The village of Hempstead on Long Island. It is one of the few neighborhoods on Long Island with a black and Latino majority, and borders the towns of Uniondale and Garden City (which is the complete opposite in terms of economic status).

Hempstead is where Hofstra University is located. Famously the birthplace of Prodigy from Mobb Deep.
Rich guy: Hey, I have to drive through Hempstead tonight in my Corvette. Wanna come?

Friend: Not unless you got an army with you.

This is a dangerous fuckin town outside of Garden City and Rockville Centre. The people who live there are pissed off at Garden City all the time becausr black people choose not to live in our town and they act like its our fault. They arent as wealthy as us but we arent all fuckin spoiled so heres what there is about you. People from hempstead, ny have nothing better to do than:

1) Criticize white people from garden city becuase theyre jealous that we are more fortunate.
2) Do drugs, hang around, commit countless crimes, play basketball, and sit around.

3) extremely over exaggerate the amount of money that garden city people have.
"Yo i was in Hempstead the other day and we did nothing but rob convenience stores and walk around with a basketball and watch garden city kids on there 8 million dolla bikes nigga."

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.
