive down sunrise hwy into suffolk get to bohemia and it was like the country. Now even suffolk counnty has become overcrowded as well...
