In media, Long Island is often painted out to be a New York City suburb. While technically true, Long Island has also been at the epicenter of many cultural movements over the past century. It was an important to the development of aviation during the early 20th Century, as Charles Lindbergh lifted off from Roosevelt Field in 1927. It was the place of origin for countless winners of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards. Hip-hop, punk rock, classic literature, and stand-up comedy all have roots in Nassau and Suffolk County. The Great GatsbyThe Godfather and Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind are just a few of the influential works that use Long Island as a setting. 

Our website was launched in April 2016 with the mission of celebrating both the history of Long Island and what's ahead for it. Its main focus is on entertainment, from providing content that is entertaining, to featuring Island-related events and personalities. While written by Long Islanders -- past and present -- the content is intended for readers all over the world. We leave the politics and hard news to the other publications...unless they happen to be entertaining.

Simply put, there is No Place Like Long Island.

Is there anything you miss about living on Long Island? 

GR: If you love the ocean like I do, there is no place like Long Island. During the summer season it is absolutely stunning, and Long Island is also one of the greatest melting pots anywhere in the world.

How often do you usually get back to the Island? Do you still have family there? 

GR: I visit Long Island regularly as my late brother Willie’s family is still in our hometown of West Babylon in Suffolk County. Our extended family is very close.

What was your first concert on Long Island? 

GR: I think it was Simon & Garfunkel at Forest Hills Stadium sometime in the late 1960s.

Do you have a favorite restaurant on the Island? 

GR: I have many local favorites but none in particular. It used to be Al’s Midwell Diner, my dad’s 24 hour burger and egg joint on Broadway in Massapequa. I worked there during my years at Brooklyn Law School as the overnight short-order cook.

Finally, what do you wish more people knew about Long Island? 

GR: The North Shore of Long Island is one of the most impressive real estate locations in the world. There are excellent properties right on the cliff with breathtaking views over the Sound, which can be bought for a steal compared to similar properties in for example the Hamptons.
