Hicksville, NYPros: Location to NYC 40 minutes by train, same by car but the LIRR service is one of the best on LI (Two lines cross at Hicksville) and I worked in NYC for many years without ever buying a second car for commuting...
Cons: The downtown area was gutted when the LIRR elevated the main line leaving half of the main street Broadway with very little character and not much of a downtown compared to Glen Cove or Port Jefferson.
