Want to move to Long Island from Brooklyn. Looking to buy a house (up to $500,000), but don't know much about neighborhoods. Any recomendations? Thanks.

How about thinking about what your own non negotiables are and work from there. Are schools important, commute, family nearby or distant. We need more from you to help you narrow the island down other than budget.

You just got two good answers. Give us something to work with; in the meantime just disregard all those people who will tell you what is good for them.

Three Village is one of the nicest places on long island. I like that area because it has a very old fashioned, almost 1800s feel to it, and not a typical suburb. Here are houses in Stony brook and Setauket. Stony Brook NY Real Estate - 174 Homes For Sale | Zillow
Setauket-East Setauket NY Real Estate - 177 Homes For Sale | Zillow

I want to be in Nassau county. Looking for a one family house. Don't have kids yet, but planning to, so schools are somewhat important.

Not really enough information to give good advice.
For starters, check out New Hyde Park.
