Keep Uniondale United
Since 1917, Mitchel Field has been declared Mitchel Field, Uniondale. Confusion over the use of the name "East Garden City" resulted in the Town of Hempstead 2015 resolution to retire the use of the name, "East Garden City" within the township.
Even to this day, there’s a misconception that places like Mitchel Field, Roosevelt Field Mall, Westbury Plaza, are not in Uniondale. To tackle the misinformation the Greater Uniondale Action Coalition has launched the “Did You Know” campaign; to inform the general public within Uniondale’s true borders. GUAAC is committed to the unification of the Uniondale community.
