Jericho is a diverse community that is proud of their school district and their students. Due to our standings we have many looking to buy and rent houses in our town. It's close to public transportation, and shopping.
My area is considered inferior to other areas on long Island in terms of attractions and places of interest. However, the suburban town is suitable enough to encourage at least some fun and recreation through the nearby shopping mall. The rising property taxes of my area, overcrowded schools and tumultuous public transportation methods have been considered some of the downsides of living in my area.
