What Renters Like and Dislike About Valley Stream

There is a side LIRR that you can take to the Rockaways or into NYC. There are local places to eat different cuisines.

Neighborhood has malls nearby, access to public transportation, close to city and much more. It's quite and safe to raise family. Many grocery stores nearby.

The things i like most about the neighborhood is the fact that it is a quiet neighborhood. The public transportion to the city is quick and timely.

My neighborhood is very diverse which is one of the reasons why I love it. I love going to the park with my family.

There is a beautiful park and man made lake. There is a community pool, as well. In addition, there is a great 4th of July concert and fireworks.

We have a beautiful park with a lake and a town pool. It has supermarket in walking distance and I like to take my grandchildren to the pool in summer
