Heavily-populated Hempstead is one of the three towns in Nassau County. This town includes 22 villages, including a village named Hempstead. If Hempstead were a city, it would be the second largest in New York, behind New York City.

Hempstead is located on Long Island, just east of Queens. It is just 25 miles from downtown Manhattan and 20 miles east of Brooklyn. With only nine miles to world-famous beaches, 11 miles to John F. Kennedy International Airport, and just 16 miles to LaGuardia Airport, Hempstead is perfectly situated to everything a New Yorker could want. Rent a Hempstead apartment and you’ll be swimming and enjoying the surf at Long Beach and the world-famous Fire Island, attending Broadway shows, exploring Central Park, visiting museums, and appreciating the shopping, restaurants, and nightlife of the New York area.

The lobby contains several murals that were painted in 1936, and the building is a beautiful example of Art Deco architecture.
