Now very many things, to be honest...

But Lewis Carroll lived here and wrote Through The Looking Glass in my current town of residence.

Long Island is my second home!

I used to attend college in Greenvale/Brookville, and most of my relatives are in Lindenhurst. :)

Oh cool. I have a few friends from Lindenhurst... I'm a Bay Shore girl myself. ;]

-if you drive long enough in one direction, you'll hit water.

The average New Zealander lives at least an hours drive from the ocean.
For me it's about 10 minutes to the closest beach, 20 to the best one for hanging with friends.

One of the singers from ABBA found out that Atlanta is the rap capitol and decided to move here and make a rap album with such pleasant lyrics like "Bitch you do not ride with me, bitch you do not ride with me. Bitch you ride the Marta bus, bitch you ride the Marta bus." I swear, I don't see how I put up with this city sometimes, between Mr. ABBA Rapper and that crazy Solja Girl (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXz-tlK2pkI)

That's so cool!

The unfortunate part for a Long Islander is you either have to pay money to park (especially in season), or the rich folk bought up all of the beach.
At least there are a few beaches that aren't too far and are easy enough to get into. :)

you have to pay to park at a beach? Stink.
During summer, it's just first in first served, if you can find a park, you gun for it, it's quite scary sometimes haha.
We also have the rich problem of rich folk, but only with their huge houses taking up what used to be parking spaces, but the beaches are still public land, except for the rare beach which falls on their property land, in which case you're not allowed to access the beach, but some rick folk are nice and let people anyway.

Yeah, it does. There's this one whacky beach not that far from my house that charges twenty-five dollars during the season. And some places you need a Town's Residence Pass.
There's loopholes in the whole "rich people" thing though. They'll have a gated beach community, but if you park on the other side, you can walk down to where the fence ends. xD

I live in Somerville.  Super close to Boston, fluff was invented here.  If you haven't tried fluff you haven't lived!  Mountains and ocean all in short driving distance.  I quite like it.

And I thought I marched there one time, because I recognised the whole cheese market thing. But I think that was in Alkmaar? During the cheese days....
