25 Things You Know If You Live On Long Island
Dorothy Schaefer

If you're from Long Island, it's usually pretty noticeable. For starters, we live ON Long Island, not IN Long Island. Here are 25 signs you're from Long Island!

1. You live ON Long Island not IN Long Island-and you don't have a problem correcting people.

2. A BEC with Salt, Pepper, Ketchup and an Iced Tea is probably your go-to breakfast.

3. Citydiots: the term given to the city people who spend their summers here, causing even more traffic than their already is.

4. Long Island Iced Tea.

5. Your local Applebee's is probably your most frequented place when you can't decide what to eat.

6. You go to the Boardy Barn at least once after you turn 21. It's almost a rite of passage.

7. You can pronounce all the incredibly long town names correctly...and show off whenever you can. And dare anyone from elsewhere to pronounce them.

Check out this funny video of some students from North Carolina trying to pronounce Long Island town names!

8. Billy Joel is basically your mascot.

9. Vineyards are the place to spend your weekends (if you're 21 and over).

10. Riverhead Raceway.

11. You've probably snuck into King's Park (or considered it) at least once.

12. We basically have the best pizza, hands down.

13. There's a beach within 20 minutes of everywhere.

14. 7-11 and Dunkin Donuts are everywhere.

15. Your favorite bagel place is probably minutes (or seconds) away from your favorite pizza place.

16. We have some of the best views.

17. And coffee shops, like Crazy Beans.

18. The Big Duck.

19. Sports are big in your town. And your local supermarket definitely sells merchandise with your school's logo.

20. You've frequented your local diner between the hours of 11pm and 3am.

21. Jones Beach is the best place for summer concerts.

22. Brookhaven Fair. It's basically a summer tradition.

23. You have a "Long Island accent". Which sounds a lot like the Long Island Medium only you can't tell until someone accuses you of talking funny.

24. The weather will change from spring to summer to fall to winter all in the span of one day.

25. No matter where you go, Long Island will always be home.

Long Island is home. Whether you stay or go.
