The OP could look into East Massapequa (east of Carman Mill Road / Carmans Road). Very diverse neighborhood. But it's in the Amityville school district.

Also parts of Deer Park and Farmingdale could be options.

True, good suggestion. Although East Massapequa as a 'whole' is not "very diverse"; census has it at 84% white vs 80% in 2000. Probably the only hamlet on LI with a reverse-diversification trend?
Although the Amity section (east of Carman Mill rd/Carmans rd) that you noted is a little more diverse than the rest of East Mass -- probably resembles a town like East Meadow more than it resembles East Massapequa as a whole.

My suggestion to the OP:
-Fred's suggestion, (but Amityville Moderator cut: language removed -Valley Stream (avoid North-west VS)
-West Hempstead
-Baldwin (avoid the High School)
-Farmingdale, East Meadow (if they are diverse enough for you)

Are you referring to parts of the Village of Farmingdale, or are you referring to parts of the Hamlet of South Farmingdale or parts of the Hamlet of East Farmingdale or ... ?

Places that have a "Farmingdale, NY 11735" mailing address that are not in the Village of Farmingdale are in the Hamlet of South Farmingdale, the Hamlet of Plainedge, as well as in the Hamlet of Old Bethpage in the Town of Oyster Bay, Nassau County and in the Hamlet of East Farmingdale and the Hamlet of Wyandanch in the Town of Babylon, Suffolk County.

The "non-Amityville" portions of East Massapequa generally attending Massapequa schools (which actually covers most of the area) pretty much resemble the rest of the 'Greater Massapequas' - as far as 'diversity' goes. The 'Amityville' section is much more 'diverse' than the rest of E. Massapequa with a healthy mix of African/Carribean Americans / Latinos etc. This area generally accounts for the overall minority percentages for East Massapequa as a whole. But like you said Pequa, the only real drawback to the area in most people's eyes is the school district. A lot of families in the area (all races - black/white etc) send their kids to private/catholic school - although most of the kids do attend Amityville public schools.

I know some people who had concerns much like the OP who moved to Deer Park recently. They are very happy with the neighborhood and schools. I believe some section(s) of Deer Park attend Half Hollow Hills schools as well.

A small section in the northwest part of Deer Park is in the Half Hollow Hills Central School District.

Beginning on the north and moving in a clockwise direction, the Half Hollow Hills Central School District includes all or part of the Hamlet of Dix Hills, the Hamlet of Deer Park, the Hamlet of Wheatley Heights, the Hamlet of Wyandanch, the Hamlet of East Farmingdale, the Hamlet of Melville, the Hamlet of West Hills and the Hamlet of South Huntington.

This thread has been going on for quite some time ... I wonder if the OP has already bought a house by now? I'd be interested to hear where and what your experience has been.

I am in an interracial relationship, and have lived in both Elmont and Franklin Square. We never encountered problems in either, but preferred Franklin Square. And we're currently looking in Western Suffolk/Eastern Nassau, including the area of Deer Park with HHH schools. Good luck!

Depends on what part of Queens. Queens is known as the melting pot borough but it actually is not. While there are a lot of races and cultures in Queens, it is as segregated as Long Island, particularly certain parts of Eastern Queens. These cultures and races just so happen to live amongst their own for the most part.
