Long Island, NY, home to the nation’s first suburb, is located just outside of New York City. Living up to its name, the island is the longest, largest, and most populated island in the nation, extending over 118 miles eastward from New York Harbor to Montauk Point (“The End”). Montauk, the furthest point on Long Island’s East End is just a two-hour train ride to the heart of Manhattan.
From the Gold Coast Mansions and lush farms and vineyards of the North Shore to the pristine sandy beaches and posh Hamptons villages of the South Shore, Long Island is made up of six distinct regions. Long Island locals know them well and each has their own flavor and appeal.
