Island that extends from Queens to Suffolk County. Covers a large area of multicultural mixes. Suffolk County contains more than just the Hamptons and is not all rich or all poor. It is south and east of NYC. Although two parts of NYC are on the island the whole island is not part of the city. That is like saying Disneyworld is all of Forida, or Boston is the only city in MA.

However it does have the world's Biggest parking lot commonly known as the LIE.

Also some LIers are from NYC but not all and all LIers are New Yorkers.
1: Oh where are you from?

2: Long Island

1: Isn't it dangerous there in the city?

2: I wouldn't know I'm from Suffolk County.

1: Oh the Hamptons.

2: No they are an hour away.

1: Oh. Where are you?

2: Here.

1: Never heard of it.

2: Well it is part of Long Island.

Part of the suburban NY-NJ-CT metropolitan area of 19,000,000 people. Levi town was one of the first incorporated suburbs in the 1940's after the depression and WWII. Now it is primarily dominated by Guido's and Japs. Very segregated compared to other parts of the country I came to realize after living in Florida which

happens to way out as being a little too diverse for me. Many rich wealthy obnoxious towns, many poor ghetto working class towns but overall mostly middle class suburban towns with families. Pretty safe for being in such a populated place. The city is very accessible usually anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours. Look to buy a

house prepare to spend $500,000 or more for a decent looking home in a nice community. Schools are pretty good and the kids are mostly spoiled or live at home until they are 30 like on VH1'S Frank The Entertainer in a Basement Affair.

Uh first of all you DUMBASSES, Long Island is NOT Upstate, in fact, we only consider NYC and Long Island in New York State, Upstate is for poor famers :-)...First of all, we have the nicest beaches, shopping, cars, and houses. We have some of the best restaurants. I'm sorry that all of you that bash Long Island, but you are clearly jealous that we have money and you do not. We have the best schooling and the best of almost everything. So next time you want to diss Long Island, get your facts straight you stupid shits.

Short for Long Island Iced Tea, a powerful cocktail made with vodka, gin, rum, tequila, triple sec, sour mix and cola.
