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

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.

-I'm a new yorker cause i live in new york STATE. not the city, you fucktards. i think i would know, i live here.
-not everyone here is rich or white. i know plenty of people who are poor and plenty of people who are black.
-no everyone is homosexual, so get over it. seriously, there are gay people here, but not everyone is.
-i have to admit, we do have nice beaches..
-long island is not upstate, thats just retarted to say.
-not all long islanders have the mentality that we're better then everywhere else. yea i like it here, but i dont think im better then anyone else.
-not all the girls are bitches
-just cause you meet a stupid person here, doesnt make everyone else stupid
-go to a place before you judge it.
