South Farmingdale
No need to take quick showers in South Farmingdale! The area has had its own water district since the first half of the 1900s.
No need to take quick showers in South Farmingdale! The area has had its own water district since the first half of the 1900s.

South Farmingdale is a small, quaint town often confused with Farmingdale, which is why many residents simply omit the "South" and say that they live in Farmingdale. South Farmingdale is, however, separate from the Village of Farmingdale and a census-designated place in its own right.

Moving to South Farmingdale

Covering an extremely commuter friendly area of just over 2.22 square miles, South Farmingdale counted a population of 14,486 during the 2010 census. It doesn't matter whether you specify "South Farmingdale" or "Farmingdale" as your postal address, as both areas are served by the same post office. The same is true for the school district and library, but arsonphobics can be rest assured, South Farmingdale does have its own fire department, with very capable firefighters ready to act at the smallest hint of smoke. Farmingdale got its name from a general store, which was run by land developer Ambrose George back in the 1800's. Finding places to rent in South Farmingdale, NY may be a bit tricky, but if you do your research well and prepare for your viewing appointments, you should find your dream pad before you know it.

Pointers for the Hunt

Rental apartments in South Farmingdale are not very abundant, according to the 2010 census data 88% of the hamlet is occupied by property owners, which means there are not a lot of housing units left for prospective tenants. If you have your heart set on a studio apartment for rent, you will have to start praying for a miracle, as these units are especially rare. You will very likely have to settle for something different than you had in mind, so be prepared to lower your expectations and don't be overly critical.

Strive to Impress

Remember that your first viewing appointment is not all about finding an apartment that impresses you, but you have to equally impress your landlord or agent to make them want to entrust their property to you. Treat the appointment as a job interview and convince your landlord that you are the perfect tenant with your good manners, great supporting documents and fat security deposit cheque. You don't have to sharpen your claws to physically fight off other puppy-eyed competitors; all you need to do is sell yourself to the landlord.

Cost of Rent

Although South Farmingdale is an urban area, most properties in the hamlet are either 3 or 4 bedroom units (respectively 47% and 37% of all housing units). There are, however a couple of small apartment complexes, but you can expect to pay a pretty penny for premier apartments. As a result, the average rent in South Farmingdale is statistically very high (52% higher than the National and 14% higher than the New York average). If you don't already have a family, you may have to consider sharing a house and splitting the rent if you are determined to live here.

Cost of Living

Brace yourself. It is obvious that the relatively high rent would affect the cost of living in South Farmingdale, but this hamlet also scores fairly high in all other categories. Groceries, health care and transportation are all more expensive than what other Americans pay, chasing the living costs up to an amount that is 43% higher than what you may be used to. The trade-off is however totally worth it, as South Farmingdale is a lovely place to live in.

Life in South Farmingdale

Shopping / Eating Out

As this is mostly a residential area, South Farmingdale doesn't have a downtown or main shopping area. For some quick grocery shopping, Stop & Shop, Pineda Grocery or Compare Foods on Main Street are more than adequate. Nassau Mall is also only a couple of minutes' drive away. If you have stomach problems (of the rumbling type) a couple of great restaurants, such as Rosemarie's Pizzeria and Restaurant and Wing Hing Kitchen are sure to please your palate and fill your belly.

Recreation

If ball sports are your thing, Allen Park is the place to be as it boasts several basketball courts, handball courts, tennis courts, soccer, football and lacrosse fields as well as baseball and softball fields. For the less active, the park also has a lovely picnic area where you can simply relax and enjoy soaking in the trees, blue skies and other sportsmen. Golf lovers and those who want some more adventure or space could drive to Bethpage State Park, just north of South Farmingdale's boundaries. If your two legs are your pride and joy, there is an epic walking trail at the Massapequa Preserve just south of the hamlet where you could put them to good use.

Getting Around

Buses do run through the area, but most residents prefer taking the car to where they need to be and a smaller percentage commute using the train. On average, people around here don't take longer than 30 minutes to get to work.

South Farmingdale is a great place to live and very centrally located. If you are lucky enough to find an apartment here, you will never be sorry about making the move.

If ball sports are your thing, Allen Park is the place to be as it boasts several basketball courts, handball courts, tennis courts, soccer, football and lacrosse fields as well as baseball and softball fields. For the less active, the park also has a lovely picnic area where you can simply relax and enjoy soaking in the trees, blue skies and other sportsmen. Golf lovers and those who want some more adventure or space could drive to Bethpage State Park, just north of South Farmingdale's boundaries. If your two legs are your pride and joy, there is an epic walking trail at the Massapequa Preserve just south of the hamlet where you could put them to good use.
