Crime & Safety
Bethpage is known for its famous Bethpage Black golf course at the Bethpage State Park, but it is so much more than that. The history of this small town goes back to the 1850's. To live here is really to have the feel of community. We are a diverse group of people who in times of need all pull toghether to help one another. The way it should be. There are lots of things to do in Bethpage, The Bethpage State Park for golf, bike riding, picknicing, hiking, polo and ball playing. The Bethpage Community Park for indoor ice skating and multiple pools in the summer, tennis, handball and a skate park. There are lots of stores, restaurants and community events going on year round. It is a great place to visit and an even better place to live!
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'.
