Do you feel that you get your $ worth for the taxes that you pay?

Absolutely not.

I know people who have small houses on small properties and pay $10k annually in taxes.

I would say unreasonable astronomically high taxes are by far the number one issue that Long Island faces and the number one reason why people choose to leave long island.

Good schools,roads,and police. You pay for what you get. Move to the south if you want your children enrolled at a school with a 40% dropout rate and city police that earn 13$ per hour. It's called self-awareness and it is sorely lacking in this area of the country. Pleasure to pay these taxes with what I get in return:)

I disagree.

Go to most suburban places upstate and they have VERY low taxes, VERY good schools and very low crime.
