Gateway to the Hamptons? What about living out there? Is is true that North shore is suppose to be more desirable and the Moriches being south is not a good area to buy in?

I have read that the East Moriches schools had issues and am wondering if that situation has gotten any better or if the quality of the schools is still a real turn off for purchasing a home in that district. Looking in zip code 11934 specifically,

Proximity to the beaches looks like it would be a bonus, but life isn't just about a beach.

Opinions appreciated.

Same here. My old gym partner lived in Center Moriches and loved it. There is some white trashy areas though. But overall its a nice quaint town with good schools.

There are 3 "Moriches" (from west to east): Moriches, Center Moriches and East Moriches.

Default For those who may not be familiar with Moriches

For those who may not be familiar with Moriches:

Moriches is a hamlet (an unincorporated area) in the southeast part of the Town of Brookhaven, in the south-central part of Suffolk County.

Beginning on the north and moving in a clockwise direction, the Hamlet of Moriches in the Town of Brookhaven is bordered on the north by the Hamlet of Manorville; on the east by the Hamlet of Center Moriches; and, on the south and west by the Hamlet of Mastic.





The Hamlet of Moriches has a different border than does the "Moriches, NY 11955" postal zone (i.e., a place can have a "Moriches, NY 11955" mailing address and not be in the Hamlet of Moriches and a place can have other than a "Moriches, NY 11955" mailing address and be in the Hamlet of Moriches): places that have a "Moriches, NY 11955" mailing address that are not in the Hamlet of Moriches are in the Hamlet of Mastic; and, at the same time, there are places in the Hamlet of Moriches with a "Center Moriches, NY 11934" mailing address.

I grew up in Center Moriches and would still live there today if I could find work in my field. I love it there. The area is quaint (even today), has great access to the bay and beaches. I can't imagine a better childhood growing up swimming and sailing all summer. The schools are good and they just expanded the HS in Center Moriches to deal with the growing population. It's great to be so close to the Hamptons to enjoy a nice meal or walk through town but it's also nice to be away from them in the summer with all the NYC people coming out. If you choose Center Moriches, I would recommend living south of the railroad tracks. Just nicer areas in my opinion. Lake and Union avenues are my favorites...

Good Luck.

I was actually out there this past weekend poking my nose around the neighborhoods. I would def. say that south of the tracks is the "better kept" area. I was taken back when I seen how quaint and quiet it was even on a beautiful saturday. I think Im adding it to my home search!
