    Bethpage Reviews

    My husband and I have recently bought a house in Bethpage, NY in the Plainedge School District. We live in a very quiet neighborhood, with very nice and welcoming neighbors. The convenience of living here is that everything is at an arm's length. You don't have to drive more than 3 minutes to get to a supermarket or even a restaurant. The small shops are one minute away from where we live which is walking distance and the whole town as a whole is a very tight warm community. The Bethpage library is one of the best because of the children's area. There are many different toys and activities for kids to keep them busy and they set up many activities during the week and on weekends. The parkways are also very close by to get to the main expressways so transportation is very easy. It really is a great place to live!
    Overall Bethpage, NY is the ideal neighborhood. Growing up in Bethpage I felt safe to walk home alone, even if it was later into the evening. This town is truly the center of the island. For example during Hurricane Sandy damage to Bethpage was minimal. The town takes care of matters such Sandy quickly and efficiently. We have an excellent school system with amazing teachers. Are you hungry? Bethpage has a wide variety of different cuisines to locally choose from! Chinese, Japanese, Italian and now Greek. Bethpage is a great place to call 'home'.
    I have lived in Bethpage since I was 1 years old. This town has allowed me to create memories and friendships that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Living in certain parts of Bethpage allows you to attend various schools. The part of Bethpage that I live in allows me to go to Island Trees school district. As a student here I am thankful this is the school I was sent to because I have various opportunities aligned for me in the community and school. Although Bethpage school district is probably just as amazing as Island Trees is, my school is a great help in allowing the students to get involved in events in the Bethpage community. Being from Bethpage and some of my family being from here too gives me a great feeling about this town and I cannot wait to raise my children here, just like my parents.
