I've noticed a certain individual complaining about how bad Elmont is and how black people destroyed it but FACTS and REALITY suggest otherwise. Elmont actually is better than many White communities in Nassau County.

What ranking are you talking about? There's been no such ranking ever made.

They don't take into account the minority illegal tenants that live in almost every house in Elmont.

Elmont died a slow death from 1997 to present

True as this may be even in the shittiest most racist white neighborhood one can walk around at night without worrying about much. Sure they may scream a racial slur or give u that dirty minority look. But looks n words only do so much. However being a resident of elmont, i can't say the same. With black teens playing that violent game "knockout" or simply roaming the streets in groups attempting to provoke a dispute. Or simply to rob an individual. Sure its not all the blacks in elmont, but just go into western beef n see the disgruntled disputes n low life trash that work behind the counter. Elmont may not be east NY, or south Bronx but it is a ghetto and unfortunately many of the individuals causing people to feel this way are black. I myself am black n hope that the whites reclaim elmont n kick all these ghetto coons out so that my children may walk the streets in peace.

Belmont is disgusting... They make themselves disgusting... What kind of court system would let a lunatic vet tech cut off a dogs ears and legs without having used any type of sedating meds... And they let this lunatic off with no jail time... Now he can go and attack you or your child... It's obvious this guy is sick in the head... I was reading this happened in Belmont...

One thing elmont has going for it is the lack of any real gang violence problem. That being said, I'm surprised it's not a better place to live. There is no downtown area with restaurants, etc which makes the place look worse than it is.
