I lived in Bellmore, NY for 18 years. There are certain aspects of the area that I liked, and certain aspects that I did not like. I liked how close we were to the beaches and any body of water, and I liked living close to friends and family. I also liked the short train ride to the beautiful NYC. However, I would not choose to live in Bellmore again if I had the chance. The people I lived around were very unfriendly and ungrateful. I currently live in Maryland and the people here are much more friendly than those of Long Island. Long Island is also becoming over crowded. Every time we visit, we are stuck in traffic no matter where we go. I believe that over time Long Island is going to become even more over crowded and a place that is not enjoyable to even travel to.

Over the past year, more crimes have been committed in the area. Many drug related crimes, some robberies, and some violence. Police are around, however they take some time responding to the area in need. I believe that with the rise of crime and drugs on the streets, that cops should become quicker to respond.

Bellmore is a very quiet neighborhood. Not much really happens in bellmore. There are a lot of families here that are raising children. A bad thing about Bellmore is there is not too much ethnic diversity.
