Why not start closer to home, jump on the Subway,
and visit Brooklyn, or Queens !
Unfortunately many seem
to think that Long Island is only Nassau, and Suffolk County.
It's A Very Long Island !
Although, it's my opinion that it does feel a bit more Calm, and
Tranquil as you travel east. That's until some BungHole hits the
horn a nanosecond after the light turns green.
It's A Magnificent Island, with so many diverse environments !
Probably the most bang for your buck would be a train ride to
Bayshore ( Maybe a stop at Smoking Als depending on your
culinary predilection ) and a Ferry over to Fire Island !
P.S. : To avoid opening an XtraLarge Can O'WhipAss.
Please say " On Long Island " not In Long Island ...
Some day you'll thank me for that quick lesson !
