Lake Success Reviews

2 reviews
The village of Lake success located within the community of Great Neck is an unbelievable place to live and raise a family for so many reasons. Our public school system is top rated, the train station is less than a mile away and 24 minutes express to Manhattan, we have a beautiful 18 hole golf course which is only a few thousand dollars a year for village residents. The golf club has a fitness center available to all residents which is only 50 dollars per resident per year, and a restaurant open to all residents. We have a beautiful pool club with 10 tennis courts for village residents as well, and an amazing summer camp program for children ages 3-7 . We have a private police department and trash pick up 6 days a week. I doubt there is another community with so much to offer in the tri-state area and taxes are relatively low considering what you are getting!
