Frankly I don't see much difference. There are some parts of West Babylon that are definitely nicer than some parts of Lindy, like by the East Farmingdale FD (which is for whatever reason in West Bab).

The only BAD parts of West Babylon is bordering Wyandanch. West Babylon is a nice town. Remember, this is LONG ISLAND, the second-place least-ghetto area of USA after SFBay, CA..

Well have u ever heard of a shooting in lindy..? No but in west bab its probly evry 3 months theres a shooting,n the high school is actually worse than lindys
Oh and btw to say certain schools are worse than others is very stupid. It's all opinions. I moved from Massapequa to Lindenhurst and even though Lindy is statistically worse I still like it a lot better.

Never heard of any schools being assigned "averages", but whatever. Still, school ratings are never reliable. Think of Great Neck.

Speaking of natural disasters in Lindenhurst...how long ago did we have that disastrous storm that destroyed the Lindenhurst dock, & look how long it's taken them to start the repairs. Don't they have insurance for this? If I kept my property in such disrepair in Lindenhurst I'd get a summons of some type and get nickeled and dimed to death. You can't even sell your own car in your own driveway here without getting a summons, but the Village can have the Wellwood Ave clock not working, the dock not repaired, holes in the roads, curbs not easily used by wheelchairs. As for the ridiculously numerous amount of bars in Lindenhurst, the village actually made the Guiness World Records many years ago for having so many bars per area of some type. Bring back our movie house with reasonable prices like it had before. Close one of the crappiest bars & open some type of tutoring / homework center to help our kids. Have some real activities at a youth center that don't involve video games or eat kids' quarters.
Homework tutor session. My both kids graduated all AP classes, they were top on their sport teams. One will graduate as an engineer and applied math and science the other going to be a surgeon. It wasn't easy to get to this point. Number one I didn't need anyone to tutor my child! His homework and school work was priority! Everything else came second. Spoiled were they ever that was called reward. They weren't allowed to HANG out and walk the streets. They could go out, just needed a place to go with an adult. Respect teachers, period and some were winners. Dinner was on my table everynight and we talk around the table. Now college students barely home I hear they miss that the most. The laughing around the table. The good kids don't hang the streets look at the fields they are there! Get involved! Yes we could use some more recreation, but those kids wouldn't use it!

Not necessarily. Wyandanch has to deal with over 60% of its student body being on welfare, 16% in ESL, and a whopping 18% in special ed. Meanwhile, Jericho is blessed with only 4% on welfare, 2% ESL, and 10% special Ed.

And there are no "averages" for state tests, it's averages for SATs that people sometimes use. For state tests, people use "percent passing", you dumbfuck.

I think you are wrong ehen making a comparison. The SAT stats are based on those who intend on going to college. So, you will find that most fall within the 'normal curve'. Students' going to college are expected to do well on standardized exams. You should compare the PSAT which measures all students. That test should give a better picture of all students within a school.

I am a former Wyandanch students with a PhD in econometrics with a 6-figure income. I have plenty of friends from Wyandanch who had better grades than I did and they are doing quite well.

How is West Bab much worse than Lindy? They are almost exactly the same, except for maybe the part of West Babylon north of the SSP (which really should be part of Wyandanch). I'm a LHS student and would actually like to go toWBHS since their Science Olympiad team is a lot better than ours.
Look at the crime report of august for town of babylon, west bab wit 7 vehicle thefts in 1 MONTH West bab did worse than all other hamlets in the town includin deer park north lindy babylon village north babylon

I lived in Lindenhurst for 29 years. Still have family there. What is so bad about it?....Really. Married my husband also from Lindenhurst. Middle income families just trying to make it these days. Due to the economy, I see the village is not what it was 15 years ago, but I see the same in other towns on Long Island. I am not embarrassed to say I am formerly from Lindenhurst. We are not talking about a comparison to Copiague or Wyndanch are we?

Lindenhurst is not as crappy as you think of it. Come on look at our high school sports teams, amazing outcomes in the season. Lindenhurst gets all of these names for no reason. I really don't understand, I love it here. Everybody is saying how it's ghetto and filled with white trash. Wel guess what, theres like none of that here. I've live in lindy for all of my life and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. All of my best friends are here and all of my amazing sports teams. Everyone is so nice. I still dont know why lindenhurst gets bad mouthed there is nothing wrong here, it's just you average town on long island.
I agree with this. Everyone who says its a bad place to live has probably never come here. During hurricane sandy everybody was nice and helped out and I can say I now know most of my neighbors. I've also lived here all my life and I love it here. A lot of ppl online think tht everyone is a drug dealer, I bet that in other people's towns there is some in their town too they just don't know about it. going to school in lindenhurst gave me some of the best memories you can imagine. What I don't get is why people are always trashing us cause I bet you if you told me your town I can trash that too. Yeah some ppl think tht lindy is not as good as it used to be but so is America. If you want to trash lindy so be it but first think of the good things about it. In my opinion if you insult my town you're insulting me

No, I have a classmate who works for LIPA as a VP of Engineering. Another is a VP for Sun Trust in Atlanta. One is a famous rapper (Rakim). Another is a Head Coach for the University of Penn and a graduate of that same school. Another is a school principal in Medford. And, that is just off the top of my head from my class of 1986. So, you stfu. Trailer trash!
