a village in rockland county, new york. Has mostly Hispanic people in it but there is a handfull of Black and Irish people too. Many rocklanders consider it to be one of the more "ghetto" towns in the county, which is both true and not true. There are many areas of haverstraw that are working class and have crime, but there are also some nice parts of the village (like the bay, its very beautiful, and the houses/apartments there aint so cheap either). It is located right off the coast of the Hudson River at its widest point.
Rocklander #1: Wanna go chill in haverstraw this weekend?
Rocklander #2: Sure, we can meet up with a friend of mine who lives there.
neighborhood in new city, ny. it (along with the new city gardens, downtown, etc.) is one of the few neighborhoods in new city that isn't filled with jappy rich spoiled brats living in huge mansions. in fact, the new city condos consists of mainly small-sized 3 level townhouses. It is also very diverse in races and ethnicities. It has alot of russians, blacks, and italians and is a lower-middle class neighborhood that lacks spoiled brats. it is also walking distance from all the shops and cool places to chill in new city unlike the rich side where you have to drive to get to town.
kid 1: I'm going to friends house in new city today.
kid 2: So you're going to a rich, stuck-up person's house
kid 1: no, he lives in the new city condos.
