Hempstead Apartments

Rental apartments in the town of Hempstead, Long Island--one of three towns in Nassau County, the other two being North Hempstead and Oyster Bay--runs the gamut of housing options, from single- and multi-family houses to low- and mid-rise residential buildings to row houses to garden apartment complexes.


No surprise that there would be plenty of options in a town of more than three-quarters of a million people, 22 villages, and 37 hamlets, covering every manner of suburban living. In fact, Hempstead is the largest township in the United States measured by population, and the area's NY apartments can be found throughout the town's 142 square miles.


Life in Hempstead

Hempstead apartments are available, for example, in the villages of Valley Stream (where hometown filmmaker Edward Burns shot much of his semi-autobiographical movie The Brothers McMullen), the pretty Bellerose (founded as a "model community" in 1907 on 77 acres of gladiola fields), the family-oriented Freeport (home of the "Nautical Mile" of shops and seafood restaurants along the Woodcleft Canal), and Cedarhurst, one of Hempstead's famous "Five Towns".


You can also find Hempstead apartments in the hamlets of Uniondale (home of Long Island's only professional sports team, the NHL's New York Islanders), Seaford (a popular spot for fishermen, with its bay access), Levittown (the famous planned community that's widely regarded to be the model for all post-war suburban developments in the country), and the small, family-oriented hamlet of Merrick.


The village of Hempstead is a much smaller community as compared to the town of Hempstead, but still, with more than 50,000 residents, it still counts as the most populous village in the country. The village of Hempstead is also one Long Island's oldest towns, having been founded by English settlers in 1643.


Residents of Hempstead (whether from the village or the larger town) who commute into Manhattan for work for the most part enjoy ready access to the Long Island Rail Road, which has stations throughout the area and run trains into Midtown Manhattan's Penn Station. There are lots of parks in the town of Hempstead, including Jones Beach State Park which, with its broad expanses of sand, Atlantic Ocean waves and a newly restored boardwalk, is the perfect spot for a classic day at the beach.
