What is negative about Arverne? There are beautiful, renovated homes priced reasonably. It is near the Ocean and the Bay for swimming, fishing, boating. There is a whole new development of one and 2 family homes in the $600,000 price range. Those houses are really beautiful and brand new. The taxes are low. The air is fresh, the shopping is new. The A train provides cheap transportation into the city and there are plenty of buses. The connections to Brooklyn are excellent and it is beautiful. What could be bad?
