All of the people that say it's poor, or ghetto are retarded..and so are the people that say it's rich. like most places, it has it's rich and poor spots. Nobody on Long Island thinks that they're part of the city, so shut up. Long island also isn't considered "upstate" Fucking ignorant bastards. In my eyes, there is upstate, NYC, and then Long Island.
You know if you're from Long Island if you know what King Kullen is.
