Just 22 miles form New York City lies Hempstead Village, one of the most active and progressive of all the Long Island communities. Centrally located, the "Hub of Long Island" is within a short distance of famous airfields. Popp fields, race tracks, and ocean bathing. With a historic background of more than three centuries, Hempstead is principally a residential community. It was here in 1665 that the famous "Duck's Laws" were written, giving to New York State its first code of Municipal Laws. they are carefully guarded as precious historical documents of colonial democracy.
