The Village of Rockville Centre NY has a walk score of 85 which translates to "very walkable". This score contributes to the quality of life for residents of the Village and increases the value of owning or renting in Rockville Centre.
You very well could be "car less" and still enjoy shopping, working, socializing and traveling. Having the Long Island Railroad in the center of the Village means having New York City a quick thirty-five minute ride away.
This walk score is enticing for seniors who are contemplating down sizing and possibly surrendering their driver's license.
Another draw is NYC residents who are considering Suburbia but don't wish to see the sidewalks rolled up at 10:00 p.m.
