Mainly around family and work - in general its lower middle class up + coming indian community. I have heard hicksvill referred to now as "little India."
If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.
Well, it depends upon their situation. If they were single or newlyweds or senior citizens... the schools are not that well perceived anymore after the elementary level. The homes are good starter homes, but not some place that you would plan to retire. Hicksville has changed a lot since I grew up there. I love the town for sentimental reasons but would not move there myself if I was investing in a home.
