About Garden City 

The seeds for Garden City were planted in the late 1800s when department store mogul Alexander Turney Stewart had a vision of building a planned community with attractive homes and extensive roads. In 1869, he purchased 10,000 acres and began work on what would become Garden City.

Over the years, there have been many influxes of people to the area. Wealthy heads of industry built sprawling estates, while working class people settled here and commuted to nearby Hempstead and Manhattan. Today Garden City is a thriving community that offers a mix of historic homes and buildings alongside modern constructions.
