GC is a town in western Long Island. It's an upper middle class, Republican-filled, preppy-kid haven. There isn't much diversity. In the Middle School, there are only two black students and three Asians. But there are Democrats. They're ignored and shunned during election time, but they exist.
Garden City is a major sports town. Lacrosse, football, field hockey, and track are among the most popular. Most of Manhasset is despised because it's GC's rival. All Manhasset v. Garden City games are well-attended.
One complaint that just about every normal person has is that all the "popular" kids think they are black. Especially the girls, who refer to their friends as, "their hoes." Saying that someone is "popular" is synonymous with "stupid, trashy, and slutty." They have a creepy obsession with Facebook. If you see a GC kid with over 400 pictures, they're wastes of your time.
Garden City has very few hard-working kids. But the ones who do work hard are labelled as nerds. If you're a nerd in GC, you're golden. The nerds are loved by teachers and get fantastic grades, which will most likely get you into a great college. The grades are very diverse, especially in the Middle School. You either get high 90's or low 60's. The stupid ones are usually the popular kids. Shocker.
The clothes tend to be very, very preppy. Ralph Lauren, Lilly Pulitzer, Abercrombie, Vineyard Vines, and Tommy Hilfiger are usually the ones that can be seen around the halls. All bags are Coach, Gucci, Michael Kors, or Chanel.
The "wannabes" are among the most prominent of the GC High monarchy. They're basically slaves. The nerds and normal kids find it hilarious when they're forced to "fetch" the Queen Bee's water. They want to be cool, but everyone knows that they aren't. They try to gossip and act bitchy, but it just doesn't work for them.
GC students are too coddled for their own good. The Middle School was built for wussies. There, you can hand in a project three weeks late without getting points off. It's very different from the High School, where students are given a rude awakening from the very start. Very few go to boarding school, since the High School is known for its fantastic staff.
Let's face it. Garden City kids are rich, and many of them are snobby. But there are some really great kids who live here as well. The only problem is that some parents are super protective and don't let their kids watch PG-13 movies until they're out of their house. Others don't care what their kid does, as long as it doesn't shame the family name. But if you're lucky to be nice, mildly smart, and have a good family, you have it made.
Garden City popular kids think it's badass when they swear. Don't be surprised to here someone curse off, then start giggling. Just ignore them, they think they're cool.
Some of the GC slang is "sketch," "beast," and "shwag."
Sketch: Some weird or stalker-ish.
Beast: Awesome, completely amazing.
ex. "You're beast at sports!"
EXAMPLE OF GARDEN CITY GREETINGS.
GC "Popular" Girl: Heyyyyyyy, bitchesssss! What's crackinnnnn?
GC "Popular" Guy: Hey. Lax, anyone?
GC Nerd/Normal Kid: Hey, guys.
A mid-upper class town in Eastern Long Island, famous for it's rich Roman Catholic Republican population and homogenous culture. If you see a man of color wandering the streets, you'll be sure to see a man in blue not far behind. The high school culture revolves around both the finest preppy styles (Lilly Pulitzer, Abercrombie etc.)lacrosse and football, with inordinate amounts of funds being provided for such luxuries as a turf football field while the school roofs continue to leak. If you dare to brave the mean streets of Garden City, you will see many a BMW, Mercedes and Lexus. Don't worry if you crash it drunk driving. Daddy will replace it. Be sure to check out one of the local parties, often complete with multiple kegs. Don't worry though. With all these parties students still find their way into Ivy level schools with a little help of their trusty pigskin or lacrosse stick.
Man, remember how hard we threw down in Garden City last weekend? I don't.
Really rich town in Long Island, NY. Very preppy and all of the kids there are freakishly good at lax.
He's from Garden City, so he's hot and good at lax
An upper middle class town located in the center of Nassau County, Long Island and known for its, Conservative, Roman-Catholic population. Students at GCHS are known for their work-hard, party-harder mentality, with many getting good grades, being sick at some sport, and then throwing down hard on the weekends. Many sport the preppy look, however their is a growing minority of skaters, goths, and emo kids who stick with each other, but generally everyone gets along pretty nicely. Some live in multi-million dollar plus homes (such as those on the Garden City Golf Club (snob hill), Stewart Avenue, and some in the Estates and Mott) but most live in normal sized 500,000 to million dollar homes on the East Side near Country Life, in the Esates, or in the mott.) Many of the adults are wall street traders, brokers, lawyers, business owners, or doctors. Kids tend to throw down either at a house party or in random outdoor locations. The smart kids and great athletes of gchs tend to end up at Ivy League or similar institutions (Georgetown, Boston College, Notre Dame, NYU, UVA, Lehigh, Bucknell, Loyola, Trinity, Colby, Bowdoin, Haverford, etc.) Other popular choices include Villanova, Fairfield University, and Fordham University. Some at GCHS are stuck up and can be mean but most tend to be pretty laid back and chill. The language of Garden City includes words such as 'shwag' and 'sketchy.' Most athletic recruits are from lax or field hockey, which produce many state champio...more...
Garden City is a simply a rich town. It is located in Central Nassau County on Long Island. As soon as you enter the town, you will know it. You will suddenly see Multi-Million dollar estates with several German Luxury Sedans Parked In The Driveways.more...
The kids who live in Garden City are extremely stuck up and think that they are better than everyone because their Dad is CEO of some fortune 500 company or plays golf with Donald Trump. The kids are very preppy. The least affluent Garden City kids teens Abercrombie and Fitch. Many Garden City teens wear Polo, Lacoste, and Burberry. The girls wear Juicy Couture and only carry handbags from Louis Vuitton, Gucci or Fendi.
It is extremely common practice for a Garden City HS teen, upon getting his/her license, to be given a Luxury SUV such as BMW or Mercedes. (I guess, they are more Like "Luxury Activity Vehicles") I go to GCHS, and one of my friends recently recieved a Range Rover Sport Supercharged (its like $80,000) and another recieved a new 5series BMW ($50,000) , another a Mercedes ML500 ($55,000). (I am recieving my dad's BMW X5)($58,000) Dont worry, if you crash your German Luxury Car, your dad WILL buy you another.
Garden City HS teens are also extremely good at sports, particulary lacrosse. Manhasset is the Garden City rival.
There is no diversity in Garden City. In Garden City High School, there are approximately 1200 students. Of those 1196 of them are white. The few black kids are excluded.
Garden City is a WESTERN Long Island town, as opposed to some posts defining it as an Eastern Long Island town: it is located a mere 15 minutes east of Queens, NY. GCHS is comprised of the spoiled teens who have always gotten what they've asked for, the jocks (guys or girls), the Masquer theater kids, the loners, skaters, goths, and geeks - but for the most part, their good upbringing has taught them to be polite and respectful. One won't have to go far in Garden City without spotting a Mercedes, as Long Island has the top-selling Mercedes dealership in the country. An unusually high percentage of graduating GC seniors progress into college, most often into Ivy leagues, whether it's because of sports or because of how hard they've studied. The village of Garden City is very safe, clean, and beautiful. The average house is now selling for about $1 million, as a house nearby just sold for that in the mott section and it is a relatively small house. Most people don't realize how lucky they are to live here until they leave.
Non-GC Friend: Wow, is that your car?
GC resident: Yeah.... so?
Non-GC Friend: Where are you from again?!
GC resident: Garden City....
Non-GC Friend: Ohhhh... that explains it.
The Village of Garden City is located in the middle of Nassau County, within the Town of Hempstead. It is notorious for its population of white, Roman Catholic, Upper Middle Class Republicans. This reputation contributes to the common misconception that Garden City is homogenous. This is false! There is a synagogue on Nassau Blvd, and at least 5 black kids in the high school! But let's not kid ourselves, it is a bubble.more...
The Trojan mascot is particularly appropriate for the high school due to the fact that a gross majority of students are sexually active. The middle school has become increasingly school spirited as the years go by, unwrapping their Trojan pride even on the weekends!
On another note, the high school parking lot in Garden City looks more like a BMW sales lot than anything else. In most towns, the older you get the nicer your car. In Garden City, once you graduate from Driver's Ed, even if it's on your seventh try, you're guaranteed a hot car.
A popular hang out for GCHS students is A & S Bagels on Hempstead Turnpike. There is a dark, shady parking lot adjacent to the 24-hour eatery, perfect for boxing out mommy's car. And don't worry, she won't notice, she's too busy at the Country Club. Even if she does notice, she'll just buy you Fabreez to get rid of the smell.
Other popular hangouts include The Sump, most playgrounds, Stewart and/or Stratford Fields and the numerous train stations scattered throug...
Affluent town where all the HS kids must drink pretty early. Yes, that includes everyone, not just the lax/football kids like in other towns. The "nerds" of this town drink everyone under the table once they go to college. My roommate used to live here and he's a total shitfuck. Rediculous shorts all the time and is somehow the star of our intramural lax team even those he's a weakling and didn't even play in high school. Go figure.
Dude, my roommate from Garden City never got laid in high school yet drinks like a champion, what gives?
