Being a member of a family that settled here in the late 1700 hundreds I have lived through the good and the bad .the good includes the schools, the small town attractions,the volunteer organizations etc.

The well kept neighborhoods etc. The bad includes the following. Too many craft antique stores ,not enough delis ,and a lot of new residents who move here and want change on almost everything. these are people who allow their kids to do whatever they please they can’t control them,,and they expect the old timers to go along with their way of thinking. In other words they know everything.

I like the town itself. It is really pretty and quaint and the decorate it very nicely during Christmas time. There are many parades, Earth Day fairs, the Sayville Summer Fest which is a really big fun carnival which food, rides, games, crafts, etc. There are many restaurants, most of which are American-style cuisine. But they are all delicious! There are great diners and bars for the young (and old people).
Sayville fits the description of being a small, aesthetic town because of its many small shops on Main Street and its location of being right next to the bay. As beautiful as the town is, there are not many events or places to hang out as a teenager. The most exciting places are probably the mini golf course which has seasonal hours, and the bowling alley which tends to be extremely expensive. The other downside to Sayville is its lack of diversity. I come from one of the few minority families in Sayville because many minority family cannot afford to live in Sayville because of how expensive a town it is.
