A poor New York suburb that is part of the Poughkeepsie-Newburgh-Middletown area. Hopewell is a place where a large amount of people from the Bronx move to, because it is a close commute. It's also about 10 minutes from the city of Poughkeepsie. Hopewell is not a place for spoiled bratty kids. Kids that live in Hopewell New York have learned that if they want to make a bright future for themselves, then they are going to have to work their ass off. If the kids refuse to put in the effort, then they very well may end up drug addicted and poverty stricken. Growing up in Hopewell builds a lot of character, because no matter how far you go in life, you will never forget where you came from. That is a quality that will always keep you a very down to earth person.
Spoiled kid: "Immediately hand me my finest pair of Italian leather loafers so I can get to my fancy steak dinner!"
Hopewell Junction NY kid: "Yo lemme run up and grab my jordans, and we'll go get some Micky D's."
