Description

This hill is... man made. Perhaps disgraceful to add to this database in a certain sense. However, The Town of Hempstead has done a remarkable job transforming the former landfill into a park and preserve and the views are unrivaled on Long Island's south shore. The "summit" has markers detailing what can be seen (yes, the Oceanside landfill is clearly visible to the west...) but so is the NYC skyline and the Jones Beach Amphitheater. Worth a visit for native Long Islanders who are looking for a hill with a view.
