Living on Long Island, NY is great because I have the benefits living close to the parks & beaches and I am also only a short drive from New York City and all the culture and fun Manhattan has to offer.
I live a few miles from several beaches, boardwalks and a beautiful
harbor where I go cycling and walk on the boardwalk. I often go to the beach in the summers and I can't wait to build sand castles with a little one of my own.
There are many parks and a highly rated public school system in my neighborhood. My friends & family live close by ... there will never be shortage of kids to play with!
