A small town of Long Island,NY where most of the people are layed back and enjoy the magic of marijuana.It has a large Jewish population and they will not hesitate to bust a cap all up in your ass. West Hempstead is also the origanal home of the New York Nets now known as the New Jersey Nets. The Nets would play in a large gym now known as Island Garden. It was the first professional home for Julius "DR.J" Erving. Basicly WH reps the sett so dont hate.

Pretty chill town. For all the stigma about Long Island, West Hempstead remains a down to earth, middle class American Town. The people are generally friendly and every now and again come together for Festivals next to the town's landmark duckpond. West Hempstead is one of those places where you can expect Block parties, Fireworks on July 4th and heated little league baseball. The library also has swastika shaped study carrels, weird for a town with a substantial Jewish population.
