Visually beautiful. People and neighbors are relatively friendly. Academics in school system are good, although the quality of the schools are otherwise lacking.
GARDEN CITY HAS A GREAT SCHOOL SYSTEM, FAMILY ORIENTED NEIGHBORHOOD, EASY ACCESS TO MIDTOWN MANHATTAN. CLOSE TO SHOPPING, GREAT RESTAURANTS, AND ENTERTAINMENT.
