West Hempstead Real Estate

The hamlet of West Hempstead in the town of Hempstead, Long Island is located south of Garden City, east of Franklin Square, west of Hempstead village and north of Rockville Centre and Malverne. A convenient location and the fact that it has its own stop on the Long Island Railroad makes West Hempstead a good choice for commuters.

This quiet, unpretentious suburb offers reasonable home prices compared to some Long Island towns and villages. You'll find quiet streets lined with mid-century colonials and Tudors and newer ranch homes. There are also several new luxury rental apartment buildings here rare for this part of Nassau County. Developments like Metro 303 and West 130 offer the amenities of city living within a suburban community.

Commercial strips offering shopping and dining can be found on Hempstead Turnpike, Hempstead Avenue and Woodfield Road as well as in neighboring hamlets and villages like Rockville Center and Baldwin. South Shore attractions within a short drive include the Robert Moses-designed Jones Beach State Park, Belmont Park Race Track, Adelphi and Hofstra Universities as well as nearby Hempstead Lake State Park.

In addition to its convenient location, parks, shopping and proximity to beaches, a $10 million, 27,300 square-foot public library, which also serves as a community center, was completed in 2007. The Echo Park pool complex is open to all town residents and offers a seasonal outdoor pool, saunas and fitness rooms.

Hempstead Lake State Park, just to the south between West Hempstead and southern neighbor Rockville Center, boasts the largest lake in Nassau County. The park offers fishing in the lake and two smaller ponds, a picnic pavilion, ice skating, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, riding trails and a boat launch as well as tennis courts, playgrounds, basketball courts and a hand-carved wooden carousel.

West Hempstead offers easy access to the Southern State Parkway; it's 32 miles to Midtown Manhattan by car. Via the Long Island Railroad at the West Hempstead station it takes about 50-60 minutes to reach Pennsylvania Station. The LIRR also stops nearby at Hempstead just to the north and Hempstead Gardens to the south.
