"To Cousin"

Cannot edit but also to meant to add -- thank you for taking the higher ground says a lot about your character. The ones posting these vile, racist comments have proven their ignorance; no need to stoop to their level.

I thought Elmont was a bad area, but neighboring New Hyde Park is by far the White Trash center for all of Nassau County, even surpassing Levittown. Did you see the story about the Trash Punks that went on the rampage last week outside of Stop & Shop in New Hyde Park? They claimed they did so after playing Grand Theft Auto on Play Station. Creeps!
Hey jurk-off wwhite trash...first story about New Hyde Park in along time...beautiful crime filled Elmont makes the news just about everyday! As everyone thinks Terrace Ave is off the turnpike in Elmont and the other Terrace Ave is down the block in Hempstead...they are right!

Sorry to disapoint YOU, but New Hyde Park is headed down the same path as Elmont, after all, it is in the same High School District (Sewanaka). New Hyde Park, especially the Village, especially the Village South of Jericho Turnpike near the LIRR tracks (fittingly) has lots of you know what trash moving in. These kids act like gang banger wannabes and dress with their pants falling off and walk down the streets in packs with a gait that looks like they are walking on an earthquake. Like Elmont, New Hyde Park used to be a nice place to live. Not anymore. Unfortunately.

No, they are replaced with rib joints, bodegas and check cashing stores. All covered in graffiti.
Not a one on Meacham Avenue, although the original Primavera owners sold, and it's not nearly as good.

I think the decline of NHP is greatly exaggerated and will take some time before it gets to Elmont status. Floral Park is also in the Sewanhaka district and we are doing ok.

There are sections of Floral Park that are exceptionally beautiful, such as the area around Tulip Lane which has a Norman Rockwell Americana type of feel. However, New Hyde Park, especially within the Village mostly is really declining. Too bad. It used to be great place.

I feel that a lot of people are writting stereotypical comments.Do to the fact that Elmont isn't Italian and Irish anymore you think that is the downfall of the community? Well do to facts White people are arrested more then the average african american . And the resivism rate for white americans is hire then any race. Lets deal with the issue as so. People are messing up

Perhaps you can tell me why the recidivism rate for blacks is almost 17%(greater than that for whites)? The USDOJ reports that 64% of those in prison are black/minorities.
Care to go another round and figure out why these things happen in minority neighborhoods?

I guess your living in a 5 mile radius bubble in "any town" Long Island. If you have not noticed that no town is exempt from the sshhit that walks,drives into, and visits our many different towns. I have to laugh that people are still living in the bubble that certain towns are still safe....right! As I mentioned before, the trash circulates in everytown from Mastic to Massapequa from Greenport to Great Neck...its that simple. These aa-holes that keep saying "oh my god I have lived here for 30 years and nothing like this happens because its a quiet block"....wake up and start realizing we are the 6th Boro of crime,drugs,etc.,etc....keep thinking Green Acres mall is safe during the daytime or take your family to Jones Beach...let me know when you wake up!!

Sorry, but I woke up a very long time ago; Just the opposite, I have not slept for a good while because the rot and infestation that has invaded our communities is ceratainly cause for concern. However, I do agree with you on the rest of your commentary. Most of Long island has become a cesspool of disrespectful people and families that have no concept of decency and decorum. However, I will say that some neighborhoods seem more prone to crime than others, namely Elmont, Valley Stream, Hempstead, Freeport and New Cassel. I have been stating for almost twenty years that we have been witnessing the "Queensification" of most of Nassau County. Again, it is too bad; I feel this deterioration is not reversible.
Its a shame
