Excellent town. The schools provide various opportunities for students to explore their talents and for academic achievements. There are various shops along Montauk Highway, beautiful parks, the train stations are also very close to residents homes. Bus schedules are posted and mostly come on time. I would like to see more diversity among the races in West Babylon. There are various bodies of water near West Babylon that provide for ship travel, or even summer beach memories. Very quiet town. Fairly safe. Prices around here are fairly high on the downside. There is a lot of volunteer opportunities and a lot of activities to do around the town. Some of these activities include volunteering in the fire department, library, going to the gym, or even taking music lessons.

Excellent! Great people, good school district, big library, after school and extra help programs available, community participation and activities... Amazing town!
West Babylon is a town that is friendly and well kept. This town has every kind of store that one would need nearby, such as restaurants, supermarkets, shopping centers and banks. West Babylon has great schools and parks nearby for families. Its not too far or close to the beach as well as private beaches. You feel very safe here because the police station and fire department are nearby and respond quickly. Its a town great for families and young adults. There is lots of public transportation as well as places for the younger crowd.
