Baldwin, New York, Money Names 25th Best Place to Live

I’ve lived in Baldwin, New York most of my life (in two different houses on the same street), so, of course, I was happy to hear about Baldwin being named the 25th best place to live for 2007 by Money Magazine. I had been taking Baldwin for granted, dwelling on the negative, but whenever listing reasons for moving or staying, the perks always won out.Â

For example, my husband and I spent the past Saturday and Sunday on the beach (Jones and Robert Moses), both of which are within a half hour from our home. I am sure most native Long Islanders take it for granted that we are surrounded by beaches, and can arrive at numerous different beaches on both the south and north shore in short order. Having lived in Dayton for a year reinforced this, since most people I met never even stepped foot on a beach in their life.

Of course, there is a high price to pay for living on Long Island, but compared to the north shore, local villages, or other towns such as Rockville Centre (which is right on our border), Baldwin is more affordable property taxwise.  Baldwin is close to parkways and shopping. The Public Library has just been remodeled and updated. Baldwin High School is a national school of excellence. The loss of Nunley’s Amusement Park was a big blow, but we still have a bowling alley, movie theater, and Baldwin Park.

Baldwin is far from perfect, but for me, it’s home sweet home
