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.
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 throughout the town. These dark areas are frequently littered with empty boxes of Natty Light on Sunday morning. But if you can't make it to the BP on Jericho, you can always hit up daddy's liquor cabinet to get through the night.
So if you're in the neighborhood, and you're looking for a good time (doesn't matter your age, college students often stick around long after they've graduated) hit up a dark field, A & S, or even those dirty-ass bars on Hempstead. You're guaranteed a good time, and even it's not, who's to say you'll remember in the morning.
Garden City was the only town in New York that showed up red in the last election.
