I have been a resident of Hicksville for the past 11 years. Its been great. At first, when I moved here it was so quiet as everyone minded their own business which I found odd since I came from Queens. But I got used to it and wouldn't want it any other way. It's a great place for transportation as the Long Island Railroad is very convenient. The town also has a great shopping space called Broadway Mall. It has everything from Target to Macy's to the movie theater and delicious food court. The one thing I would like to see a chnage in is its diversity. Over the years towns, the diversity of people has decreased and I would really like it to increase. All in all, I'm never leaving Hicksville!

I grew up in HIcksville; attended private and public schools growing up. With the exception of a few breaks in years, I've lived here for over 50 years. In the 70s there was about anywhere 8,000 to 14,000 more residents here than there are now. The community is quite diverse. The diversity of the cuisine and the quality of same is equal or superior to some of the most diverse neighborhoods in the 5-boroughs. Indian; Thai; Chinese; Mexican; Peruvian; Italian; Halal; Gyro; Hibachi; American Bistro; Pizzerias; most are family run operations. Plus Major chains. Centrally located. County & Town Pools and parks; Jones Beach. NYCity & Brooklyn easily accessible by LIRR. The residents take care of their property. While home prices are astronomical; you could do a lot worse on Long Island. But if you're the kind of community minded person who wants a community neighborhood, you should visit; drive around and be unafraid of talking to the people in your prospective neighborhood.
Hicksville is a good family friendly community. It has a very diverse population that makes Hicksville so unique. Its location is good because although it is a fairly calm town, it is just a train ride away from New York City. There are many types of food and activities to do in Hicksville that make this a good place for families to live!
