Another young guy had his dirty lawn stained pants down to his knees. Once inside the mall it was noisy, kids running all over the place and hardly anyone spoke english. The food court was filthy and the stores were messy. Lots of cars with out of state plates in the parking lot, mostly North Carolina and Texas.
Walking back along Newbridge toward W.John there's piles of litter by the fence, lots of Coconut Juice bottles and Lotto Scratch Offs.
Alot of the activity seems to center around the small strip of stores on the SW Corner of W.John and Newbridge, there's a new bodega that opened up there and some more guys just getting drunk and loitering in the parking lot.
I have to say I hated walking through this area more than Post Ave!
A far cry from the town Billy Joel grew up in..thats for sure.

Just the other day I was in Hempstead.... Oh boy Nassau is going down the drain... whatever happened to Nassau ?

To my knowledge no one was murdered in Hempstead in the last 24 hrs but someone in North Bellmore was.

I agree with the Queens guy. The City rejects are definitely heading out these days.

I like Eastern Queens.

Crooks
