Typical NY street

All one sees of New York in movies and television is mostly Manhattan - skyscrapers, trash, crime, high finance, no families, no trees, and so on. But we discovered a completely different New York - Long Island. This felt very similar to Melbourne, albeit with more local regulations and controls over citizens' lives. More about that later.
This photo is a typical suburban street in Long Island. Lots of trees, nice houses, places to walk and play. And many people we spoke to have always been Long Island residents and don't see any reason not to be. We found parks, gardens, lovely family homes, lots of families, quiet streets and busy highways.
This was a very pleasant surprise.
