the article is old, from 2007. The apartments that the young man lived in were totally rebuilt they are beautiful and people are pround to live there. the private homes are lovely, well kept, and its a beautiful area. It straddles two school districts, I am not sure where the line is but I believe most of the private homes go to Great Neck and the apartments attend Manhasset. Take a drive and check out Spinney Hill I think you will be pleasantly surprised. I live very close, never even gave it thought, I was shocked to see your questions, and I never saw that article before. continue looking in great neck, its a wonderful place to live.
