Looks like Long Island has a very low risk of Radon.

Radon originates from bedrock. Long Island is a huge glacial sand pile. No radon issues to worry about.

Not a hot bed of Radon here since LI is basically sediment from the last ice age.

Upstate and NJ are more likely areas

Don't waste your money. L.I. Has an avg. of .009% radon. A normal avg is 1-2%
I did a lot of research on this when I wanted to buy a vaca home in the Poconos. There levels where 5-8% +/- Google it. 2% was considered just "ok"
