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.
