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.

Visually beautiful. People and neighbors are relatively friendly. Academics in school system are good, although the quality of the schools are otherwise lacking.
