look up any word, like swoll:
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 where are you from?

2: Long Island

1: Isn't it dangerous there in the city?

2: I wouldn't know I'm from Suffolk County.

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.

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.

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.

Long Island is an island located to the east of Manhattan, stretching in the northeasterly direction. It is home to four counties, of which two -- Brooklyn and Queens -- are Boroughs of New York City. In political and cultural contexts, however, the name "Long Island" refers to the portion of the island occupied by the remaining two counties: Nassau and Suffolk.

One of America's most vivid examples of urban sprawl, Long Island was mostly rural until the late 1940's, at which time developers began radically transforming its landscape into what became an endless sea of cookie-cutter housing and strip malls. It is characterized by overcrowding, insane transportation costs and high property taxes. Although it is socioeconomically diverse, and serene rural scenery can still be found there by those who look very hard, it is a quintessential American suburb in that it combines the worst of the urban and rural worlds: all the crowding and expense of living in the city with none of the cultural sophistication or tolerance; all the dullness of the country, with none of the bucolic charm.

Long Islanders are known for their distinctive accent, which is best described as exceedingly nasal and guttural. For example "long" is pronounced "lawn'", "coffee" is "cawffy", and someone whose name is Mark would actually be called "Mawk".
My friends bought a house in Long Island, and now their tax payments are almost as high as their mortgage payments!
