Island that extends from Queens to Suffolk County. Covers a large area of multicultural mixes. Suffolk County contains more than just the Hamptons and is not all rich or all poor. It is south and east of NYC. Although two parts of NYC are on the island the whole island is not part of the city. That is like saying Disneyworld is all of Forida, or Boston is the only city in MA.

However it does have the world's Biggest parking lot commonly known as the LIE.

Also some LIers are from NYC but not all and all LIers are New Yorkers.

1: Oh the Hamptons.

2: No they are an hour away.

1: Oh. Where are you?

2: Here.

1: Never heard of it.

2: Well it is part of Long Island.

Short for Long Island Iced Tea, a powerful cocktail made with vodka, gin, rum, tequila, triple sec, sour mix and cola.
(to a bartender) "Yo, A Long Island, please."

Part of the suburban NY-NJ-CT metropolitan area of 19,000,000 people. Levi town was one of the first incorporated suburbs in the 1940's after the depression and WWII. Now it is primarily dominated by Guido's and Japs. Very segregated compared to other parts of the country I came to realize after living in Florida which

happens to way out as being a little too diverse for me. Many rich wealthy obnoxious towns, many poor ghetto working class towns but overall mostly middle class suburban towns with families. Pretty safe for being in such a populated place. The city is very accessible usually anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours. Look to buy a

house prepare to spend $500,000 or more for a decent looking home in a nice community. Schools are pretty good and the kids are mostly spoiled or live at home until they are 30 like on VH1'S Frank The Entertainer in a Basement Affair.
Person A: what did you do tonight in Long Island?
Person B: I went to 7-11, Dunkin Donuts and than got wasted and had my friend

drive to Taco bell? you
Person A: The Same it was so much fun.=

Absolutely not upstate. There's no hicks, few farms, but there is a lot of money, so you're all right to be jealous.
Long Island girls just do it better.

One of the best alcoholic beverages ever thought of! Have a few of them and you'll be all set.

look at the map, brooklyn and queens are physically part of long island. and it's not upstate, it is the suburbs. i live in the bronx now, its not a huge difference then living in huntington, unless your retarded. you city folk need to chill and wise up.
Long Island is where many of Manhattan's most successful people live.
