A great island right outside of New York City which even contains two of the Boroughs of NYC (Queens and Brooklyn) I was born in queens then moved to south shore of Nassau County. Everyone on here is right when they say you go to school and realize what a great place it is. I currently live in Pennsylvania, and have yet to come across some good appropriately priced food, flat terrain to walk on instead of hills everywhere, warmer winters, cooler summers, decent educated not ignorant people and more. It is a great place to live with having the greatest city in the world practically in your backyard. When you visit or live here then you can judge for yourself. Yeah we are all spoiled, self righteous, and enjoy good culture and cuisine, all you people from elsewhere can sue us for it. Also a place to get some of the best weed ever for some decent prices.
PA College Student from PA: So man where are you from? I am from the great town of Stroudsburg PA.
PA College Student from LI: Oh wow that sucks I am from Long Island which is right outside of New York City, greatest place ever.
Depending on where you live it's 20 minutes - 1 hour from NYC, it has awesome beaches with sexy mammas, great place to visit, yes, we are NEW YORKERS, some of the inhabitants sound like they are from Brooklyn, some do not. People from long island don't all pronounce Long Island with a strange accent. We love real food, we love fashion. Some celebrities live on long island and some have moved since then. Overall a great place to live.
Long Island is a beautiful place to live, the environment is amazing. We have beaches, state parks, forests. There is so much history its amazing. The town i live in is high upper class but there are places with lower standards. I also live in a jewish white town. Most jews in the USA live in NY and NJ and the most live on LONG ISLAND. many towns are known as Jappy Jericho Japoyset, Japicho Plainjew and Old Bethhamish. But there are towns where the jewish population is less.
Not everyone is snobby and rich eventhough it may seem like that.
AND NORTHSHORE NASSAU COUNTY GIRLS DO IT BEST. were smart funny pretty not trashy and mostly wealthy
The hamptons are the sickest part of LI and most people go there for the summer.
ALso we live 30-45 mins away form the city and can go whenever, which we do to take advantage of shopping and clubs, although we have enough of our own.
My camp friend jess is from Long island she is pretty rich and has a sick house in the hamptons so we beach it all the time.
An island located east of NYC, with amazing beaches and some of the best people you'll ever meet. You can play the 6 degrees of separation game and you will find a connection to 9 out of the 10 people you'll meet from Long Island. Yes, sometimes we slip into our customary "Lawnguyland" accents, but the fact of the matter is they happen as a result of the people you grow up with, not necessarily where you're from. In fact, most people love our accents, and if you don't, don't listen to us talk when we go into a rant.
You either hate it or you love it, but there sure as hell isn't a place like this anywhere else.
You can't spell L-I-F-E without L.I. <3
Long Island girls do it better.
You either date a rich girl from the North Shore, or a chill girl from the South Shore.
Long Island is love.
A small piece of land wedged between New York City and oblivion. Forever known for Billy Joel, grating accents, and, unfortunately, the Hamptons.
I'll speak funny and listen to Billy Joel, but I'm from Long Island, not the Hamptons.
A dreary, 125 mile long sandbar that is home to some of the stupidest, most boorish rich idiots in the known universe.
Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow you might be marooned on dreary Long Island.
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.
