Welcome to Long Island
Geographically, Long Island is made up of 4 counties: Kings (Brooklyn), Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk. Most people refer to Long Island as Nassau and Suffolk and Brooklyn and Queens as part of the city. Long Island is home to the first suburbs in America. These suburbs popped up after WWII as veterans and their families decided to escape New York City and head east to suburban life. Combined, Nassau and Suffolk County are home to 2.8 million people.
Many people when they hear Long Island think of the Hamptons. While the Hamptons are indeed part of Long Island far out on the South Fork, there is so much more to LI. Peaceful suburbs, beautiful beaches, picturesque towns, amazing dining, nightlife, mass transit options, business centers, farms, wildlife, etc. all make Long Island an amazing place to live, work, and play. However, I’m not a real estate agent, so enough about Long Island and on to the event.
I look forward to welcoming you to beautiful and unique Long Island for my event.
Long Island MacArthur Airport (KISP) is a mid-size regional airport located in central Suffolk County. MacArthur is home to many GA aircraft as well, both jets and propellor planes.
