Living in: FrankLin square


hat is now Franklin Square was originally used as grazing land and farmland by white settlers near the center of the Hempstead Plains. By the 1950’s, farmland was rapidly being replaced by homes. Franklin Square was a major beneficiary of the emigration of people from New York City. Franklin Square School District refers to the town’s four elementary schools: Polk Street, Willow Road, John Street and Washington Street. There are three other schools based in Franklin Square but as parts of other school districts: St. Catherine of Sienna Elementary, Valley Stream North and H. Frank Carey High. The town has a volunteer fire department and is served by the Nassau County Police Department’s 4th Precinct. Its most notable park is Rath Park, which includes a pool, basketball, handball, tennis, football and baseball

Living in: ELmont

any of Elmont's visitors come for the nationally renowned Belmont Park, which hosts the annual horseracing event known as the Belmont Stakes. Elmont’s boundaries were decided in 1898, when its shift from Queens had been finalized. Before that, however, Elmont was predominantly farmland and controlled by Dutch settlers. Belmont Racetrack was completed in 1905, a turning point in its history. Sale of the farmland began thereafter and houses were erected in its place. Elmont School District includes six elementary schools: Dutch Broadway, Clara H. Carlson, Gotham Avenue, Covert Avenue, Alden Terrace and Stewart Manor. Nearly two-thousand students attend Elmont Memorial High School, part of the Sewanhaka Central High School District. Elmont also has a volunteer fire department and is served by the Nassau County Police Department’s 4th Precinct.

Christina Daly/Herald

The Belmont Stakes, despite tightened security, was a huge success in June. The Elmont Chamber of Commerce is led by Paul Sapienza. There are a number of civic associations, such as the Elmont East End Civic Association, that are designated toward helping residents express their views in organized ways. Elmont has about 33,000 residents living in about 10,300 units, according to the 2010 census. It is 45 percent African-American, 30 percent white, 22 percent Hispanic and 11 percent Asian. One of the most prominent features of the community is the Elmont Memorial Library. A beautiful build-

ing and hub for a variety of events and entertainment series, the library boasts an auditorium and huge space for town meetings. Thousands visit the library every month for a truly interactive media experience. Notable residents of Elmont are WNBA President Donna Orender, author Nelson DeMille, comedian Andy Kaufman (buried at Beth David Cemetery) and trainer Cara Castronuova, who has appeared on “The Biggest Loser” television show.

Basketball was the most popular sport at the Jack Martins Sports Classic in July at Dutch Broadway School in Elmont.

The county executive — currently Republican Edward Mangano — serves a four-year term and is the chief administrator. Nassau also has an elected comptroller, currently George Maragos, a district attorney, Kathleen Rice, and a county clerk, Maureen O'Connell.

towN of hempstead The Town of Hempstead, founded in 1644, is the largest township in the United States, encompassing 142 square miles with a population of approximately 760,000 people. Within the Town there are 34 unincorporated areas and 22 incorporated villages, more than 65 parks and marinas, and 2,500 miles of roads. Under the current system, the Town of Hempstead is overseen by a town supervisor — currently Republican Kate Murray — and a six-member Town Council. The six members of the council are elected from one of six councilmatic districts. The supervisor has a two-year term, and the council members have a four-year term of office. The supervisor serves as the chief executive officer of town government. She presides over all town board meetings, directing the legislative and administrative functions of that body. The supervisor also oversees the day-to-day operations of a municipal government of 24 major departments, employing just more than 2,100 people. As the chief financial officer of the township, the supervisor is responsible for the creation and the implementation of a town budget. Council members are responsible for adopting the annual budget, amending the town code and the building zone ordinances, adopting all traffic regulations and hearing applications for changes of zone and special exceptions to zoning codes.
