Jobs in Hempstead, New York, United States

Hempstead is a town located in Nassau County in the state of New York. The town actually incorporates 22 villages, and has a combined population of around 760,000 people.

If Hempstead were to become a city it would instantly become the second largest in the state behind only New York itself, and the 18th largest city in the United States, larger than Seattle, Denver or Boston.

A Patchwork Town

It is somewhat difficult to give an overall impression of Hempstead as a single body because it essentially lacks for a central identity.

Instead, the town is made up of 22 villages and 37 hamlets, all uniquely bound by the township of Hempstead to which they belong, and yet all retaining an air in independence to a certain extent.

Hempstead in general is a somewhat urban town – hence the high population. It is also relatively prosperous with 81% of homes being owned, with only 19% rented. There are excellent road and rail links to New York itself.

The town is well supplied with a large supply of restaurants, stores, delis and bars.  In part this is due to the annual influx of summer residents who swell the population of the town every summer – especially the villages and hamlets that lie closer to the ocean and/or have access to beaches.

Key Facts:

  • Median Age: 34.2
  • Median Household Income: $55,417
  • Median Property Value: $308,400
  • Cost of Living: 23% higher than state average, 47% higher than national average
  • Unemployment Rate: 3.8%
  • Crime Rate: 14% lower than national average

Tourism and Aviation

The close proximity of JFK airport (it lies just to the west of the edge of town) mean that several aviation related companies operate in the town. Both Lufthansa and Swiss have their US headquarters in the town, and a number of companies operate services, such as catering, for the airport and the airlines based there.

Tourism is also a major employer in the town. This is a traditional summer retreat for New Yorkers and Long Islanders, many of whom own or rent summer property in the town. As just one example, Jones Beach State Park, located here, attracts around 6 million visitors per year.

To that end then, it’s no surprise that after healthcare (17%), accommodation and food service (11%) and retail (12%) are the largest employing sectors in the town.

Administration and Support roles (7%), Education (6.5%), Pubic services (7%) and Transportation roles (6.5%) are the next biggest sector, and reflect a broadly service industry centered economy.

Construction and related, at 9% of the jobs, is a strong sector in the town, reflecting a town that continues to grow.
