Footnotes ...

<1>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Long Island refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Long Island may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Long Island) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Long Island. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Long IslandOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Long Island. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 52.5667, Longitude: -55.6333    
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
