Riverhead on the north shore is very nice. I only have one experience with Inwood. Wasn't very nice. Shirley has random streets that are well maintained. Really can't comment on the others.

How many times can this same topic/thread be posted? Every other day it seems essentially this same thread is made.

I think the southeastern part is good, east of Lenox Road (the eastern border of Huntington Station is Park Avenue). I think the area by Maplewood Road is also good.

Back on topic, I would say anything north of Jerusalem Avenue and west of Uniondale Avenue is nice. It gets nicer when you get north of Front Street. There's a cul-de-sac called Delano Park off Front Street that's pretty nice. I also like the area immediately north of Walnut Street School (Compass Street, Leslie Lane, etc).

The bad parts of Uniondale are the parts closer to Roosevelt and (to a degree) Hempstead.

Edit: For the matter, I don't think Freeport belongs on the list either. The Stern's Park area is drop dead gorgeous. It's also nice south of Merrick Road. The main bad area is just east of Main Street and north of Sunrise Highway.
Well around here minority neighborhoods are considered bad...

I have family in Uniondale and I spend a lot of time there and I've never seen anything bad there.

As for Freeport, I grew up there on the south side and its nice, but I agree that the Stearns park section is gorgeous. It has to be the nicest looking area in Nassau for the price.

The very outskirts of the station might yield some nice areas but the main parts like rt 110,depot rd etc. are not very nice with mobs of day workers clogging the side walks not to mention the crimes and recent shootings that the authorities can't seem to control.Coming into that area is like you were dropped into the worse parts of the Bronx or Queens.Lets hope the coming election will put some new members on the town board that will correct this situation it is really BAD!

just goto any town your interested in and drive on a 1 lane wide street doing the speed limit and see if more than a couple of drivers try to make 2 lanes out of the one lane street your driving on (passing you at 80+ miles an hour) thats usually a good determination of how much of a crappy neighborhood it is

This happened to me in Hewlett this morning... DARN middle-aged Jewish women!

Seriously, that's a silly statement. It has also happened to me in Oceanside on my way to work. I think people EVERYWHERE do this. I do admit that in the "worse" areas, people tend to drive worse.
