Billy Joel's hometown has changed much since he grew up here. It's no longer a quiet, peaceful suburb. It has been undergoing neglent and urban decay, and the illegals have been drawn to it. There's trash everywhere, empty energy drink bottles and lottery scratch offs being the most common, left by these men loitering around. There's also bodegas popping up, and grafitti everywhere.
The train station area seems to see the worst of it, but it has now spread northward past the Broadway Mall. Many businesses now sit vacant, a casualty of a poor economy and a declining neighborhood. It seems the whole Central part of Nassau County, from here on to Westbury and south to Hempstead and Freeport has become a cesspool of urban decay, vagrancy, and illegal immigration. Why can't people open their eyes and see what is happening around them, and throw these politicians out of office?
