Southold is a small town. It has beautiful beaches and lovely people. There are few restaurants, but still delicious. The schools are small but great. Great community.
Small town, not enough opportunities for work. Housing is too expensive. School is good, but it's not a good place to raise a family anymore. You cannot survive.
