Holstville is an excellent little town. In town, there isnt much to do however nearby Patchougue and Sayville have excellent nightlife’s with restaurants and thing to do galore. The town is very safe, with a police precinct and two fire houses within five minutes from the towns center. Sachem School District is also an excellent district for your kids to be a part of and grow up in. For thekids, there are parks and fields within 5 minutes of anywhere in town and there is even a zoo! The Holtsville Ecology Center is a zoo, a park, it has bike trails, and it even has a swimming pool. Holtsville is an awesome town and I’d recommend it to anyone.

Its not the city so there is less pollution which is definitely a plus however living on long island is very expensive which makes commuting more difficult they tie together.
Transportation and money, two important things when you live on long island. A lot of men and women who live on long island work in the city and taking the train from Ronkonkoma to Penn station monthly is not cheap a monthly pass is about 400 dollars. I think if the price of train tickets could go down it would defiantly make commuters more happy and less people would be broke on long island.
Holtsville is a wonderful town to live in! As a high school female, safety is key. Our town is very safe and kid friendly. There are tons of restaurants, activities, and stores just minutes from my house, which makes shopping, eating, and socializing very convenient. I was able to get a job at my local Dunkin' Donuts which helps to save for college and provide me with a little extra money to spend.
