Need information about the area surrounding Melville Rd and Deepdale Drive. I'm buying a home, I'm a 30-something professional divorced woman with a preschool age son. The school district (South huntington) appears to have good ratings. I know parts of Huntington Station are questionable. I also know the area has lots of shopping and a mall. Please give me any info as to safety, public transport, traffic, or anything else related to the livability of the neighborhood. Thanks.

I've been out of school for 20 years and don't have any kids, so I can't really comment much on the current school situation, but I think Whitman is decent. Half Hollow hills is better.

But I lived right near that neighborhood from 2006 until just last month. Definitely a nice "middle class" neighborhood (interpret that how you will). The Walt Whitman Mall, umm I mean Shops, is right there. With a hub for bus transport to just about anywhere. And it's about 10 min south of the Huntington train station. Cold Spring Station is also reasonably close - nicer station but less parking... Traffic can get a little hairy mid-day on 110 (New York Ave) and Jericho, but not horrible. The other end of 110 near Main St (25a) can get pretty congested too.

You're also also pretty close to both the LIE and NSP as well

But it doesn't really get questionable until you cross to the north side of Jericho (25) and head a bit more north towards the station (where I grew up).

I have an elderly friend who lives in off Wolf Hill across from St Elizabeth's. That neighborhood is quiet and well kept. It isn't very far from where you're looking.

With a young child, if the house is on either of the streets you mentioned, I would be concerned with traffic. I noticed double yellow lines on both roads. I can only imagine that come rush hour or the holidays that there is some cut through traffic looking to avoid 110 or NY Ave.

Yeah, that area is generally fine. S. Huntington is very tricky if you don't know where to look.

There's pockets of decent and not-so-decent in that area. But the further north you go from there, the more not-so-decent it gets...
