I think the reason for the discrepancy here is that people know two different parts of Lindenhurst and they are very different. North Lindenhurst IS pretty shitty, and I can see why certain people would call it the ghetto. In my opinion, calling it a ghetto is going way too far but I agree it is pretty shitty.
However, South Lindenhurst, which is South of Montauk is actually pretty nice and definitely not a ghetto. There are some beautiful homes and very wealthy people that live in that area. I personally think the two areas are so different that they should split the two towns apart.
If they separated South Lindenhurst from North Lindenhurst, South Lindenhurst would be regarded as a very nice town.

Don't make the assumption that becasue some have more money that the are not ghetto. Ghetto pertains to a quality of life; higher crime, lower school performance, drugs, etc... Wealthier people can buy their way out of some social ills, but I know a few who are trust-fund babies and are substance abusers. Dix Hills, NY
