Hello from the western edge of Long Island
« on: October 10, 2018, 02:40:51 PM »

Family used to take trips what seemed like every week to NJ and other places around the northeast so I ended up developing an interest in the roads especially around LI and NYC at a young age.  Fast forward to today and I end up driving on some of them...

Welcome from a place quite nearby, but basically another planet by LI standards!

Welcome from Michigan!

I've only been to the western edge of Long Island myself, but hoping to explore more of the island someday.

Greetings from across the Sound.  50 miles from Riverhead as the crow flies; 150 as the car drives.

I'm gonna guess either Long Island City or somewhere in NYC.  Welcome from northeast Illinois but only sort-of Chicagoland!
