East Williston Reviews

2 reviews
Small suburban area that actually feels rural. We have no sidewalks! It's a little over 1 square mile of old homes. Each house is unique and everyone maintains their home and gardens. Close to NYC...but it has a little town with good restaurants.

It has a old town feel. Kids play in the streets, neighbors all look out for each other. It's close to the highways, parkways and railroads. You can walk into town to go out and eat at great restaurants.
