We all know there can only be one True Town out of the Five. Which is it?
They are different, both socio-economically and in terms of yeshivish.
Far rockaway (yes I know it isn’t one of the five towns)
Whichever one the the ehrliche yid who started the 5T tzinius thread doesn’t live or work in.
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…
It makes Soddom look downright good.
The other three don’t come close.
I thought OP meant
Far Rockaway is not only not a Five Town, it is far. No matter where you are, it is far too far.
Zahavasdad, out of those, it is more complicated to decide, because only some are towns.
I happen to be a HUGE Hewlett fan. Just saying.
Lawrence and that’s it.
Long Beach in the house–think we used to be considered the 6th town–maybe 7th.
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 houses
Anonymous Jew, that means that relative to each other, they are all towns.
