Moving to New York? Top 5 Reasons You Should Choose Long Island

There's many reasons we feel Lucky to Live Here, but these are our favorites.

1. Proximity to NYC

You can go from a quaint town to the epicenter of the world within approx 30min - 1hr. Pro tip: we call it "the city"

2. The School Districts

We have some of the best school districts in the country according to and U.S. News

3. Beaches & Boating

You have a choice of either the North Shore overlooking Long Island Sound to Connecticut, or enjoy the Atlantic on the South Shore. Whether you're swimming, boating, or fishing, you can enjoy the waters that surround, while never more than 30min from the coast! Pro tip: You won't want to miss the sunsets

4. Recreation & Leisure

Head "Out East" to the North Fork for vineyards/wineries, craft breweries, and more. Also enjoy the theaters, music venues, night life, parks, museums, and renowned restaurants across the Island! Pro tip: skip the Hamptons on the weekends, and try Fire Island instead (must try: rocket-fuel) 

5. Home Equity

Reasons 1-4 is why property investment is a solid choice! Suggested reports show property values rising year after year because of demand for housing being so high.
