Nassau Reviews

1 review
Great place to live and raise a family. Real estate and school taxes are a bit on the high side. Residents range from blue collar to professional to upper class people. Neighborhoods tend to be diverse with some being more diverse than others. It's a place to call home and it serves it purpose for suburban living with close proximity to the city. Crime is low compared to other parts of the country but does have it's pocket of areas that you would not see people walking the streets alone. Some towns (incorporated villages) are policed by their local police departments. These towns pay higher taxes for this luxury.
