Babylon Reviews

8 reviews
All Categories
Babylon is an awesome town with a nice village, however that village makes taxes very high. There are so many restaurants with great food and drinks I highly recommend Del Fuego, best margaritas ever! And the tex mex is to die for. If your not in the mood for Mexican kotobuki or masa are excellent.
Review Babylon
The place i spent most of my child hood is Babylon. Babylon is a beautiful town right off the great south bay offering an up to date bus station and train station which gave me the opportunity to travel all over long island, the bay provided me unforgettable summers clamming,fishing, and the chance to meet some pretty awesome people. Babylon has an exciting town and offers any adventures but if i could suggest something that would make it even better it would be to host a large circus.
My overall experience has been great. I moved here five years ago and have loved every second. There's a town right in the heart of Babylon with many different stores and restaurants. You can ride your bike along the water and watch the sunset by the docks. The beach is fifteen minutes away so summer is always amazing! I would choose to live here in a heartbeat! I expect that more people will choose to move here in the future
