Like others have stated, Baldwin is a lovely place to live, however it truly needs the TOH to allocate funds to revitalize the neighborhood. I would like to see more restaurants, cafes, bars, shopping stores, etc. instead of nail salons and fast food chains. I often have to go to neighboring towns such as Oceanside or Rockville Centre as Baldwin is lacking a lot. Baldwin is a very diverse town that truly represents different cultures. I feel very safe and it is truly a lovely place to live. I would just like to see the abandon buildings being occupied by tenants that want to enhance the quality of living in Baldwin. Bring on Panera Bread, along with other quaint locally ownded restaurants and cafes.

I think Baldwin is a very diverse town. It is good in that you are able to meet a large variety of people with all different life experience but it creates a divide in the different areas of the town. The southern part of Baldwin is a little wealthier while the northern part has less money and is very commercial making some people feel unsafe at night. While there are many different restaurants and some small shops, I think the thing that Baldwin lacks most is a central area or a Main Street with nightlife, restaurants, and stores in one, family-friendly area. Baldwin would be a great town if it had this since it is very community centered and many people support the schools.
Baldwin is a great town where you can send your child to school and not worry about them receiving an education. To elementary to high school, Baldwin's school district is top-notch. For Baldwin to be great, they need to work on their innovation within the town to make themselves more business friendly. If more businesses are willing to branch out to Baldwin, this town would be perfect.
