Grew up in Jericho and still live here. Top rated school district, the town itself has a rich history. Just a seven-minute drive to the Hicksville train station, a 15-minute drive to the Roosevelt Field Mall, close to Cantiague Park and Eisenhower Park, the Long Island Expressway, the Northern State Parkway, Whole Foods, Starbucks, dry cleaners, 7-Elevens, banks, movie theaters, The Tilles Center for the Performing Arts, The NYCB Music Theater and neighborhood restaurants (including the famous Milleridge Inn). The only downside living in Jericho are the very high property and school taxes, the congested main thoroughfare route 106/107, and the virtually non existent night life in this town. Otherwise, it’s quiet and a great town to raise a family.

Jericho has a fantastic location: close enough to east-west/north-south highways, yet in breath-taking proximity to north shore country drives. We have a beautiful and well-maintained park and beach in Oyster Bay.
Our Whole Foods is unmatched. Other retailers and restaurants like Starbucks and Market Bistro are highly rated, in fact the entire shopping/eating array in Jericho has an upscale horticultural attractiveness. We are just a few minutes to Lifetime, a beautiful athletic complex nearby off Robbins Lane.
Schools are consistently rated the highest.
I'm glad to live here.
Young families cannot afford to live in Jericho. The home prices and property taxes are astronomical, and aside from the top-rated school system, there is not much to write home about the area. The Hicksville-Westbury towns that border Jericho are overpopulated, and Jericho itself lacks any kind of quaint town center. If you’re looking for an overpriced, overdeveloped area with a lack of suburban feel, Jericho may be right for you.
