Field trips to Vanderbilt Planetarium, bonfires on Montauk, Virginia from Billy Joel's "Only The Good Die Young"—there are certain things you'd only know if you grew up on Long Island. Here are 25 of them.
Billy Joel will open the renovated Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum next spring, giving the “Piano Man” yet another high-profile gig at the arena in which he holds the record for the most consecutive sold-out shows. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday. American Express members get an exclusive opportunity to claim seats for the gig on Thursday, between 10 a.m. through 10 p.m.

They tawk just like us! People know we’re from Long Island as soon as we open our (big) mouths. Without the edginess of Brooklynese, the Long Island accent is as distinctive as it is irritating. I say it’s time we own it. No, we don’t all sound like Amy Fisher. But some of us do. And some of us sound much, much worse. Whatevah.
Beyond the obvious issues that everyone complains about–taxes, traffic, cost of living, the way we tawk–there are some seriously twisted things about this place we call home. Here are a few we take for granted that boggle the minds of interlopers who happen upon our fair Island. Did somebody say "Cheese Fries"!?
The Lords of 52nd Street, William Shatner and Bill Burr are among the many performers coming to LI this week!
Jack’s Waterfall grooves at Treme, Jessie's Girl & Mike DelGuidice & Big Shot rock The Paramount, 50 Cent hits The Emporium, & John Ziegler cracks up McGuires, among so much more!
