Garden City is an incorporated village in Nassau County, New York, United States, in the town of Hempstead. It was founded by multi-millionaire Alexander Turney Stewart in 1869, and is on Long Island, to the east of New York City, about 18 miles from midtown Manhattan. The village is located mostly in the Town of Hempstead with a small portion in the Town of North Hempstead.

Mr. Stewart purchased 10,000 acres on the Hempstead Plains, creating his legacy — Garden City — on the western portion. While his master plan for a model suburb lacked a church, after his death in 1876, his wife, Cornelia Clinch Stewart, built the Gothic-style Cathedral of the Incarnation with a mausoleum for her beloved’s final resting place . The Cathedral is notable for its stunning architectural design, stained glass windows and icons. Garden City has something for everyone!
