The biggest eyesore has got to be Town of Hempstead employees driving around my neighborhood doing nothing! The roads have pot holes. There is garbage everywhere. The weeds are knee high. Kate Murray gets us a windmill in Lido!

Seaford Avenue School without a doubt.

Folks complaining about the Seaford Avenue School need to know that a developer has a plan to convert the property into a slew of condominiums and is only waiting for the proper approvals before going ahead. This will mean a loss of the athletic fields and increased traffic for others in the area. "Sprucing up the neighborhood" comes with a price.
