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

I am looking to purchase a house in lindenhurst. I think its a great community and would be proud to call it home. I have been to lindenhurst and while some areas (N. Lindenhurst) might not be the most eye appealing the town and people were friendly. I have lived in Wantagh my whole life and would rather live with the Blue collar, down to earth Lindenhurst people than the stuck up snobs of Wantagh anyday. I love how these people who dont even live in lindenhurst call it ghetto. Why? because they are blue collar workers? Because they dont go to work in a suite and tie? Because they dont have $700k houses? Because they get their hands dirty and work hard for the money they get? You white collar workers would be screwed without the blue collar workers that you all call trash to do your dirty work. I guess because i want to purchase a house there i must be white trash too. Well aww sheet...i'll just go play my banjo now. Get over yourselves.
Thank u sanatra for defending a town that I have lived in for as long as I can remember, u are most welcome to ower blue color town, hope u find the house of ur dreams, and as for u rude and opinionated morons whom do not live here, don't u dare think for one minute that ur vulgar and nasty words have any affect upon us swindlers, we work hard, we play hard, and ur judgement we do not need, remember what comes around really comes around, one day one of ur Lindenhurst people may save ur life,

i live in lindenhurst and some of the people are just garbage and they don't even know it. There are so many con artists and dirt bags that people listen to like there god and i just don't understand also
repair shops i was quoted a price on a transmission from a local shop and it was cheap 1200.00
my farther told me that cheap is not always good. I have a Honda civic i went to a couple other brands and they were all about the same 2000 to 2500 i went with 2200 wasn't gonna take the chance my dad also told me before he died that shops just change 1 or 2 things and lie to you. I went to a shop on Merrick road lindenhurst it was very bizzy the owners couldn't speak English very well i found out i was the same nationality myself did not trust them at all very bizzy don't understand people never go there again. I met a lady and she seemed like a nice person i hung out with here 1 or two times she needed a repair on here car she priced 1 or 2 shops had here car diagnosed and didn't even give them anything and brought it to a shop that was cheaper what a creep. Lindenhurst is a nice place but you cant trust anyone just like out east from medford to mastic they are all back stabbers and cheats they cheat and talk about there friends a bunch of hillbillys And scammers. Thats why lindenhurst is swindelhurst you can trust anyone
