The Roosevelt Field Mall is in East Garden City ("Garden City, NY 11530" mailing address).

A map of the Hamlet of East Garden City of the Town of Hempstead, Nassau County:


Places in the Hamlet of East Garden City have a "Garden City, NY 11530", "Westbury, NY 11590", "East Meadow, NY 11554", "Uniondale, NY 11553" and "Hempstead, NY 11550" mailing address.

mattolson, in case you are unfamiliar with the local geography, I've sent you an explanation of the very, very confusing geography of "Lawn Guyland" as a DM (Direct Message).

I like the sound of this. Any idea what the names of these high rises are?

Every review says they are awful. Anyone have experience with them?

Why is that? ahaha,

I think the reviews say it all about Parker Towers. I mean I know more people that are pissed off complain more, but I haven't really seen one good review.

I'd recommend the area around Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn. Or try Floral Park, it has a young vibe but no real high rises.

As for another LI suggestion that is a high rise, why don't you try North Shore Towers? It's a co-op but there are rentals every now and then.

Yea, i've checked out apartments there and know a few people who live there. The ones that they re-do (rent-stablized tenant who moves out and they "renovate" to jack up the rent) are nice, but the complex is about half older tenants (with no turnover) and half newer tenants (with a lot of turnover). The apartments are quite large, but they are not worth the money they are asking. If you read the reviews of the place, they are pretty much spot-on.

Also, riding in the elevators it feels like you are taking your life in your hands.....

It is certainly NOT luxury and the website is a facade. BUT, you may like it, so it can be worth checking out. Only if you want to pay 300 bux a month to park your car

This would be a good option, however it is in Floral Park, Queens so a city income tax would be imposed. Also, there are A LOT of older people who live there and public transportation from there is pretty much non-existent outside of a M-F express bus.
