Review Rocky Point
Not like it used to be!
I grew up in Rocky Point, NY during the 1950's through the early 1970's. I can see why so many people are leaving. Long Island is a mess anyway. I lived there mostly during the summer months though. I guess if you don't know how it was, you might not see the changes over the years. Most homes had no heat. Just a few fruit/vegetable pickers hunkering down for the winter with potbelly stoves. Some of the few residents were descendants of the original settlers. Rocky Point was a sleepy little beach town, beautiful and quaint. I left in the early 1970's and never went back. I wasn't my Rocky Point anymore. I miss the memory of how it was. Not how it is now. You can't go back.

A Peaceful, Inviting Place to Reside
I have lived in Rocky Point, New York for 12 years and I can really say that this is home now. We are considered to be a suburb of New York City, but you would never know by the hometown feel that you get when living or visiting here. Living in Rocky Point, New York is beyond peaceful.
My children have enjoyed growing up here. They can safely walk down the block, as crime is not really an issue here. In addition, we have neighbors that are kind and everyone watches out for everyone here in the local community. Both of my girls attend Ridge Elementary School and enjoy their experiences there.
The best areas in Rocky Point, New York are the quaint shopping areas downtown. This area has tons of local business to shop from, so when you shop and dine here, you are supporting local people. This is just a special area in my opinion and life is good here. I would not live anywhere else if I was given the choice.
