About West Hempstead

Welcome to West Hempstead - the neighborhood with the convenient "In-Town" location and "Out-of-Town" feel.

Directly located off the Southern State Parkway's Exit 17 North, West Hempstead is home to a proud Jewish community that emphasizes achdut among its members and institutions.

The neighborhood boasts many amenities that play a vital role in the workings of the Jewish community, including:

Additionally, the neighborhood is home to several Kosher eateries and shopping establishments that have reliable supervision, including:

  • A Judaica Store
  • A Glatt Kosher Chinese food restaurant
  • A schwarma / falafel restaurant
  • 2 bagel stores
  • 2 pizza shops
  • Glatt Kosher butcher / grocery store
  • Neighborhood supermarkets that cater to the community and carry a wide selection of Kosher products

West Hempstead offers a state-of-the-art library and is in the midst of a neighborhood beautification project. On warm Shabbos afternoons, the community playground is where you'll find many of the young families that call West Hempstead home. The community also organizes sports leagues that play on the neighborhood ball fields, has a local civic association, and is home to Hall's Pond and Nassau County's Echo Park.

We are located just 15 minutes away from the Five Towns, 2 minutes from Hempstead Lake State Park, and 45 minutes to Penn Station via the Long Island Rail Road.
