<quoted text>my bad it has a higher crime rate than 94%* of new york and a higher crime rate than 86% of all towns and cities of all populations in the whole country. It also has alot of stolen cars, your chance of becoming a victim is 1 in 390. Your chance of becoming a victim of rape,assault or murder is 1 in 172.
This is a number that is not plausible. The highest murder rate in the world is 1 in 1000 and it is found in Jamaica. Now you make me question all the things you say. Still a good conversation ...

Lindenhurst High Crime
Lots of drugs
High Welfare Rate
hundredes of illegal apartments and unreported IRS income in this area.
Lindenhurst is a SLUM
High crime? Thats why if u look it up lindenhurst crime is lower than over %51 percent of the country, n also lower than %65 of new york. If u wanna see a slum go to new orleans,detroit, east st louis,north memphis,newark,brownsville ny. Parts of long island that are "ghetto or hood" are hempstead, freeport,roosevelt,wyandanch,p arts of copiague n west babylon, north bellport,central islip, brentwood,mastic. Lindy doesnt compare to any of these places.

Contrary to popular belief, most of Freeport isn't the hood. It's only most of the parts near the LIRR tracks which are ghetto. This part is where the projects/section 8/low-income/illegal alien/baby momma/gang crap is located.

- Southern Freeport (known as Nautical Mile)- Is mainly nicely kept mid-sized to smaller waterfront properties. Crime is very rare.

- Northwestern Freeport looks identical to ritzy Garden City (just with a totally different ethnic composition than garden city). A lot of large size colonial houses. Probably one of the most attractive parts of SW Nassau County.

So, is all of Wyandanch a ghetto? By the HS and Middle School? That entire, where it is poor is actually quite nice. Hard working folks with goals like everyone else.

Lindenhurst is a lower level white area with some mixed blacks mixed in. I agree abanded cars all over. Boats parked in streets all over shany-town, street are in poor condition, schools are bad, Very depressing town Swindlehurst.
Actually lindy has literally a %1.65 black population and all schools are in "good standing". Also it is a higher income level than the average household in america and new york as well,so just cause some cars are abandoned on a couple roads makes it shanty? Hahaha when i go thru lindy all i see is 3 story houses with nice cars nice paved roads lots of open stores so maybe your talking about a different lindy

I agree with you. I used to live in Lindenhurst. I had to escape. What a h#$lhole!!!!!! I am sick of the folks who are renting rooms when it's zoned as a single family dwelling. Btw, are you single? I love a man who reports these people! Lmk.

Damn straight I'm hardworking and I will report everyone that puts in illegal apts and rents rooms!I'm tired of the freeloaders in this town and I'm a 45yr old resident from a a family that resided in this town for over 70yrs. This town is turning to trash and it's time to clean it up!! Start with that village hall the worst we ever saw and Ive seen the corruption of Matherson! Then move on to the town! Enough!

I happen to personally know alot of those lowlifes in Lindy. My life was normal until I moved there & met the scum of the earth. Drug addicts. Child neglect. Alcoholics. Look at all the bars. You have to.actually move away & come back years later & thats when you realize how trashy the South Shore really is. I mean is that hard to make store fronts look nice? Put some pretty awnings up. God Knows you all pay enough taxes. I'm so glad I'm gone. I almost got stuck in that hole. Love my Palm Trees & crystal blue water.

Bergen Point sewer plant is in West Babylon, not Lindy & I'm just curious,why didn't you lock your doors after being carjacked once? Believe me, I'm not a fan of Lindy either. I am proud to say I am a former resident & I think most of the south shore is trashy, but I have never heard of anyone being carjacked 6 times in one town. I would think that would've been on the news, just saying. Can I ask what they are spending all your taxes on because when I come home for a visit to see my Mom on the North Shore & then take a drive to the South Shore, I don't see where all your tax dollars are going. My taxes in Fl $800 a year & my town blows away most towns on the South Shore. The store fronts & landscaping are gorgeous here. The beaches are immaculate & the streets are clean. You are all paying approx ten grand a year, for what? It looked horrible the last time I was there 2 years ago. I am so glad I left. No offense to your carjacking, but 6 times in one town? I keep up with the Long Island news & never heard of anyone being carjacked 6 x's in one town. I dont even think Lindy is even known for that. Its known for a whole list of other problems, but carjacking? Was it at gunpoint? Just curious. No offense. I will say i liked what they did at Tanner Park. That was nice. Plus I always get me some Momma's Pizza when i go up North. Nothing like N.Y Pizza or New Yorkers. Just gotta watch out for the bad sections. I dont miss Long Island at except for my Mom. I was paying 6 grand on my homeowners taxes 12 years ago there & it looks worse now with the taxes higher. Love my Palm Trees & Tiki Bars, not slum bars. Sorry.

Back in the day, Lindenhurst was a great place to grow up -- you could ride you bike from any neighborhood to "town" to get anything your mother wanted. Like many small villages on Long Island, the entitled moved in and did not give back to the spirit of sustaining the mechanism that kept it afloat. Lindenhurst of the past is just a ghost of what it's become. What a shame.

From anything I have seen, lindenhurst is a nice town. Hearing it called a ghetto makes me cringe at how naive and judgemental some ignorant people are.

What has and is currently happening to Lindenhurst is indicative of the fate of every working-middle class town in America...the financial resources are simply not there any more to maintain the suburban sprawl that most entitled Long Island communities are accustomed to...so what happens is that those that are able to leave, mostly to the "tax havens" of the South, or are stuck here getting gouged by local governments hoping that we will continue to pay taxes until the bottom falls out...the era of cheap gas is over and so goes the suburbs...I have been raised in Lindy most all of my life and yes the quality of life has decreased but that has been the case for most all working class communities on the island...in 50 years Long Island will have enclaves of rich guarded estates and the throngs of poor that will ultimately serve them...part of them problem is that these white communities that have fled did not stand up and resist the terrible government waste and gentrification that eventually epitomized our socio-economic life today...ultimately anyone that blames welfare moms, immigrants or white trash partakes in typical scapegoating that ignores the corrupt political system and corporate interests that have destroyed LI life...what is left is to create a Long Island that is self-sufficient, less dependent on the vehicle and develop strong independent communities centered around local business...I'm very surprised that the local Green or Tea Party hasn't formulated a real cocrete tax plan that reforms the tax code to provide amnesty for lifelong Long Islanders to provide incentive to stay here...you want to keep your quality people within the community....food for thought

I'm from wantagh and have been living here for five years now. I have to say it is not at all like described above. It is not as nice as Wantagh but not too far behind. It is only getting nicer. There is a nice village area, train that gets you to the city in under 1hr good school district. It's a blue collar white town that is affordable and safe. Be real people.
You are so right, this idiots talkin and making shit up wtf, the name doesnt even match the town lmaooo wooooowwww
