I lived in Hempstead for more than a decade and it was nice growing up in the neighborhood. The schools have a lot of spirit and brightness from the students and teachers. The town itself is also very diverse and also very busy during the day, so it never feels dull since it's always lively in Hempstead.
Hempstead is a big community that is slowly becoming more diverse, however the district is very troublesome. The streets are not properly taken care of and the are is very run down. Many of the stores in this area are unhealthy and fast foods that are the only resource. The schools are interconnected, however some of the staff are not encouraging to the students or make them feel like they cannot achieve their dreams.
Hempstead is a very misunderstood neighborhood. I've met people that will stick with me for a lifetime but the neighborhood could be better. All the poverty and no guidance towards young people is what makes it hard to live in this neighborhood. Growing up here teaches you realties of life quickly and makes you go through things that kids/teenagers/young adults don't normally grow through.
I like how there are stores in the center that I can easily walk to. There is a lot of violence here so it is not always safe to be on your own. There are also a lot of homeless people who have nowhere to go. I have lived here since I was 9 and I have always been catcalled and at one point I was even followed. The street I live in is mostly safe but if you go down the block there is a lot of gang activity.
I really enjoy the place where I live. My avenue is really quiet for the most part. Besides that, I really love it here. There are great restaurants nearby. the food is very delicious. They have delivery and sit-in services. However, there are a few cons to the city. Though the area is quiet, sometimes there are loud motorcycles passing through. The roads are not that great. It not really that safe to walk at night. I have heard of a few incidents that college students getting robbed.
Lived here for a while and it's a suburb, but at what cost. Great food, the roads are terrible. Not great for taking walks at night but it can be fun.
The town has a decent park with good people. Some parts of Hempstead can be a less clean than others but it is in no way a bad town.
I grew up here and it is my home. I have easy access to public transportation and convenience stores almost every 3 blocks.
Hempstead has the worst school district, is not diverse (it's only black and spanish living there for the most part) how is that diverse? It is god awful. I'm a person of color,I went to Church there my whole life, had relatives that lived there and know it well. It's been my entire lifetime and counting that the schools are the worst in the COUNTRY. If you want a good education, diversity and safety, live elsewhere or run for office and make the changes. It needs major help and funding.
Hempstead is a great culinary town. There are many varieties of ethic food that I love to enjoy. What I would like to see changed in Hempstead is a decrease in the amount of homeless citizens that are located in the town.
Although Hempstead's taking slow steps towards a better future, the town still struggles and is a very low-income neighborhood.
I have lived in Hempstead for the majority of my life, and I can honestly say. It's a salad bowl of identities and well-rounded people. There are many resources for people of color that reside in Hempstead. The schooling for its residences is beneficial when looking for work after school or continuing their academic journey.
Hempstead is a wonderful and diverse place to live. There are a lot of shopping centers and fun places to explore. There is something for everyone to do.
I have lived in Hempstead all my life and I believe it is overall a very nice place to live. There are a lot of good places to shop and get groceries in the area. Also a lot of fun activities and parks around too. Hempstead is pretty cool.
Received my 2020 town calendar in late February which means most residents have already started using a different calendar and this one will have to be recycled. How much waste will this cause and how much did it cost and why are dems so incompetent?
I love the community! There is a variety of shopping centers such as Roosevelt Field Mall, and there's amazing places to eat. The LIRR is close by and you can go to the city or other parts of Long Island from there!
I've been living in Hempstead for the past 12 years and I can't complain. Bus terminal and train station are walking distance. The library and the precinct are right across from me. I've never had any bad encounter.
