The only "word" on here that has a bunch of people on here leaving a paragraph of a piss-poor defense of that shitty non-New-York-City based place. I didn't know this was a place to leave a blog, I thought it was supposed to be a place to get a definition, even if it's a shitty one. I don't even know why this shit is still called Urban Dictionary when no one on this shit is actually from any urban area but instead are usually from some shitty place. Like Long Island.

The best place to live in the world. Yes, I will admit there are some snobby rich people and from my town probably 25% of the population is rich and snobby. But if you're saying that we are terrible because we live here and think we're better than everyone. Total lie. You don't see us running around in New Jersey telling everyone how great we are...and furthermore we are not bad people because we live here...I was born and raised in a preppy town on the North Shore and I am proud...next time you want to go accusing Long Islanders, come talk to us, we're really not that terrible. Yes, there are always the drunk teenagers running around, and if you go down a main road at about 2 in the morning your bound to see about 30 15-18 year olds just going insane. But thats how it is here I'm sure we're not the only place in the world that does that. Life in Long Island is awesome... If you're trying to "diss" us well than you are just jealous that you don't drive a Jeep Wrangler, or BMW, or GMC Yukon, or Range Rover, out to a summer house in the Hamptons where you go to parties and have an awesome time. I don't have anything against any other part of the world or country, but coming from a person who lives in Long Island, I hope you get your facts right next time.
Long Island is the place to be.
If you don't live here,
You're no living.

(n)Long Island is an island consiting of Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk
Though when people refer to the term Long Island they probably only mean Nassau and Suffolk. Long Island especially Nassau has been greatly affected by its rowdy neighbor and Nassau is considered to be a mainly urban area with a few suburban towns sprinkled in. It consits of rich neighborhoods like Great Neck and Muttontown. And poor neighborhoods like Roosevelt, and Hempstead. The two citys of Long Island are Glen Cove and Long Beach which both have urban feels and is developed more than your average city and both have crime similar to those of big citys. Suffolk is somewhat urban, somewhat suburban and somewhat rural. About 100 miles east of the NYC border in suffolk is green acres and farm land. Though someparts of suffolk have been infested with urban sprawl and have been infested with gangs. Other towns are nice and quiet and particulary suburban like Smithtown and St. James. Sometowns are notorious like Wyandanch and Central Islip.

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.

One of the most misunderstood areas of our nation. Settled in 1638, the island consists of 4 counties, Kings (Brooklyn), Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk. Brooklyn and Queens are Boroughs of New York City and are therefore not generally considered part of Long Island.
If you are "dissing" Long Island and you are from Long Island, you are most likely from Nassau County, a stale, bizarre, and overdeveloped area full of strip malls and busy highways. It is the quintessential Long Island stereotype and unfortunately gives the rest of Long Island a bad name. If youre "dissing" Long Island and are not from Long Island, youre probably a young person from the midwest now living a hip lifestyle in New York City. You have never really been to Long Island, except maybe a friends parents home in Nassau County.
Most of Suffolk County is still very rural and has maintained much of its historical character and charm, though the integrity of these self-sustaining villages are constantly threatened by the encroaching Nassau County. Suffolk County is more like an area of New England as far as its towns and villages go. It is a very relaxing area and home to a plethora of outdoor opportunities and is a place full of culture and historical value for those who seek it.
It's very easy to write off Long Island as a suburban wasteland, and as a matter of fact...keep doing it because its getting too crowded for the people who love it here. :)
Nassau County gives the rest of Long Island a bad name.
