Lawrence, New York is a semi-small coastal community in Nassau County. It is located in the town of Hempstead and shares a border with the Queens neighborhood in New York. Lawrence is a family-friendly community with good public schools, low crime rates and plenty of room to run. It is a solid, stable community with predominantly traditional single family homes and high rates of home-ownership. Being a coastal community it is nautical in nature with waterfront scenery and activities not to mention the nautical history. Lawrence is a rich community both economically and educationally. It is wealthy in comparison to state and national economic standards and nearly 76% of the adults hold four-year degrees or higher, which is more than triple the national average. It is somewhat diverse ethnically and racially. English is the primary language of the community, however, residents speak a variety of other languages include Hebrew, Spanish, and others.

After the arrival of European settlers the area that would one day be Lawrence, was farmland. The community is named after the Lawrence brothers who acquired land in the area and developed it beginning in the 1850s. The brothers developed it as an area to accommodate the wealthy and famous from New York. They built a train station, which still operates today at Lawrence Avenue. Next, they built the Rockaway Hunt Club, roadways, a hotel, drainage and even curbing. Many of the community’s large homes were constructed as summer homes for the wealthy. Lawrence has to continue to grow over the years and now beyond mansions and summer homes it also features smaller homes in more modest developments.
