Basics…Long Island

Long Island is the big island just east of New York City.  The Hamptons are on the far east side of the island.

Brooklyn and Queens are technically Long Island, but it’s not really thought of that way.

Basics…Westchester

Westchester is a county north of New York City. Scarsdale and White Plains are in Westchester county.
