    A Good Basic Guide

    Having the opportunity to spend several days on the eastern part of Long Island, I needed basic information on what to do. I was totally ignorant of even the physical layout. This basic guide is sufficiently up to date so that it highlighted the newly burgeoning wine growing industry on the north fork. It also covered the south fork (the Hamptons, etc.). It also gave the overall layout, relationship and history of Long Island and New York City. If you're going to Long Island, this is a good guide and it's available on Nook!
