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.
Uniondale is quiet city, located in the heart of Nassau County. With plenty of opportunities for work and school within Uniondale, as well as the neighboring towns, this robust city is noted to be a very family friendly neighborhood. Uniondale holds the famed Uniondale High School and Hofstra University, as well as many parks and fields suitable for all ages to enjoy. Aside from school and work, there are a number of avenues for nightlife and activities for all adults.
