Having lived on Long Island now for all of 2 years, I’m still in the honeymoon phase. And where I live, it resembles Queens in a lot of ways, but with the constant drone of leaf blowers in the fall, and my neighbor’s lawn mower in the warmer months. I take many photos of my dogs and I during our almost daily hikes around the north shore area. Occasionally we venture out to Suffolk County, near alpaca farms and the pine barrens. It’s hard to believe I live equidistant from NYC and Fire Island. In many ways, geographically it is the best of both worlds.
