Uh first of all you DUMBASSES, Long Island is NOT Upstate, in fact, we only consider NYC and Long Island in New York State, Upstate is for poor famers :-)...First of all, we have the nicest beaches, shopping, cars, and houses. We have some of the best restaurants. I'm sorry that all of you that bash Long Island, but you are clearly jealous that we have money and you do not. We have the best schooling and the best of almost everything. So next time you want to diss Long Island, get your facts straight you stupid shits.

mostly suburban area. bedroom communities. life centers around your car and it's functioning properly. culturally distinct from NYC and upstate in various ways. usually if someone was born and raised on long island, they say "Long Island" as opposed to "New York" when someone asks them where they are from. can be extremely boring. real real boring. big box retail and malls, like everywhere else in the united states. once you get past riverhead, it's all very very rural and sparsely populated. The Hamptons are like colonies of sorts ruled over by foreigners. not really considered part of Long Island proper by people who live there, but many people like to go there and look at things, celebrity watch, go to the beaches etc. there are many, many, many nice beaches. everywhere. did I mention cars? cars are everything. a very big part of the culture. I'm sure the population's median income mirrors much of the rest of the country. one of the largest problems Long Island is experiencing is retaining it's young people. a lot of young people can't afford to live there because of the zoning codes and limited amount of affordable housing and apartments, so they end up having to move to the city or somewhere else, or they continue to live with their parents well into their twenties and then move somewhere else.
long island = cars

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.

ok for all you people who say that if you dont live in the 5 boroughs then your upstate then your just plain retarded.. i live in manhasset which is literally 10 minutes away from bayside which is queens, so yea unless they are hicks in bayside which i highly doubt there are NO hicks 10 minutes away.. just because it is considered long island doesnt mean that if you live in manhasset you arent a real new yorker or dont have an accent or watever the hell the rest of you illiterate idiots who waste their time on this say, this is supposed to tell you a definition of a place, not judge it and put in your own opinions so get a life and stop arguing about this and most importantly get your damn facts straight.. because dont try to tell me that you or your friends or parents or people you know dont come to manhasset to go to the americana.. because you DO.. and its not hicky and we dont have farms just cause its on long island
