Blue Point Reviews

Blue Point, NY is a small town where everybody knows everybody. It's a quiet, comfortable town right on the water, perfect for raising a family. The school system is great with teachers that really know what they're doing, and have a passion for teaching. Everything you ever need feels right next door, and isn't hard to get to. The area is incredibly safe. The only downsides to Blue Point is it's very expensive to live in, and there's not much of a nightlife (the whole town gets dim around 10pm). However, living in the area for 18 years, there's nowhere else I can think of to rather call home!
Review Blue Point
It's changed much in the 48 years I've lived here, mostly for the worse, but it's still a nice place to live. Close to the ocean, nestled on the Great South Bay, good schools but ethnically it's homogeneous so students don't get benefits of diversity. Like most of Long Island, most people drive everywhere so there's too much traffic. There are several senior complexes, one garden apartment complex and mostly single family homes.
Growing up in Blue Point has been a great experience. I live exactly 1 block away from the Great South Bay. I have had the option to walk to the beach when having a hard time. The town is really small and there isn't a lot of crime as a result. It's a quiet and quaint area.
