Comments
New York Resident: "Garden City kept Jews out. Center of Long Island (N/S), near NYC. Relatives reported to my family that about 1957, they, as Jews, were unable to buy property in Garden City (they settled in Great Neck). I know no other details. Others said the same thing to me about Garden City. It was 'common knowledge.'" In 2011, a group of middle school children in neighboring Hempstead marched to encourage less segregation between their community and Garden City.
