By five towns you mean of course,
4. out of town
5. way out of town
My vote is for 5. No L”H meant against the other 4 choices.
Now that we have clarified the OP, carry on…February 1, 2019 9:11 am at 9:11 am #1672312

Far Rockaway is not only not a Five Town, it is far. No matter where you are, it is far too far.February 4, 2019 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm #1673969

Long Beach in the house–think we used to be considered the 6th town–maybe 7th.February 4, 2019 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm #1674016
Actually, none of them are towns. They are all part of the Town of Hempstead ( the oldest town in the U.S
, founded in 1644 ). Two are villages ( Lawrence and Inwood ) two ( Woodmere and Cedarhurst ) are hamlets the fifth, Hewlett, is a combination of villages and hamlets. The difference comes down between incorporated with its own elected officials ( villages ) or being unincorporated areas ( hamlets ) governed directly by the Town of Hempstead. Historically, Inwood never had much of a Jewish population, but it has picked up in recent years because of it’s ( relatively speaking ) lower price of housesFebruary 4, 2019 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm #1673992
Why?February 4, 2019 9:28 pm at 9:28 pm #1674033
Anonymous Jew, that means that relative to each other, they are all towns.
