In the midst of the calm, the wonderful view of Manhattan, or the iconic photo with skyscrapers in the background, Long Island appears as a calmer city compared to nearby large cities such as Brooklyn, Queens, or other big cities in New York.
The high standard of living in the area is highly valued by Long Islanders. Swimming, hiking, and cycling are just a few of the outdoor activities that can be done in parks, beaches, and nature reserves. Additionally, the area offers a diverse range of entertainment options, including theaters, museums, and top-notch restaurants.
Without having to live in the city's busy center, residents can easily access Manhattan via trains, subways, or ferries and take advantage of the job opportunities, cultural attractions, and entertainment the city has to offer.
Public transportation makes it simple to commute within the island and to New York City, including the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) and bus systems. A well-maintained road network also guarantees effective mobility throughout the area.
However, not even the calmest region in the world does without the use of private cars, especially in the United States, where many cities have been designed essentially to have a car, or else you see your possibilities of getting around very limited.
Likewise, leaving Long Island without a car, and without taking around 2 hours, between stops and connections could also be quite a challenge. Unless you want to live isolated from the world in this corner facing the Atlantic Ocean, you better have a car to go visit and explore other vibrant areas in New York.
But the presence of cars, just as it brings great solutions, can also be the origin of not-very-pleasant events. For example, car accidents in this area of New York State.
