I live out of state and thinking about moving around North Lindenhurst, but heard a mixed review. I heard from certain sources that it's the shady part of Lindenhurst and filled with drugs, crime, and gangs. Although others tell me there isn't that much crime there. If I'm to move there are there any places or gangs to be conserned about? Also what is there to know about this area in general?

North lindy isnt ghetto theres some drug usage but you'll only find it if you go looking for it. Don't listen to people that call it ghetto there just sheltered people that don't know the meaning of ghetto.

North lindy is fine just look it up, there hasnt been any shootings or stabbings this whole year and the only place u'll find gangs are in the north side of west babylon, wyandanch,north amityville, copaigue,hempstead,roosevelt,f reeport,riverhead,central islip,brentwood and a few other places but north lindy is like the hamptons compared to the other places mentioned. So north lindy is fine people say its ghetto to make it seem like there from the hood n that there so cool but really they've never been in a real hood

I've lived on the the northside of W.Bab since 1995 and gangs are not common here at all. It's a very quiet area (except for the occasional loud house party on summer weekend nights) and I jog and walk to the stores every now and then and i've never been bothered at all. Gangs don't loiter around here nor is there any major social issues here. To be honest, and i'm not just saying this, i've actually never seen a gang member within the boundaries of this community.. EVER!

There was a string of RELATED violent incidents last summer *on the streets directly off of&near Straight Path* involving some teenagers but as far as I know, the person who've committed those crimes were busted. The parts closer to Wyandanch are somewhat more at risk to spillover but whenever an area borders a problem area, there usually is spillover...just look at all the spillover Garden City has to deal with from Hempstead or how some Nassau communities on the Nassau-queens border have to deal with NYC nonsense.

One individual shouldn't be able to dictate whether a neighborhood is bad or not and this area should definitely be lumped in with those other places, which truly are problematic locations. Plus, what about that murder the other week in the part of W.Babylon near the HS- it got a lot of publicity but yet nobody's generalizing that section of W.Bab.

As for N.Lindenhurst, I don't think it's a bad area. It just seems like a working class area. I've heard from some people that the part near the McDonalds could be trashy.

A group of people usually teenagers whos only objective in life is to get money, rob people sell drugs. If u look up the shootings that happened in north west bab u'll see that they were gang-related. So if u dont think theres gangs in long island u are stupid. Look up gangs in long island, are u telling me that there are no ms-13 in brentwood? Or bloods and crips in wyandanch and parts of west bab, hempstead roosevelt central islip? Look it up for yourselves

That area of west bab is usually quiet thats why, and then u must be pretty blind cause the area of north west bab with the streets gordon commander n matthews have gang members on that block, and the block platt ave in central west bab is also a crip neighborhood with at least 10 crips living on it and also forest ave in west bab has gangmembers living on it so dont tell me theres no gangs here. Even parts of the number streets are bad didnt u hear about tht guy who was walkin around the neighborhood with a shotgun shooting at police? Alot of break ins and stolen vehicles just look up the 1st precinct crime of all the hamelts in babylon west babylon seems to always be number 1 or 2 in total crime.@bob

I think older people see a collection of young ethnic minorities and call them a gang. I recall my days at Hills West when the only 3 blacks would be together and we were told to break it up. I hated being singled out. Especially when he would walk by 5 white kids.

But, to your point, I hate those people who look to cause trouble. Especially in groups. I call them pussies because they act in concert.

IF West Babylon is *supposedly* number one in total crimes b/c it's the largest hamlet in the town of Babylon. If you look at a map, West Babylon could easily fit both Babylon Village, North Babylon and North Lindenhurst within it's boundaries. If you find data on crime *RATES*/percentages then that would be more plausible.

And you claim that you see gang members all throughout W.B. How do you know the ppl that you accuse of being gang members are actually gang members? The people responsible for the gang incidents last summer weren't even from W.Bab anyways (though I know at least one of the victims were). I will post the follow up article if I can find it again.

And I have NEVER heard of those other petty crimes that you've listed. I've never heard of anybody walking around with a shotgun or car thefts...however, I have heard of burglaries throughout the town but burglaries can and do happen in every type of community.

Do you have an article on the guy walking around with a shotgun thing?

I'm signed up to News12 and the Babylon Village Patch{which covers all of the Babylon's} and I never heard of no such thing.

I've also never seen a gang member within the community limits.

WEST BABYLON, N.Y.(1010 WINS)— A house fire turned violent in a quiet Long Island community when a home owner allegedly pulled out a gun on Saturday.

The fire happened at 9th Avenue and 5th Street in West Babylon around 6:30 p.m. Saturday night, 1010 WINS’ Terry Sheridan reports.



LISTEN: 1010 WINS’ Terry Sheridan reportsPolice said a man with a history of mental illness — 48-year-old Thomas J. Scimone — confronted and threatened to shoot firefighters when they arrived at the scene. Scimone then ordered the firefighters out of the house and climbed out a rear bedroom window and ran into the neighborhood with a shotgun.

When responding officers caught up with him, police said Scimone pointed his gun at the officers, who responded by firing at him multiple times.

Scimone was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital, where he is listed in critical condition.

Eyewitnesses from the scene said it was within a matter of seconds that all hell broke loose.
