One of the most expensive places to live on the planet, but presently the center of the Universe, much like Rome was during the Roman Empire.

Look- everyone that is dissing Long Island is making some good points. And some shitty ones.more...
I'm from Syosset, in Nassau. The people here tend to be snobby rich idiots who don't care about anything besides themselves, money, sex, and when the next time they'll get drunk or high is.
What you are WRONG about-
There is not a damn sane person on Long Island that thinks we are part of New York CITY. We are New Yorkers- because we live in New York STATE. Not because we live in the city. Can you call someone from Florida a Floridian? Yep. Then you can call someone from NY a New Yorker.
And all you people that say Long Island, OR New York City is ghetto needs to get a clue. Ghetto's are extreemly poor areas that were overpopulated to an extreeme because the Nazi's forced Jewish people into them. If you think that wearing baggy clothes, speaking inchoherintly and wearing a huge cross on your neck makes you Ghetto- you make me laugh.
Oh, and why do I not find myself a tourist when I go to the City? I'm there about every other weekend, usually for two days and I spend the night. Me and my friends laugh at all the idiots who walk on the wrong side of the sidewalk and stop to point up and go "woah.. look at the giant cup of noodles! Its acutally STEAMING!" We actually saw someone 3 days ago who was looking for the Rockefeller Christmas Tree in Times Square. That was quite amusing.
