Massapequa is a community of mostly one family homes, with nice size property and good schools. The Long Island Rail Road, as with all of Long Island is the transportation option for residents working in Manhattan, but a good number of residents work in Nassau County. There are job opportunities in virtually all fields, with industrial parks forming a large part of the landscape. Jobs in the engineering and marketing fields are good examples of jobs in Nassau County.
There are 6 elementary schools, 1 middle school and 1 high school in the Massapequa School District. On Long Island, unlike in New York City, going to school is like it would be in a small town. The control is not County wide, each community has complete control over the school system.

As for homes, this is a sample of what is available in Massapequa today.
A 4 bedroom cape cod for about $390,000. This will be an older home. A cape cod is a home that was originally designed as a one story home with 2 bedrooms. The attic in a cape cod can be converted very easily into bed rooms.
A 3 bedroom ranch home, with all rooms on one floor, will start at about $375,000.
A 3 bedroom hi-ranch will start at about $400,000. A hi- ranch is the same as a regular ranch house with the exception being that the living quarters are on top of the garage.
Another style of ranch home is the raised ranch, which is similar to the hi- ranch with the exception being that the garage is not under the house, giving more basement space, which in a lot of cases has been re modeled into a family room. The prices for a hi-ranch will start at about $420,000.
Cape Cods built in more recent years have more square footage, and while they have the same number of rooms as the older models, they will cost more. One like this will start at about $440,000.
A traditional 2 story colonial house with 4 bedrooms will start at about $710,000.
There are a great many styles of colonial homes available going all the way up to what can only be called mini mansions with 5 bedrooms, master suite, swimming pool, in other words everything that will sell for close to the $2,000,000 mark.
