I have lived in Garden City my entire life. It is a great family friendly town with a great school district and plenty of opportunities for kids to learn and to grow up and succeed. The downtown offers plenty of options for food and things to do and is extremely lively on a nice day. Garden City however is thought to be extremely expensive and is not very diverse in the people who live here. After leaving the town for school, I realized Garden City is a bit sheltered and is its own bubble.

Excellent place for family of professionals - great school, good shopping choices, a wealth of entertainment and sports choices. Great commute to NYC. Garden city offer exceptional value for quality of life. It is very safe place. The houses are beautiful. The residents are friendly. Teacher are really good. The real estate might be on the pricey side but holds value very well once you buy it.
Tight-knit community with strong education system, beautiful landscaping and a deep-founded blissful ignorance toward how racist we are.
