I love Uniondale because of the diversity! It’s not as busy as the city but there’s still enough going on to keep busy and occupied. Affordable living, close schools, and my favorite part is that it’s not too far from the mall.

I've been a resident of Uniondale for 6 years! I truly enjoy the neighborhood I live in because all my neighbors look out for one another and are very considerate. For example, if someone forgets to put out or put back their garbage bins on trash day, someone else will do it for them.
Uniondale is not the best place to be in New York, but it is far from the worst. As a New York suburb, housing/rent here is higher than expected but is not far from affordable. The town has more to offer along the main streets that are Uniondale Ave. and Hempstead Turnpike., especially with the Nassau Coliseum and Roosevelt Field Mall nearby. However, Uniondale has long struggled with variable amounts of crime and violence in the less populated streets, and continues to be a problem among the poorer parts of the neighborhood in recent years. The local police aren't much help in that regard either, however the local area is notably diverse, with people of different cultures and races living amongst each other and minding their own business. I wouldn't recommend living here if you are not a NY/Long Island native, to those who are if you find a decent home here I won't recommend as a first choice but if you've been used to living in a more urban area Uniondale would be a better choice.
