Hempstead for Newcomers
Hempstead has a history of deep seated rivalries. At one time, there was a North Hempstead and a South Hempstead; divided by loyalties to either the British Crown or the American Revolutionaries (we know who won that fight). Today, that old rivalry has long subsided but there is a new rivalry! It’s between the parts of town that have become Queens, and the sections that have remained Hempstead proper. But who are we to flame the fires of division? We'll leave that to Martin Scorsese. And rivalries aside, you’re going to love living in Hempstead, no matter which part of town you move to.
Speaking of divisions in Hempstead, this town has more villages than a Disney film. There’s Atlantic Beach, East Rockaway, Freeport, Island Park, Lawrence, and Lynbrook, just to name a few. You want hamlets? Hempstead’s got your hamlets. There’s Baldwin, Bay Park, and Point Lookout, among many, many others. Point Lookout is at the end of a barrier island, making it a great place to watch the waves crash ashore. Chris Burke, of Life Goes On fame, was born in Point Lookout. We just thought that you might like to be on the lookout for some celebrities if you happen to land an apartment in this Hempstead hamlet.
Hempstead's astonishing patchwork of villages and hamlets, reminds us of one of those Russian dolls that contain even more Russian dolls. With so much to choose from, we’re sure that there’s an apartment in a neighborhood in a hamlet in a village in a town in a city called Hempstead with your name on it! Take a gander at what Hempstead has to offer, within and without, here.
Hempstead's Got It, So Bring It

Sure, there are thousands of ways to combat boredom in New York City, but Hempstead has a knack for keeping its citizens entertained. The city likes to brag about its access to natural beauty, if only because New York City doesn’t have too much of this. (It's all about finding your niche you know.) In Hempstead, you can visit Norman J. Levy Park and Preserve, which has 52 acres of fresh water habitat and ample opportunities for kayaking, hiking, and picnicking.
Want to spend the day indoors? Here's an idea: The Long Island Children's Museum. There are all sorts of exhibits here, including a permanent one that helps kids learn about how the body works in the grossest way possible. The exhibit is called Grossology and it sure is. You've got to capture kids’ attention, after all.
Continuing in the museum vein, why not visit the African American Museum on North Franklin St.?
