I can tell you that after spending any amount of time living in East Patchogue, you will be amazed at how bad the school systems are. I mean as an educator, they make it so hard to provide for our local students with these poor budgets as well as improper planning. I do love the fact that I am employed, however.
Knowing that, you must understand that all is not lost. There is plenty to do in East Patchogue. I know of a lot of areas of interest near the Social Security office that will blow your mind. Thinking of a master plan means that a quick trip to the lake by Holbrook Road is all you need.
I can sustain myself off of McDonalds and Starbucks, both of which we have. I know it isn't a popular opinion, but knowing how close everything is, means that all you have to do is hop, skip, and jump to your next box chain store!
