Hi Larry, greater Westbury is a large area that has many sub-areas within it, i.e., Westbury Village, New Cassel, Salisbury and Salisbury Estates. Westbury Village has the highest taxes because you are paying additional Village taxes. The taxes in all other sections are more or less comparable with the exception of Salisbury Estates where the taxes tend to be higher than Salisbury or other parts of Westbury. The higher tax rates in Salisbury Estates are due to the overall higher price in homes and the type of homes. The Estate section has more Split style homes, many of which are brick/stucco or brick/siding construction whereas Salisbury has more Cape Cod style homes that are typically strictly made of siding. I am a resident and know the area extremely well, if you would like to learn more about the area and the different home styles, etc. I would be happy to help you.
