Information on the Village of Garden City

Garden City is actually a village within the town of Hempstead which is in Nassau County, NY with a population of 22,396 people. The United States Census Bureau reports that the village is comprised of a total area of 5.3 square mile, all of which is land. It was originally founded by Alexander Turney Stewart, who was a millionaire from Scotland looking to create an upscale community for New Yorkers to live in. This area continues to be an upscale community in present day with a healthy economy. Back then, the prized attraction in this small community was the grand Garden City Hotel by the notable design firm McKin, Mead & White. Later on in 1893, the Garden City Company was founded by the heirs of Alexander Stewart and they decided to donate four acres of their land that rested beside the Mineola train station. That land was used to build the county buildings in the present day Mineola village.

In 1915, Garden City village then merged with a nearby village called Garden City Estates and the incorporated villages really began to develop their surrounding cities as well. It wasn't until the 1920s that the population really began to grow and the city expanded by building more houses. This expansion came to a halt after the stock market crash of 1929, but regained momentum with a population boom in the 1930s. The historic Garden City Hotel eventually went bankrupt and was demolished in the 1970s, but a new Garden City Hotel has since been built in its place.

Several momentous events happened in the small village of Garden City. One of the more notable events being when Charles Lindbergh departed for his infamous solo transatlantic flight in 1927 from the Roosevelt Field which is located in East Garden City. The village has its own school district comprised of seven different schools; however, the primary school act as one single unit and are spread out on three different campuses throughout the village. The demographic of Garden City is predominantly white with some Hispanic, Asian and African American residents. This small village is also home to our criminal defense law firm where we continue to provide aggressive criminal defense for all types of criminal charges.
