Default Where does Western Long Island end and Eastern Long Island start?

Once it was the Meadowbrook,then 135,110,112 now I think its around the Wm Floyd.

What do you guys think?

Well, Route 110 is really partially in Nassau so it could not be that. I would say somewhere parallel to Patchogue (i.e. 112 ) . Probably lots of people would say Riverhead, though.

Definitely not the William Floyd. Maybe Rt 112, but someone who lives in western Nassau would probably say 110 and say that all of Suffolk is eastern!

Eastern Suffolk starts at the William Floyd IMO.

I was wondering if it was past Wm Floyd and out to Riverhead now too.

Im sure theres still some Nassau bubble people (like my in laws) who still think 112 is the boonies.

For those folks who think that the western border of Long Island is the East River, they could argue that the Hamlet of Middle Island in the Town of Brookhaven -- named Middle Island because it is half-way between the East River and Montauk Point, as well as half-way between the North and South shores -- marks the west/east line.

Others would suggest that the 5 western towns -- Huntington, Babylon, Islip, Smithtown and Brookhaven -- are in the "west" and the 5 eastern towns -- Riverhead, Southold, Southampton, East Hampton and Shelter Island -- are in the "east".

And, yet, in the pre-cable TV days, others used the extent of the over-the-air TV reception to mark the west/east boundary; and, if memory serves me well, this would be somewhere in the eastern-half to the eastern-third of the Town of Brookhaven.

Thats my take too Walter but is seems like a few surprisingly voted for 110.

Maybe theyre from Queens.
