Stretching northeast from New York Harbor to the Atlantic Ocean, Long Island is the largest island in the continental U.S. It technically includes the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens, but generally refers to the suburban counties of Nassau and Suffolk exclusively. Known for its cookie-cutter suburban neighborhoods, the island is also home to a wealth of intriguing places to visit, including beaches, scenic countryside, wineries, and numerous historical sites. In the summer months, wealthy New Yorkers flock here to relax in their exclusive Hamptons properties.
