One of the few ghettos that got hit hard in Long Island,New York. Mostly inhabited by African Americans and Hispanics. One of the few towns on Long Island that can be considered "Hoods".I have walked through this neighborhood...I don't like to illustrate my own imagination with someone elses...the neighborhood is mostly houses,some public housing can be found on the west side of the neighborhood,Walking down hempstead tpke you see alot of African Americans. Take a walk down one of the sideblocks, what you will 50% most likely see on each block are boarded up houses,urban Blight,although there are some very nice well-moderate kept houses. It is very populated although,which keeps the "isolated areas" off guard...many mexican,puerto rican,el salvadorean,african american gangs flashing there colors...it is just like any other poor,drug infested area. As long as you mind your own business,they should mind theres. Don't believe all the hype.
