Westbury is a hidden gem in Long Island - I moved here just a few years ago and I almost wish other folks won't discover it! It's so convenient to get into the city (I commute to the city every day and my commute is an hour door to door!). It's also very close to ALL of the best shopping malls, restaurants and high ways. The schools are fantastic; my new doctor is a graduate of the Westbury public school system and couldn't be a more polite professional. I am starting to spike in young families and millennials moving into the area so I suspect home prices will start to spike as well. Love the area! It's such a wonderful, well located part of the island.

Diverse, comfortable. One side is very quiet and suburb like, other side is more up beat and busy. The Main Street, Post Ave., is filled with businesses, that display the diversity of the community. Here you will find a variety of restaurants, Italian, Mexican, Portuguese, Indian, Salvadorian, just to mention a few of the delicacies that one could encounter. At the town Piazza there are always community events that highlight the beauty of culture, through music, food, art work, etc. Train station is conveniently located, making the commute into NYC a bit easier. It is overall a warm community that continues to improve
I've lived in Westbury all my life, I love the fact that there is alot of diversity. Also, everything is close by you don't have to travel far. The town is low in delinquency there isn't many problems. I like living in my hometown the only thing I will change is the school. We don't have alot of resources such as textbooks, computers and equipment. The staff doesn't have alot of interest in the students education.
