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.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Long Island. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Long Island
