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.

Episode 1: Fred Stoller

Fred Stoller is an acclaimed comedian, actor, and writer. I had the pleasure of interviewing him on August 6, 2017 at The Grove in Los Angeles, where many regard him to be "the mayor." His latest book is Five Minutes to Kill, an e-book on the HBO's 1989 Young Comedian Special, which Stoller appeared on alongside David Spade, Rob Schneider, Warren Thomas, Drake Sather, and Jann Karam.
