If you live in any of these eight towns on Long Island then you’re among the luckiest people in America, as they have just landed on the list of the 100 best places to live in the country according to a survey released on Monday by Niche.
The list, the ninth consecutive, ranked 228 cities and 17,932 towns and neighborhoods. To compile it, Niche used federal data from the Census Bureau, FBI, Labor Bureau and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as reviews from residents.
Among others, factors considered are affordability, the local housing market, neighborhood diversity, the quality of public schools and walkability.
Nassau County is home to all the Long Island’s towns named on Niche’s Best Places to Live in America. That includes four towns on the Great Neck peninsula: Great Neck Gardens, Great Neck Plaza, Kensington and Lake Success.
Here are the lucky towns that made it onto the top 100.
Great Neck Gardens (10)
Great Neck Plaza (13)
Lake Success (55)
East Williston (82)
Old Bethpage, meanwhile, cracked the top 125, coming in at No. 117.
The overall Best Place to Live in America is Chesterbrook, Pennsylvania, which has claimed the title now for four consecutive years.
