I love the location because highway and stores are nearby and pretty much everything else. Some streets are quiet. I hate the school system in this town. There's no good public school for kids. If you reside in Amityville and wants a good education for your kids, you must enroll them in private school which is extremely expensive. People are fairly nice. It has carribean food stores and many health food stores. A lot of families reside in Amityville. The North side is more welcoming then the south side.
Review Amityville
I have lived in Amityville my entire life. There is a lot of diversity here. Some areas are better than others. I definitely believe the school district could be better than what it is.
Moderate weather, but every couple of years there's a hurricane, also some flooding when there's heavy raining. So, flood insurance is through the roof
