For much of my life, I have been living in West Hempstead. I would say that this not a bad place to live. It is a safe, clean suburb of New York City. You do not need a car because there are buses that run through here, as well a train. Things are generally within walking distance. I feel so lucky to have lived in West Hempstead because I am close to A&S Bagels, a 24 hour bagel shop that has been rated as being within the top 20 bagel shops in the United States. I can see why they are rated like that, because they have a great selection of bagels and they are open 24 hours. Where else can you find a bagel with cheese cooked onto it, or a blueberry bagel?
Also, Hempstead Turnpike, a busy street with a lot of great local businesses—coffee houses, pubs, sports places, cultural centers and hobby places, runs through West Hempstead. There is a delicious Turkish restaurant on Hempstead Turnpike. Also, there is The Witch's Brew—a beautiful coffee house.
