Great place to live. Safe for bike rides and walks around the neighborhood. Good quality public schools and private schools as well. Taxes are a bit high but for all of the things offered by the town locally it is definitely worth it to live here. My only complaint are the roads are kind of bad but otherwise this is a great place to live!
Centrally located on Long Island and minutes from both the LIE and Northern State Parkway. Great schools and near everything you need - shopping, supermarkets, restaurants, etc.
Melville is a great place to raise a family. It's very safe and the schools are also great. Everything is about 5-10 minutes away such as the mall, drugstore, gym,restaurants,gas stations, and schools.
