Lindenhurst can't be compared to ghetto wyandanch. Lindenhurst residents 18 and older have jobs and don't stand in front of storefronts with their pants on the ground with crackheads walking everywhere.

I also have disdain for that behavior and will not attempt to explain it. People like myself, did not participate in that sort of behavior. I left for college and never came back. Some of my friends have. Wyandanch is no Utopia, but it's not a Medford, Lindenhurst, or fill in the blank trailer-park community.

I do not deny that the element you descibe exists. But, it is not the overwhelming majority. The average Wyandanch resident gets up and goes to work. Their children go on to college, and lead normal lives. I know this, I am one of them. In spite of having a poor start in life, I am now a 6-figure income earner at Bank of America. I am not bragging, just stating the facts. I have classmates who have PhD's and MBA's from Wyandanch. They have degrees from St Lawrence, RIT, Albany, UNC, Maryland, Syracuse (yuk), Maine, etc... And that is off the top of my head.

There is an element that does stand on street corners. Just like there exists an element of meth-heads in your town.

Actually, I have a PhD and earn a 6-figure income. It is not likely that I could be considered retarded. I am categorically superior to you. Have an awesome day.

Beware of shore drive illegal apartment in Lindenhurst! Has a couple of apartments within his house with no kitchen, throws in a toaster oven on a counter has a refrigerator and tells you to wash kitchen dishes in the bathroom sink. Takes money and waits a couple of weeks and throws you out! Something needs to be done with these people who are taking advantage of people who cannot afford to put down a ton of security etc.

I had the mis-fortune of living in this horrible town for about 4 years. I have lived in many places on the east coast and Lindenhurst goes down as the trashiest of them all. I now live in Honolulu and hope that the next hurricane that hits will wipe this low life trashy town off the map once and for all. I hate you Lindenhurst and all the uneducated white trash low lives that make up your population. Mahalo

I know some things about people I grew up with. Like you know something about people you grew up with. So you are eith a self-absorbed ego maniac and not concerned with your friends and classmates, or you are a social misfit. Either one is fine with me.

Wyandanch is one of the worst places on Long Island along with Roosevelt, Hempstead, and Brentwood. Lindenhurst is just like West Babylon, Deer Park, Farmingdale, or North Babylon. This I Hate Syracuse guy is just really delusional probably from all the crack he's smoked growing up in Crimedanch.
Also Lindenhurst has Pat Benetar while Wyandanch has Rakim (does this impress anyone with class).
Also I Hate Syracuse how about you use actual statistics to site your claims.

I do not have to. I have lived in foster care in Wyandanch, Deer Park, Brentwood, Medford, CI, NB, and Dix Hills. I know good and bad towns. I still went on to college and did quite well.

What does ghetto mean. Wyandanch has its problems, of course. But, my experiences were, where we were very poor, I was with lots of friends who had fathers in their households, meals daily, and stability. I did not have that personally, so did that make me ghetto, or was I able to recognize where I needed to be to have greater comforts. What makes a town 'ghetto' I ask. And, why do we want to romantacize it?
