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'.
