Best places to live on LI for jobs

When you share an island with nearly 3 million people -- many of whom take to the roads and public transportation at about the same time every day -- finding a home close to the workplace can feel akin to discovering a holy grail. But it's not so elusive: Living on Long Island puts residents close to employers in health care, technology and education -- three of the fastest-growing job sectors in the nation, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Some of the best communities with employment hubs include Hicksville, Stony Brook, Mineola, Hauppauge and Melville.
