I have lived in Gibson/South Valley Stream for 27 years and am originally from Queens. It is a nice, quiet area. I don’t know who is “stuck up” as it’s a middle class community $ wise. The homes are expensive as is typical on Long Island. My kids cannot afford to move out. The Village is trying to encourage affordable housing but developers are greedy and don’t charge reasonable rents. It has been a diverse community for some time and the majority of us are respectful. Schools are good. Its a good place to live. We have same issues like the rest of the Island and creative positive newcomers should help! More businesses on Rockaway Avenue, more public transportation, and more affordable housing.

If you want to be away from the city but have quick access to it this is the town. Its a short commute to the city which is great! With every town comes with its goods and bad but its an amazing neighborhood with great schools and awesome opportunities, even for minorities and people with low income!
Well South Valley Stream is okay for new families with children. It has good public and private schools. The private schools hosts Catholics, Jews and others. For one reason or another crime is steadily increasing. If anything is to blame it might be that its a pricey upstart neighborhood. With homes ranging from 500K to close to 1M+. So property crimes are on the rise. Mostly thefts and assaults are what plagues South Valley Stream. The police could do much better with their response times. But this a quiet town filled with stuck up people.
