I’ve lived in Freeport for most of my life and I absolutely love the vibe here. It’s definitely more liberal than most places on Long Island and that’s a plus for me but really Freeport is very diverse. It doesn’t matter what your background or beliefs, we kind of all live in harmony. It offers parks, a recreational center, a row of restaurants and bars on the waterfront along with boating and more. Furthermore, when Sandy came and destroyed so much, Freeporters came together and helped each other out. Freeport’s location is perfectly placed on the Island as well. It’s close to the city, and near the beaches. Lastly, I just want to make a comment on the fact that Freeport is being described as Urban and I wouldn’t quite describe it that way. It’s very much a suburb. My only complaint are the high taxes.

I grew up I Freeport. On the South Shore of Long Island, it has beautiful homes and very diverse. The people are very friendly and the schools are A plus. Low crime and close shopping centers. LIRR and the Meadowbrook Pkwy right there! Nautical Mile is one of the hottest spots on LI with restaurants and party boats. Omg, I could on about Freeport, but I think you got the picture.
I've lived in Freeport (north of Sunrise Highway) for 3 years and I enjoy it. The commute is about 45 minutes to NYC on the LIRR and I never have an issue getting a seat. The police have a physical, but not intimidating, presence. You will need a car (as you would pretty much everywhere on LI), but many areas in Freeport are walkable. I always feel safe. The apartment buildings are rather dated, but they're livable. Everyone is pretty nice and I've never had any issues. Other than Nautical Mile, not much nightlife outside of the summer months but RVC is right down the road. don't have children, so I can't opine on the school district, but overall, it's a great place to live.
