During the winter months, snow is likely, and temperatures are usually in the mid-20s. You’ll likely be bundling up, staying indoors, or at least shoveling.

Cost of Living

Like much of New York, Long Island has a high cost of living. You know that, though, if you are thinking about living in a true American dream city. You’ll love, though, that home values continue to rise especially if you plan to sell in a few years. There’s a positive! The US average on a standard cost of living index is 100.

Nassau County is also very affluent with larger communities that are rather wealthy.
