Examining the Benefits and Drawbacks of Living on Long Island

Last updated 5 years ago

Long Island rests just to the east of New York City, offering new real estate possibilities and standards of living. Is it worth it to move away from the excitement of life in Manhattan and into the suburbs? Read on to find out.

More Space to Spread Out
It is no secret that Manhattan apartments are often short on space. One of the biggest advantages of moving to Long Island is the square footage. When compared to the shoebox properties in the city, even the smallest houses on the Island seem like mansions. If you are tired of being cramped into a tiny residence, it might be time to call the moving company to help you get set up on Long Island.

A Longer Commute to Work
If you are still working in the city, you have to decide whether or not you want to extend your commute. Whether you take the Long Island Railroad or drive yourself into the city each day, you can expect to add significant time onto your travel schedule.

A Suburban Lifestyle
Who really needs to order Chinese food at three in the morning? City life is full of excitement and adventure, but it can get very tiresome after a while. If you are ready to slow down and enjoy the simpler things in life, Long Island has plenty to offer. With plenty of public parks, mom and pop shops, and all of your favorite chains, the island brings a new kind of lifestyle for anyone who is tired of dealing with the city.
