East Meadow, Long Island, New York
East Meadow is a hamlet in Nassau County, Long Island, New York. East Meadow is part of the Town of Hempstead.
East Meadow's name is derived from being the "meadow" of Hempstead Plains "east" of the Meadow Brook (originally a brook, now replaced by a parkway of the same name). Located just 30 miles (48 km) from downtown Manhattan and with a majority of residents commuting to work, East Meadow is a thriving suburb of New York.
When people talk about East Meadow, two topics inevitably come up - the community's central location on Long Island, and Eisenhower Park. You can easily get to Meadowbrook and Wantagh parkways, Nassau Coliseum, Roosevelt Field mall, the beach, the hospital, strip malls, grocery stores, and a slew of restaurants. As for Eisenhower Park, it's larger than Central Park! Spanning 930 acres, it contains picnic areas, athletic fields, three golf courses, miniature golf, and an aquatic center.
Almost no actual meadow remains in East Meadow or the Hempstead Plain, due to the boom of post-World War II development and later, unchecked suburban sprawl.
