A hopeless little island. People are always depressed and in a rush. In most areas, and in most cases, it's the fucking boonies. The education system here is horrible, and a little one-bedroom apartment is through the fucking roof.

Long Island is a miserable little hell-hole that is roughly an hour or so away from the greatest city in the world. Definitely one of the worst places to live in the world, considering that you're only an hour away from the greatest city in the world.
Long Island sucks. EXAMPLE(S): Little Johnny goes to school miserable, and then comes home with alcoholic and needle injecting parents that nag about the lawn. People fighting with thick accents about the quickest way to get to Subway, and ugly 40-year old girls who think they're cute for hitting on a 22 year old.

Long Island is the Beverly Hills of the East. Long Island has people with big egos' and even bigger bank accounts. Old Westbury, Muttontown, Upper Brookville, Oyster Bay Cove, Brookville, Old Brookville,Mattinocock are just some of the neighborhoods with 10 cars per garage. Syosset, Jericho, and Roslyn have the hottest guys. Friends Academy is the private school to go to. Muttontown C.C., Glen Oaks, Fresh Medows, Pine Hollow, Old Westbury, and Engineers are the clubs to belong to. Sweats appeal, Lone Star, National are the stores to shop out.
If you live on Long Island you usually drive a mercedes, porshe, BMW, ferrari, Lambergini, Range Rover, or a cadillac. First cars are usually over 40,000. And you aren't cool if you don't own a jet. Girls that live on LI love the miracle mile, Everyone enjoys Hirschlifers and London Jewlers. Nobody needs to worry about getting fat becasue they all have their own personal trainers.

An Island right outside of NYC. It consist of yes Brooklyn and Queens, but it is better known for Nassau and Suffolk. Nassau has a higher crime rate than suffolk. Suffolk has many beaches, but is too suburban and in my opinion boring to live. Wyandanch in Suffolk County, is yes poor but DEFINATLEY not the hood. But places in Nassau tend to to be more Urban and more hood. Not as hood as places in NYC, but for Long Island these are definatley hoods. Roosevelt, Hempstead, and Freeport. And that's about it. Roosevelt known for one of America's most famous rap groups Public Enemy, which is well known and respected. Also the famous doctor J. Though Hempstead and Freeport are the hood, Roosevelt is one of the only full black communtiy's on Long Isalnd, and a little hispanic.
I don't feel like giving an example, so I'll just put the word in so they'll accept it. Long Island.

"in southern New York State, along with New York City. Nassau and Suffolk make up psuedo-long island, which techincally not part of the city. But most of nassau and western suffolk have the same culture and same or close "new york minute" feeling(rush hour for example). After all most of the skilled workforse for the city comes from the island, and its the money those people bring home that keeps long islands economy strong.

Most of long island is suburbs, from the town of brookhaven in suffolk to the queens border. Some of the areas are more urban than others, and some completely urban(spots in nassau, for example). Ask anyone, either they or their parents have lived in the city at one point in recent history; people move to get into more suburban atomosphere and to be closer to the beaches.

And to clear the "New Yorker" term up. "New Yorker" comes from "NEW YORK City" not New York State, so it refers to people in the city. Since Long Island is so closely connected with teh city, both culturly and geographically (brooklyn and queens are on long island), Long Islanders are also called New Yorkers (except for the east enders who stay in their shells and never go west). While out of staters can call people from upstate New Yorkers, its because they dont know the area well. Upstate is completely different than downstate, its more like pennsylvania, and doesnt embrase the "New York" atmosphere."

Couldn't have said it better myself. Long Island is the atmosphere of NYC put into a suburban setting. Long Islanders like to refer to each other as New Yorkers because the two areas are very related. But even diffrent areas on Long Island have diffrent feelings. Nassau and Western Suffolk have a lot more people who are more commonly jewish and more appreciative of the city. East of western suffolk (Huntington, Commack, Farmingdale, etc.) feels more like people who don't really like the city and are more like typical Middle americans. Some parts of Long Island have a very "Queens-ish" feeling to them. Some parts of the very west end of Nassau county have a similar atmosphere to Queens (Great Neck, New Hyde Park, Manhasset).

Okay, Long Island pretty much sucks. I lived there my whole life in Roosevelt & Hempstead. These are the only two towns where anything even happens. And i've been to just about everywhere. LONG ISLAND SUCKS!!!!! Who would wanna live here when the Greatest city on earth is right next to it. It just sucks get over it. Minus Hempstead & roosevelt, nothing even happens here. Move to Manhattan, Queens, Bronx, or Brooklyn. I wouldn't recommend
Staten Island, but if it's between Staten Island or Long Island, definatley pack your bags and head over to NYC.
NYC Kid: Wow mom, so this is Long Island. I'm gonna go try to associate with the kids.
LI Kids: Woah!!!!! Oh My God!!!, did you see that. That was apsolutley incredible!!! Wow!!!!
NYC Kid: What!!! What!!!!?
LI Kids: That slug moved 0.5 miles per hour faster than it did before!!
NYC Kid: I'm outta here

There is nothing to do, and trust me, kids are really amazed with things like this here because there is nothing to do!!! parents, don't punish your kids by making them live in the suburbs anymore, just go to NYC. I'm so glad I finally moved to Queens Long Island CITY. It's so much better.
