Neat, clean, and safe —this is how the New York Times describes Valley Stream, which supports the fact that it is one of the best places to stay in New York. Valley Stream is located in the state of New York and a village in Nassau County. The village was incorporated as Village of Valley Stream and is situated in the southwestern part of the town of Hempstead, along the border that runs through Queens. It is being served by the Long Island Railroad at the Valley Stream station. The station is located along Sunrise Highway and in Franklin Avenue. The village is also being served by the Gibson and Munro boulevards, however, it is only along Far Rockaway Beach. The Dutch colonists arrived in the area in 1640, the present-day Valley Stream was purchased by the Dutch West India Company from the Rockaway Indians - they are a Lenape, or Delaware band that is best known by the place where they lived. Since the population was widely concentrated on the western side, the woodland area was not developed for the next two centuries. A significant number of the Valley Stream’s population are young professionals, and most residents have a liberal outlook on life. The place features a diverse, close-knit community. Valley Stream is highly accessible due to its strategic location. It is close to Kennedy Airport, situated between two major highways, and has a Long Island Rail station.
