Baldwin is a small town in New York. It's a quiet area full of diversity and good spirit. It's a safe place to live with little to crimes. The residents in Baldwin are friendly and welcoming. The schools are ok as they offer good academic programs for students and have several exciting sports programs. Although they have fun programs in school there's not much outside of school. We don't have any hangout spots for children other than the bowling alley. Other than that, Baldwin is peaceful neighborhood where you can catch some quiet time.

Growing up and living in this area has given me a great sense of community. In this town, my very small town, everyone knows each other and gets along for the most part. My town is very diverse and continues to grow in diversity and it is beautiful. There is a lot of pride in my community and it is shown through the support for the sports teams, arts and music programs in my town. This little suburban town will always be home to me.

It's a nicely diverse neighborhood. However, the Town of Hempstead doesn't put anything into it. They started a revitalization project over 10 years ago that has gone absolutely nowhere. Now the downtown area is full of empty, dilapidated storefronts and buildings. It's horrible.
