Long Island, NY
Long Island is an island located at the south-eastern tip of New York State, in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Connecticut, from which it is separated by Long Island Sound. It is immediately northeast of New York City. The island includes both suburban municipalities that are part of the New York metropolitan area, and wilderness and rural areas that are popular vacation resorts.
The island largely corresponds to Nassau County, NY and Suffolk County, although two of New York City's boroughs, Queens and Brooklyn, which correspond respectively to Queens and Kings counties, are also on the island. Long Island can also refer to the former city of Long Island City, NY, which was at the western tip of the island and is now part of Queens.
