Long Island City
About Long Island City
Long Island is a stretch of island which lies perpendicular to the island of Manhattan. Long Island is separated from Manhattan by a thin stretch of water, which is the East River. Brooklyn connects to the island of Manhattan through bridges and subways, the first bridge which was built is the Brooklyn Bridge, which still stands today. The North shore of Long Island borders Long Island Sound, and the Western shore of Long Island meets the shores of The Atlantic Ocean. There are many parts of Long Island, including The Hamptons, Queens, and The City of Brooklyn. All areas of Long Island are accessible by the Long Island Expressway which is the major highway that runs through Long Island, and by the Long Island Rail Road, originally built in 1834. Many people who live on Long Island work in New York City and in places on Long Island which require them to commute using this high way or rail road system. There are many universities on Long Island such as Hofstra University, Briarcliffe College, Adelphi University, and Five Towns College. Certain areas of the island are former industrial areas now used for housing, some areas are beach towns and coastal, other areas are university campus, and there are even vineyards on Long Island.
