I have lived on LI -- two towns away from Hofstra-- my whole life...  I will see if I can describe the "vibe" for you...

Firstly-- it is nothing like Brooklyn or NYC in looks, charm, or anything.  Hofstra is a very nice campus in the middle of a fairly commercial suburban area.  It borders the city of Hempstead, which is a bit of a rough neighborhood..., the Nassau Coleseum [hard to spell...] (a sports arena)... and... that's about it... There are some bars that get very hot when school is in session if you're into that sort of thing ( i am not ) ... I would say that it is nearly impossible to survive at the campus without a car.  You are not going to get remotely close to the "sex in the city charm" that you or someone else describe.. Hofstra is it's own little universe.  You could hop a LIRR train and be in Manhattan's Penn Station in about 40-45 minutes from there.

Actually, the campus is close to Mineola, which is the seat of the Nassau County Gov't... there is plenty of action over there in the courts--... if your purpose in coming to NY is to list NYC experience on your resume, though, this might be a moot point...

If you are thinking brownstones and sidewalk cafe's and central park-- Long Island (and St. John's for that matter) is not your bag ... 

good luck with your search :-)



PS ... i worked as an EMT for the 911 system down in the areas of brooklyn you all are talking about -- really really fun areas... :-)
