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,
