Would anyone know why Franklin Square specifically has significantly lower property taxes than other good neighborhoods in Nassau? Is there a catch? Is the hamlet cutting corners?

As a hamlet (an unincorporated area), Franklin Square does not have its own gov't and is governed on an at-large basis by the Town of Hempstead.

I know that in the mid-90's you could throw a stone in Franklin Square and it would hit an Italian.

I haven't been back to the area in years though.
Or has it improved.
JK.


BTW Isnt Snooki from Franklin Sq?


All kidding aside from what I can tell, FS is a great little town.

Sea Cliff is a nice picturesque village. Polar opposite of blah Franklin Square (which has a lot of positives, but quaintness or beautiful cetainly aren't among them).


Rethink about WHY you want to go to Sea Cliff and decide if it is worth the move. How old are the kids? Is it worth it to wait a few years until they're grown? How will the move affect you financially? Higher mortgage and taxes? Is your job stable? Could you handle being unemployed for a period of time with the new house? How is the Sea Cliff commute vs FS commute?
