Garden City, New York is a medium-sized incorporated village located in the town of Hempstead in Nassau County. The village has six neighborhoods and is the 74th largest community in the state of New York. It is a decidedly white-collar community where over 95% of the local workforce hold white-collar positions. It is a solid stable community with high rates of home-ownership and low crime rates. It is family-friendly and features excellent schools, quiet streets and plenty of room to run. It is a highly educated community where over 67% of adult residents hold four-year degrees or higher, which is more than three times the national average. However, much of the local workforce is employed outside the community meaning that daily commutes are a necessary evil. Fortunately, the community has a variety of public transportation options so your car doesn’t even need to leave the driveway. The community is wealthy in relation to both state and federal economic standards and is somewhat racially and ethnically diverse. English is the first language of the community, but a number of residents do also speak Spanish or Italian.

The history of Garden City begins in approximately 1869 when millionaire Alexander Stewart bought a parcel of land with intentions to tenement housing and a proper community for Irish immigrants. Stewart spared no expense in developing the area for his people and the central attraction of the community was the Garden City Hotel. Stewart’s wife, Cornelia helped found the St. Paul’s school for boys and the St. Mary’s school for girls. The community was the site of Charles Lindbergh’s departure for his famous transatlantic flight from Roosevelt Field. From its humble beginnings, the community has grown and flourished taking in people from every nation and building something truly unique.

The community spans 5.3 square miles.
