Why was the description - very accurate - of the pubs removed.

Nicely written but not encyclopedic and lots of point of view. Olive Oil 14:18, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

He he I think you should leave it there for comedy value ;-) Nah, try and rewrite it without POV - will be tough Nige 18:58, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

List of chain shops?[edit]

There's nothing special about the chain shops in the town. Why are they in there, and who cares? They can be found in nearly every other town in the whole country! I propose that they should be removed and a brief sentence about the shops and restaurants be written in their place. Anyone else agree? Chevymontecarlo 18:26, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Do it! Do it! Do it! No use waiting on Wikipedia. I too recognize a description of a strip mall. Hmm. & I for one, would much rather read about the former list of pubs-about everything what makes Hempstead & its history *different* or fun.
F'rinstance, I'm reeel curious about the H-E-M-P in HEMPysteads name. How and Where did such a shipping thing happen in?
Alas! I know nothing- I'm sunning in a California armchair, just a bum who's lyin' in.

HempStand, I only knew ye through a few 1970's tunes. Most famous may be a certain pedophiliac friend:
"He dines in Hempstead Village on expense accounted gruel". The mentor of little "Cross Eyed Mary", 1972
Was he an odd one to encounter ?Tell me Hemp stead- w.t.h.'s the point such songs are making?
What in Hempenstead is happening?
What is, and/or, who were, the facts behind 1970's pop 'heydey', of Hempstead's "popular associations" ?

Before it's residents thought of Hempstead as a strip mall, was it ever once a home, some special place for human needs? Were there dark parks, warm pubs, golden memories? Or has Hempenstead gone posh w/placing cars, a "Towne" crass w/ gone-to-fat hookers & heroin smash?
Do odious down-town "clip joints" result from developers' cash?

How about the scabrous- scandal, whispers, the sadly verifiable things
Can Happenstaad write about the same things? The tales out of history, the HempenStanding Ring?
O' tell me what hove did Hempstead hold before the the war? And what berths did it ship therein? Um, has it done with going round to church? Who has it shacked up with since? does it have many births, any favorite sins? Have to have the police round much? And ABOVE ALL- tell me-
How much is the place worth!?!

Do explore your heart, Hempstring; For your good name, no fear
you can come off warm & peasant
as a fart to the rear
U can become unknown as "The_One_We_Didnt_Hear"
or Hark over everything: Fun, Unloved, Sunny,Tears
Or go again- Become so gay, or as mad!! beyond all matter

Anyone any good with map images? The red dot is currently way north of where it should be. Sadly I don't know how to fix that. danno 21:06, 24 October 2011 (UTC)
