Elmont is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) located in northwestern Hempstead in Nassau County, New York, along its border with the borough of Queens in New York City. It is a suburban bedroom community located on Long Island. The population was 33,198 at the 2010 census.Elmont is famous as the home of Belmont Park which hosts the Belmont Stakes, the third leg of the prestigious Triple Crown of thoroughbred racing.HistoryIn 1650, Christopher and Thomas Foster purchased a large plot of land. The Fosters' land had been controlled by Dutch settlers from the Holy Roman Empire, under the Habsburg Dynasty-House of Lorraine (1524). The Fosters intended to raise cattle, and sheep on their newly settled land, the Hempstead Plains of Long Island. They named this place "Foster's Meadow" — a name which would remain for the next 200 years of the village's history.Long Island has a rich cultural history, and the first settlers were First Nations. Native Americans were still here when Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano, sailed on the South Shore, and discovered Long Island in 1524 under the House of Habsburg.
